Bee kit review

5000REM is having a kit drive. I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it’s an excuse to make new kit. I’m supposed to be finishing my bathroom tiling, and prepping for my Uni course, but I’m sure I can…

LARP kit

Went back to FnH recently, which involved a few different craft projects. Mostly for Dans new feral elf character rather than myself, mind. Ears; Dan has weird ears. He claims no elf ears have ever fitted him. That sounded like…

Gauntlets

I’ve been helping a friend put together a feral Elf costume. I made him some leather arm pieces from scraps I had lying around. But they took him ages to put on and lace up, and he’s too skinny and…

Nail art

Cinderella

I made this costume a couple of years ago for my mum to wear at school on Book Day, but dug it out recently for a fancy dress party. It’s based on Disneys Cinderella, the classic version from the film,…

5000 REM Fashion Shoot

My character in 5000 REM is a bit of a fashionista. She even has her own clothing line. I’ve been putting costumes together and taking photos to use to show these off on her blog, Bee Grotesque.
