A costume I made from scratch (all but the corset) for a larp campaign here in Sweden. - Eleria.
This was taken in September 2012 by Henrik Hanberg.

The character is a fire fairy and quite old, like an embodiment of "Ember" or "Glow" - Glöd, which is the same word in Swedish.

The costume consists of an underdress, an overdress, a patchwork robe, a corset, a feather collar and a crown. Plus bits and bobs and a flowing chiffon robe. - And my Sunshine Box! :D

Headdress is made out of copper, findings, leather and rooster feathers.

I have been playing this OC for several years now. Still love it.

Such fun, grins, you should be doing stock work you know.

I never really got what that is about... So you take a bunch of photographs, and then people use them as reference and outline in their digital art, linking back to you? :)

Stock is generally used in a number of ways. As a reference for traditional or digital drawings, paintings, sculpture and so on. As components for a digital or even traditional collage or photo manipulation. As studies for sketching, practicing your drawing skills, learning how the figure actually moves and looks in all sorts of poses and anything from classical views to extreme foreshortening, {quite popular in comic and anime art}, serious study of the nude figure in all of its many forms, shapes, colors, ages, and so on. As guides for the drape of clothing and costumes, or as a setting for something, which is what a lot of landscapes are used for. I have seen some marvelous watercolor landscapes that people could not have done without stock as the artist would never have been able to visit the area, and what is in books and such is all copyrighted, where as stock allows such use. Each stock artist has the right to set the rules of use for their stock, as the photographer, as the model, or as the creator of the stock in the first place. Keeping the rules reasonable is always a good idea. In my own stock there is a lot of theater, doing wizardly, or elder sets, or elder figure studies. But also a lot of stones, crystals, river shots, mountain shots and so on. :) Then if your rules require it, yes they must let you know that they have used your image in their work, or in some cases they may send you a copy of the work they created for your own collection or folio. :)

It's me, and I am wearing so called circle lenses. They cover the outline of the iris and doesn't give you pinprick eyes like regular disco/rave/crazy lenses. I strongly recommend them. They also enlarge your eyes.

Apparently, though quite old, our Fairy has never quite gotten to the 'adult' stage. :lick:
