LARP: Passion, love and sweat.
Last week you read what LARP is about. Today I want to tell you how much “work” it can be.
The equipment should not only be functional, but has to reflect the species, homeland and skills of your character. The building of LARP-weapons is quite difficult for example. It doesn’t matter, if you want a sword, halberd or small dagger. First you need core, made of a glass fiber. After that, a few layers of foam material, which you cut in the form your weapon should have. The last step is varnishing it with latex in a color of your choice. Et voilà, a harmless but hopefully good-looking LARP-accessory is finished and ready for battle!
