Lorac 8 by Fragrach Lorac 8 by Fragrach
Lorac, Draan(Goatman) Warrior

My current LARP character, played in the german Weltenbrand campaign.

While I made the design, most parts of it were done with the help of family or friends.
Weapons as well as armor were made entirely by good friends.
The mask was mady mostly by a good friend, while I only did minor tasks.
Although I didn't do most of the real work, I am most probably able to answer most questions about how most of the parts were made.

ohne Helm sieht er gefährlicher aus (meine Meinung)

Wobei das sogar mitunter Sinn der Übung ist.
Der Helm unterstreicht ein wenig, dass es sich bei dem Charakter nicht um eine wilde Bestie, sondern eben um ein zivilisiertes Wesen handelt.

The face consists of a polyesther resin skull with a latex face with hair frpm the fur punched through.

This is a wan aswesome looking Goatman!

It doesn't matter the costume is not your own job. It's not about doing it all by your own hands. What counts is that it really look great! It must be so much fun to join such a larp.

I wonder - how many hours can you take wearing that mask?
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011
Thanks for the compliment.^^

It in fact does matter who built it...because I didn't build it, I am unable to build something similar for other people, even if they would be willing to pay me.
The other thing is, that I don't like to treat other people's work as mine.

Depending on the temperature I can wear the costume for certain periods of time. Above 30°c to 35°c, it could be worn for about 8-10 hours I think...below 25°c I think I could wear it for unlimited time, but normally after max. 16-20 hours one has to eat or sleep or just wants to take a shower. XD

Fragrach Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
Everything has it's reason.^^

Nope, it's not about beeing a "hard one"(even my girlfriend can wear her costume nearly as long), more about doing it right.
- drink water whenever it is offered to you and allways have some with you
- don't stay directly in the sunlight, if there is no point in doing it, if possible, stay in the shade
- wind cools you down nearly instantly
Simple things like that can determine, if you're going to have to leave your costume because of heat building up or can continue wearing it for hours.

All right, if I will ever be able to obtain such a great costume, I will surly listen to your advices (;
I wish we had such professional larp guys in Poland. There are some people who treat it seriously but in general we don’t have such great suits.
I haven’t been to any larp yet, but I’m an old rpg player and in future, I’m surly going to make myself a great costume and run all over the forest with a giant sward. Or something better ;D

:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011
If you want to build something like that, I can surely help you with tutorials etc.^^
I don't know much about Larp in Poland...except maybe, that I know of one guy, who makes really stunning leather armor.
[link]
I thought about driving to his location, because I wanted him to make my next armor...luckily the person who built my old armor from gemany came back from his retirement and built, what I use at the moment.*g*
Does Larp in Poland support such characters?
If there is no possibility to play them, that explains, why there are no suits like this.
What kind of costume, do you want to make?

I'm sure our Game Masters would love to have such well made character costume in their story, but I don't really think that many of us could afford such a suit. The website you've showed me is great but their prices are very high. Their work is worth that money, but unfortunately I just don't have it.
(However I have to admit, that silicon elf-ears implants are not that expensive and they tempt me very much... ;D).
If I could create myself any costume I would surely be a dragon xD
But honestly I don’t have a real idea for such a character yet.
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
It's not really a question of price, bot more of how much you are able to make with your own hands. For example my girlfriend paid about 400€ without the weapons and made everything herself...while I had to pay 3500€, because I'm not good at creating stuff. XD
And I think, where you live, some materials might be even less expensive, than here.
Sometimes it's not the question of having or not having the money at the moment...it's more about, could you wait long enough to save that amount of money?
While I had to raise the 3500€, most of the time I lived off 200€ a month...I was a student at that time.
Silicone elf ear implants?
Are they removable or permanent?
I'm at the moment looking forward to the results of a professional costume maker, who plans a dragon in the future. Should I inform you, if something valuable is found out?
Especially the problem with the scales, is what makes dragons difficult.
What else would you plan as a character?

It's a great design and an awesome realistation.

I especially like the mask, very realistic! what were the horns made of?
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
Thanks for the compliments.^^

The horns are made of foam, reinforced with leather, coated with latex, painted and sealed with isoflex. In the end, they are built quite similar to latexweapons.

Ist zwar nicht mein Genre, aber handwerklich seeeehr geniale Arbeit.
Wie ist denn die Beweglichkeit in so einem Outfit, ich hab ja eher mit dem Gewicht der Ausrüstung zu kämpfen...
Aber wie gesagt optisch absolut Daumen hoch ;-)
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2010
Vielen Dank.

Die Beweglichkeit ist eigentlich ganz ordentlich, auch das Gewicht ist nicht allzu hoch...denke alles in Allem...10-15kg? Geht also wirklich noch. Hauptproblem ist eher der Hitzestau, aber auch der ist bei ausreichendem Wasserkonsum auszuhalten.
Danke also für das Kompliment.^^

Fragrach Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010
That sounds...disgusting. Oo
Although not every larp in germany looks good...
I know of some locations, where larps are in germany with a low costume standard take place, but at least they have costumes.
Over the time I have started to select where I go, to avoid such larps with low standards.

:iconbandanaboyred:
bandanaboyred Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010
yeah I basically don't larp anymore because the few larps that do have costumes and rp usually have ridiculous rules or are way too expensive. I've tried starting my own but no one here larps lol
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010
Here I tend to select the larps I go to depending on the quality of the costumes and if possible an easy set or even better no rules at all. These larps also tend to have good rp mostly.
Concerning price, I rather pay a huge amount of money and have a good larp, than pay less to get less for ist.^^
My personal maximum would be 300€, which is about 400 dollar...
The most expensive larp I have heard of was 250€, which would be about 330 dollar. Sadly I couldn't participate, because my costume wasn't finished yet...which I regret after seeing the pictures and hearing the reviews. XD

geez lol, thats alot of money. i am just a lowly college student who barely has enough money for ramen noodles haha, so i definately couldn't afford that. my whole costume costs about 100 or so $ haha. hopefully when i move to colorado there will be better larps.
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010
Well, at the time I was able to use the costume the first time, the costume had cost me about 2500€, which would be about 3300 dollar. At that time I was a lowly college student...and heaven knows, how I got that money together. XD
The recent status(which I should upload pictures of...) of the costume has cost me a bit more than 3500€, which would be about 4600 dollar. XD
I hope to move a bit north within germany next year...which would drastically reduce the time it takes to drive to larps...because the larps in the surrounding region are either too historical for my character or have low costume standards.

:O omg...that's so much money lol...yeah i could never spend that much, even if i made it...i wouldn't have the patience lol. do you have any tutorials on what you did? could you offer any advice? i was thinking about making a bear for larping someday when i get a job that pays more than minimum wage lol.
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2010
I have some tutorials, but I'd like to ask some questions first, to see, if you could make any use of them.

How much would you like to invest in that project?
It doesn't make sense, if you want to work low budget.

How warm is it, where you live?
Because the costumes are quite hot and difficult to use above 30°c.

What exactly do you plan?
Depending on that I'd have to give you different tutorials.

Woah! Never seen a LARPer wearin a fursuit before! I guess i'm not the only one who had i on their mind!

Fursuits are quite common in Germany for playing beast characters.
Other ways like using prostethics and makeup are used quite frequently too, but mostly not appreciated.

RobotPaws Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
I've never been into the prostethics that much, This is the first time I've seen a fursuit for the purpose of LARP though, I figured someone did it though.
So I'm gussing LARP is big in Germany?
I dont really know how big it is in the US, I mean I know its not mainstream.
Reply
:iconfragrach:
Fragrach Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010
Most prosthetics donn't look very convincing anyway...except very good ones, made by experts.
There are some fursuits in german LARP...next weekend I'm going to meet at least 6. There are a lot, that I know, that are built at the moment.
LARP here is not quite mainstream as well, but it's getting there slowly.
Sadly the more historically inspired sector has a larger growth than fantasy.

RobotPaws Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010
Very true indeed.
Well I hope you have fun, I've always wanted to join a LARP group or start one of my own.

And yes, I've noticed that Historical based roleplay is larger then fantasy based LARP. A little dissapointing
