Yet again I have been remiss in posting. On the other hand it now means I have lots to talk about!
We also had a second booth for the Alliance Calgary LARP chapter. It was manned by members in full costume and sold latex LARP weapons as well as a few costume pieces I had prepared! I sold my very first pre-prepared piece!
Unfortunately, in the middle of this hectic weekend, we also said goodbye to another of our fur babies. Loki, our little terror of only 5, had become ill some weeks before hand, and we had thought he was getting over it with the medication. However it was much more serious than we had first thought and Cory had to let him go very early on Saturday morning, April 28th. How he managed to get through the rest of the weekend, I don’t know. Having to work the crazy hours of the Expo was a definite distraction.
I currently have material for 6 more women’s shirts in various colours and two more men’s shirts. They will be in a range of sizes. Hopefully this will help my sales (I hope).
For May’s event, our first weekend event, we needed a ton more monster tabards and new “battle” costumes for Cory & myself. As well as a beautiful gold cloak for my character for the night part of the event. While I concentrated on getting the costume pieces done, the tabards were done by the wife of a LARP member who used to be an industrial seamstress. I still don’t know how she got them all done so fast!!

Various animal hats
Six women’s shirts
Two men’s shirts
Plus I have a roll of really nice brown material that looks a little like leather that I’m not sure what to do with…
