Vampire LARP character - Tremere regent by Sindeon
Vampire LARP character - Tremere regent
The organizers of Sindeon are not only organizing their own game, but also participating on many other roleplaying programs. 
Some of us are part of the Budapest by Night program, a LIVE / LARP Vampire: the Masquerade. 
My character here is a Tremere regent and quaesitor, the event was titled 'Giovanni Casino', with the mood set for 1920's (Great Gatsby style). 
Those who are interested in this, can recognize that my headdress shows the Tremere clan symbol.

What is this about? Sindeon is a LARP-styled children's camp in Hungary. Our nonprofit organization creates all the costumes, armors, weapons. The fight system is not combat-oriented; we do not use latex/boffer swords but a ring-based complex rule book.

Steampunk Nerf Maverick by Sindeon
Steampunk Nerf Maverick
Something really new for us!

Medieval / Lord of the Ring / Game of Thrones style setting - done. Armors - done. Swords, all kind of weaponry, archery - done. 

But how could we live our fantasy life for 16 years without some technological advancement? So here comes the new weaponry. 

When we found out about NERF toy gun remakes, we knew this is what we need. We looked into paintball, airsoft, but none seemed compatible for a children's camp, until NERF. This thing is awesome, shoots well, and looks great. So we bought 18 of these (not all Mavericks, some Strongarm, Roughcut, Mega are also in the mix), took it apart, airbrushed it and put it back together.
For our winter camp we also bought ~500 bullets, and we had great fun shooting each other with it!

Story integration: if you read the Powder Mage trilogy, you can imagine how it works in our world. If you did not read it, go and buy it, its a great book. Basically, you need a special "powder" (gun-powder, or in our case, demon-world-powder) to make it work, but if you are willing to take the risks and also eat this powder, you can make special magic with it beside shooting. For example, guided bullets (you dont have to really guide the bullets, in this case it works like magic, you just shout it), double-damage bullets, etc. 

The funny thing is, our kids (for some strange reason) love to eat the 'Bolero' drink powder in itself, without water. So instead of giving them gunpowder, we give them this drink powder, and if they want to do magic (yes they want) they have to eat it (yes they want). We bought like 250 sacks of these and they are all gone in 4 days :)

LARP priestess by Sindeon
LARP priestess
On the last weekend of 2015 August, we went to a Hungarian LARP organized by the Lumina Cornu team.
Two years ago, on their last event, we played a group of nomads (see the pictures in this gallery: sindeon.deviantart.com/art/Gro… )
This year, we were the elite armored force of a local monarch - 9 guys fully armored, loaded with weapons (each had a 2,5 m polearm, a 1,2 m sword, a 0,3 m dagger, shields, bows and arrows).
The girls did not much want to participate in combat, so we became witches and priestesses.

The whole group played the worshippers of Orwella (in this game world, a chaotic goddess). These priestess costumes (3 of them freshly made for this event) were designed by me.
The mail symbolicism of the dress is the following: the goddess's symbol is a hearth with snakes in it, usually worn close to your own heart. Soooo, I made the cleavage heart-shaped, and attached a snake-patterned medallion in the middle. Thanks to GaiasAngel who was so kind to let us use here pattern, you can see the snakes in medallion here: gaiasangel.deviantart.com/art/…

It was fun, although we were terribly slaughered by zombies, and turned into undeads.

Knights on the field by Sindeon
Knights on the field
Photoshoot of Sindeon's new armor items. The chainmail was our winter project, for the long dark nights; the rest was made during the summer. When our camp starts (August 2nd) we want to finish at least 4 sets with basinets (the helmet, so far only 2,5 are done).  
Includes a gambeson, chainmail, the breastplate is leather-covered 1.5 mm thick aluminium. 
Wooden swords as typical in Sindeon. 

Darix-Dragon was already sooo nice, he wrote a poem to this picture: 

Knights standing on fields of gold
Warmth of the day trading for nights cold
Vigilant their watch shall be through the black
Until golden rays once more are back

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.

Wow awesome concept for a camp!:D I am really amazed. I wish something like that exist where I am. Well, some day I guess... or maybe I get to visit some in other countries. By the way, I came across your tutorials before, but I never commented, so I think now is the time :D they are very helpful! I specially like how you made that winter coat (I have seen which one inspired you, and I can say you done very good job on it :') ).

Greetings from Serbia
