Cersei Lannister Season 3 metal belt cosplay by Sindeon
Cersei Lannister Season 3 metal belt cosplay
I could not wait to upload this photo, although it is far from a good picture yet. 
It was raining and windy all weekend, so instead of going horseriding, Saturday morning I went to purchase some textile and made this by Sunday night. 

About the dress:
It was a pretty long trial and error process, I made a test-dress of cheap white linen, which turned out awful. So I made a new one (still test) which was almost okay so I started with the real textile. 
I was so lucky: this is actually furniture carpet, but looks awesome, AND: it was gold on the inside and red on the outside. Actually, the seller told me its the other way around, the gold is the outside but who cares. 
The biggest modification I did compared to the real one is that it has a lacing on the back - as a necessary Sindeon-compromise (it might be another girl wearing it, not me, so it can not be made to fit me exactly). 

The belt: 
It has a metal (aluminium) base, covered with textile. The 5 golden panels on the front and the 5 on the back are riveted on this metal base. It gives a great form. 
The curly patterns were added with nail polish before spraying it to a bronz-gold color. 

The belt can be laced on the back, under the middle panel. 

The lion heads are synthetic resin. Its a funny story: we were looking on the internet for a good lion head shape, and found a private seller, really close to our home, selling a tealight holder with a lion head pattern for so cheap. We pushed the head into plasticine, and filled the form with synthetic resin. It was so great, we made 6 of them altough we only needed two. It was glued on the belt before painting. 

Necklace: 
Same as the belt: aluminium, resin-lion, nail polish and golden paint.

Magic wand by Sindeon
Magic wand
We introduced an updated magic system to our camp, and one of the rules describes that every magic user should have his/her own magical focus item. This item can be a staff, a special ring, anything - but of course it can be a magic wand as well! 

How to make one of these? There are lots of tutorials on the internet about turning chopsticks into wands. We thought that it is a great start, but chopsticks are a little short for my taste, so a handle was added. 

Materials used: 
- chopstick
- hot glue from glue pistol for the entwining pattern
- aluminium tube from a home depot store for the handle (just pick one you can put the chopstick into), about 10 cm length
- leather strips for the handle 
- black paint
- I do not know where the end piece comes from, found it in our storage, I guess its a door knob or something. 

The rings attached to it are part of our play system.

Grimoire - hand made spellbooks by Sindeon
Grimoire - hand made spellbooks
We introduced an updated magic system to our camp, and one of the rules describes that every magic user should have his/her own grimoire or spellbook.  

This book contains all the spells available to a person, and when he/she learns something new, has to inscribe it in the book. 

The participating kids all made their own (with our help of course), we had great fun. 

They all share the same basic A5 layout. All of them are simply holed and binded with a leather strip or something similar. The "core" is cardboard paper, the covers are leather or textile, glued.

Winter deer faun by Sindeon
Winter deer faun
Our new "monster" for the winter camp: a cute faun set. 
Made in 2 hours, the antlers are real (bought them at a flea market), attached to a head band. 

I had great fun with this character, especially because the weather was truly beautiful.

Little elven girl by Sindeon
Little elven girl
In our 2014 fall camp, three cute girls played three young elves, who became the owners of the three elven rings. 

I found a nice picture of Ashlinea that I wanted to share with you. See the other girls (in similar but different colored costumes) here: Little elven girls

Of course she forgot to wear her ears for the photoshooting :)

The dresses were newly made for them - the same cape, and the same dress in different colors. The dress design was loosely based on Tauriel's from hobbit.

August of 2014 brought a lot of changes for us. For the last 10 years, we lived in the Lower-Empire; in reality, it was Köveskál (a little village in Hungary). This year, however, we found a perfect place: 12 acres of a national park, 4 scattered houses for lodging, place for horses, etc. 

We worked a lot to become even more epic, and everything worked out perfectly. Check out our newest gallery, and be amazed: without doubt, we are the coolest children's camp ever.

Empress Tainis and her Guardians by Sindeon

Sindeon's Profile Picture
Sindeon
Sindeon
Hungary
Sindeon is a magical kingdom in Hungary, Köveskál. It exists for the first two weeks of August every year, transforming the Káli-basin into the Lower-Empire, with the city of Sindeon in the middle of it. It is a two week summer camp for kids, where they can become whatever they want to: kings, wizards, knights.

On one hand, it is a lot like a LARP event: we dress up, have weapons and monsters. However, everything is made by the organizers (with the kid's help of course), so our own gear hardly fits in a van. The armor, clothes, and weapons you see here are different than at a usual LARP: we do not make them for ourselves, but for every kid who visits us. Nessa is the main sewing girl, and she tries to make dresses so that they can fit a small kid as well as someone taller. Silver is the 'metalsmith': he makes the wood weapons and the aluminium armor.

The weapons are used very differently than in a LARP: they have rings attached to it. The rings define how strong a weapon is, and it is part of the fight system. The fight system is based on putting rings on your finger behind your back, and trying to find out where your opponent pulled it. Having more rings - more likely you succeed.

Sajnos hackerek feltörték a weboldalunkat, így most nem is működik a www.sindeon.hu
Építek egy újat, aminek a kezdeményét megnézheted az uj.sindeon.hu oldalon de az még messze van a késztől
Összerakom most 1-2 héten belül és fent lesz minden, de addig csak összevissza van pár dolog :( 
Talán addig itt van a legtöbb infó: www.facebook.com/sindeontabor/…
