Scalemail tutorial

Hi there!

Recently I got lots of questions about how I made my scalemail haltertop. I wanted to make a new one with bigger scales, so I decided this is the right time to make a tutorial about it!

What do we need?

  • Scales, mine are from thequeenring.com
  • Rings, also from the thequeenring.com
  • 2 Pliers
  • Thread to hold your scales in place

I always start with making a knot on one scale, this is so I can easily find the beginning.
Next you have to add one scale on both sides. Open one ring and put one scale through it. Make sure all the scales are facing you with the back (concave side).
Now you have a beginning!

What you have to do now is adding 3 scales, one on the left, one in the middle and one on the right.
I always keep in mind that the fourth row needs 4 scales and the fifth row needs 5 scales and so on. That way I can easily see if I made a mistake.

If you don't want to make triangular pieces this step is important for you.

Start with a normal row, let's say you make a row with 7 scales, like in my picture.

Now you have to add a row with 6 scales. Don't start on the far ends you would do for the triangular pieces, but start at the second scale. If you've finished the row it would look like this.

Now you have to make a row with 7 scales again and after that 6 scales again and repeat this until you are satisfied.

Now you know how to make scalemail, congratulations!

Frolicking in the forest

Hi there!

I was staying at my parents house, it was such a lovely day and I thought I'd go for a walk in the forest with my dog.

There were so many mushrooms in the forest, it's a shame I don't know which one are edible :(

In the middle of the forest is a camp in style of the iron age. It's for school children to learn. I've been there when I was 11 or 12. I loved it, it was my best schoolweek ever haha.


These sheep are from the iron age camp. They go to this massive grassfield once in a while.
The sheep were really friendly! I thought they would be scared because I was with my dog and he was pulling on the leash to get to them, but they came up to us and sniffled on Beertje (I hold him in my lap so he couldn't hurt the sheep).

It was kinda dangerous to walk because there were so many 'Tamme Kastanjes' that fell from the trees.

I didn't spot any wildlife this time but I did see many footprints and found some fresh poop lol.

I found this pile of stones and I thought it looks so eerie, I loved it <3

That's it for now :)

Elfia Arcen 2015

Hi there!

I had a lot of fun this sunday because I've been to Elfia again!
Elfia is a large fantasy fair hold at a castle garden, it is my favorite fair.
There are a lot of cosplayers but also more historical costumes.
I didn't go last year and I really missed it, I was so happy to go back!

I was doubting whether or not to cosplay Tauriel again like last time.
But I decided to wear my beautiful sponsored clothing from Funky Chick Clothing.

On facebook and instagram I read that a lot of my friends were also going, but unfortunately I didn't see anybody on the fair. Which was a total bummer!

This is the only foto I took of my and a cosplayer, I was completely stunned by his beautiful costume! (do not know who the girl supposed to be, I think she was his girlfriend)

I'm not little, those two were massive!

 There was this awesome reenactment village! I loved their clothing and the dogs fitted so much in the village <3

We spend some time frolicking through the castle gardens. Those were really gorgeous! I especially loved the waterfalls. I wish I lived closer so I could visit everyday.

There was also a beautiful barn owl which I got to hold!

I spilled mead on my shirt  

I was looking to buy a viking dress from the market, I couldn't find any unfortunately.
I did buy a beautiful split fluorite braclet and this amazing Mjölnir necklace!

Because I couldn't find a dress on the market I searched on the internet and I did buy this viking dress on Armstreet yesterday.
I ordered it in brown with a green trim. I am really excited because this will be my very first viking dress! 

 That's it for now!

The beginning of something new

Hi there!

Let me introduce myself, my name is Luna and I am from the Netherlands. In November I turned 23 years old. I am in a relationship since 2008. I want to go on an adventure. I am an animal lover and vegetarian. I love fantasy books and movies. I love my pomeranian Beertje.
I think those are the most important things to tell about me.

I am going to use this blog as a way of telling my story and a lot of fashion photos.
I also have a tumblr which I use daily and am heavily addicted too!
