Snow in the Shadows of Wolves

Around the end of last year Scoundrel, Rusty and I went NPCing at a LARP called Im Schatten des Wolfes III (which translates to In the Shadow of the Wolf). It was muddy, it was cold, and in the end we got a beautiful medieval snow day.


I absolutely love it when things look like they’ve jumped right out of an adventure game.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!


10 Things I ♥ in January

January Favourites | Hedgefairy

  1. The Finder was the first thing I bingewatched in 2018. Not only does it remind me of Psych, I also love how the starring female officer isn’t a hard, tough warrior but a capable marshall with a lot of feelings and girly giggles – but that doesn’t make her any less badass (and Willa is super adorable, too).
  2. Adriene’s traditional first month of the year yoga series, TRUE.
  3. Fuzzimo, a site full of textures, fonts and other fun things, and all for free AND under a CC license. I found Antoniu’s work via his incredibly handy embossed label generator (prepare to see that again in the future). If you’re doing creative things on the internet and off make sure to pay him a visit.
  4. Days getting longer again. It’s still dark when we pack up at work at the afternoon markets but I can really see the change from week to week.
  5. My new Tattoo! There was no way this wouldn’t end up here.
  6. Don’t Starve: Shipwrecked. I’ve had so much fun with this. Not only brought it Walani, the incredibly chill surfer girl, into the game (more strong girl characters! Yay!) but also a great take on the whole “exotic island” trope, treasure maps in bottles, agressive dolphins and all. And now please excuse me while I sink more of my time into this game.
  7. Whendi’s Bears are such beautiful little treasures. They have this sad, haunted look about them and I LOVE the artificial aging and distressing, it’s so incredibly well done! I was instantly smitten and had a hard time on picking my favourites to link to, but here are a small bulldog named Hope, a dog from the circus, a reel tiny ellyfont and a white rabbit to get you started. Oh, bonus points for the ice-skating hare. ♥
    And the kelpie-ness of this horse. See how hard it is to play favourites here?!
  8. This gallery of convicted minors called Fagin’s Children. I love looking at photographs of rugged Victorians (or Edwardians, I really don’t care that much) as they are a class often neglected by the more romantisising movements like Steampunk or Neo-Victorians. Rosanne Watson looks so wonderfully defiant and Robert Charlton would have certainly made quite a handsomely rougueish devil later on, and I wonder what became of all of them.
  9. Character Bleed 101 by LarpHouse on Youtube. Bleed occurs when your feelings influence your character’s and vice versa, and while it’s often seen as something negative or even “unprofessional” this video explains the whole thing wonderfully – and why it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
  10. 2018. The year has treated me well so far – I got my new tattoo already, got going with my projects and the new place is coming along well enough. I’ve watched stuff that made me feel incredibly warm and fuzzy inside, had great dinners with some friends and wonderful chats with others and am overall so thankful for thos new year, because it actually feels like a really fresh start this time.

Off to ConQuest

I’m sorry it’s been so quiet during the last two weeks here but I did little more than sleep, work, eat and prep for my favourite week of the year: ConQuest.

When you read this I’m either already on the road to Brokeloh or most probably running in circles, flailing and shouting because I’m not sure what I forgot to pack.

I hope you have a most wonderful week (after which I’ll hopefully throw post after post at you showing off all the things I made lately) because I know I will.

I love you all and I’m looking forward to see you after this adveture.

Hugs and kisses,
Hedge ♥♥♥


UFO Friday

UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.


As always I’ve been doing quite some darning. Keeping my clothes wearable is one of my favourite things to do – and I even like it when it’s visible that they’ve been worn, torn and mended a few times.


With my work pants I’ve established the habit that they all get a secondary colour for mending. My black work pants have a yellow back pocket, and my tan ones get green. The pockets were in no real condition to put anything in there anymore so I finally replaced them with some secondhand placemat fabric.



Of course I’m crafting for ConQuest like a madwoman. My most current project were these small pennants to mark which of the sleeping tents are ours. The stencils came out a little bit messier than I would have liked them to be but overall I’m really pleased about the final result.

Gotta stop typing now, I’m being tickled and somebody’s trying to hit random keys as I write. I love my friends. ^^

Pretty lacy tablemats as fabric. | Hedgefairy

I’ve been really lucky in terms of thrifting pretty print fabrics lately, especially small tablemats and pillow covers. Some of them still have lace on them so I finally took out the seam ripper and made them into actual “just” pieces of fabric.Cloth ban cicle for LARP. | HedgefairyWednesday morning Scoundrel came to me and asked if I could make a last-minute ban cloth for a LARP character with a dangerous artifact. Of course I could with a little help from my scrap heap and some white acrylic paint, and for once there is an action shot, too!Printable LARP countdown. | HedgefairySpeaking of LARP I’m colouring my countdown as I go and cross off the days left to conquest. I know that some others have printed it as well and are already done colouring, that makes me so happy!
