The Tea-Drunk Tailor

I work in a museum about the military and spend my spare time on the back of a horse or dressing up like crusty old dudes.

This is predominately a costuming blog but also includes:

Jousting,

Dragon Age,

Emperor Maximilian I,

and Bizarre Historical Things

Apologies for the absence! Life has been incredibly busy but I got to play a little Dragon Age: Origins and DA2. Haven’t finished either yet, though. Fenris is not a slave.
I’ll going to Sakuracon this weekend with tracynoodle!Find us in the Artist Alley at Table 507.


This is hella intense. Nice work!

Dear white people,
Please stop cosplaying as PoC characters.
Thank you.
Sincerely,Everyone.

Dear little-missandry,
Anyone can cosplay as anyone/anything they want. Also, that’s the actual voice actress for Korra. She literally IS the avatar.
Thank you

True Story: If I had extra forehead, I would cosplay Stannis in a heartbeat.

opheliarisen asked: Hey! I wanted to pick your brain about somethind real quick. You had mentioned something about also needing to figure out how to pin a hood to a wig, and i figured I would use hair combs, but my problem is figuring out wear the best place for them so that it isn't pulling my wig off. Any suggestions?

Hey! What I would do is sew two or three wig clips on the inside of your wig to make sure it sits nice and securely on your head. Tbh, I do this with all of my wigs just in case and it’s great not having to worry about it falling off. Once the wig clips are on there and you’ve clipped it into your normal hair, I would stitch two hair clips (the kind that snap to close) to the inside of the hood, perhaps four inches from the front and about five inches apart. Clip these on to your wig to position your hood where you want it. Of course, you’ll see the clips when the hood is down but if you wear it up most of the time, that’s not a huge deal.

Hope this helps! (Ngl, my life would end without wig clips…)

Things I Would Like to Know: How did Cailan Theirin turn out to be such a fool?

I mean, besides the obvious. Maric.

I presume his upbringing started off okay while Rowan was alive but then it went downhill after her death and no one bothered to see that he was instilled with the right ideas.

"Our beloved republic is in the hands of madmen. This is indeed a dark day, and I stand at a fork in the road. I can surrender my arms, in accordance with the law and watch Rome fall to tyranny and chaos. Or, I can return home with my sword in my hand and run these maniacs to the Tarpeian rock!"

I have a hard time putting my love for this series into words.

tapsters:

I have ruled this nation on Cailan's behalf for many years.
I am a great queen, and as beloved by my people as I love them.

Okay, I really, REALLY dig this.

azimedes:

"The bear! The bear! The maiden fair!"
When I saw this bear cosplayer (from Brave! :D) I knew what I had to do.

Then there’s Jaime on the sidelines: “Don’t worry, Brienne! Let me give you a hand! Wait… “
