For more than fifteen years now, we have been producing a wide range of clothing and accessories for live action role playing (LARP ) groups, historical re-enactments, and science fiction / Star Trek fans, as well as for stage & TV., and recently film. With this amount of experience under our belts, we like to think we can cope with most requests, however unusual.

In these pages, we have included our basic range of LRP costume &armour;, as well as some pictures of some of the more unusual things we have made.
