Tales out of Anchor


The preceding three costume posts were all for the same game, Tales out of Anchor Event 2, held at YHA Langdale in the first week of February. Here you see the finished outfit.

My entire character, never mind the outfit, started with the tailcoat, which is proof that you should always look in the charity shop even if you were in there last week. The reason my TooA character is a Navy man – or the closest equivalent when you live on a flying island and pilot a zeppelin – is so I could turn up in this coat. The rest of the costume was made to go with it.

Photos taken in-character by photographic wizard Tom Garnett. Period effects on the top picture also by Tom.
