One of the biggest larp-events in Germany (and europe I guess).

For orcs Drachenfest is slowly dieing over the year. Lot's of groups decided to not go there anymore. Instead they go to epic empires (which is in the south of germany)

Good morning, I would like to begin in the manufacture of mask, and I wondered if you could light me on all stages to be followed for the creation of a mask of orc. Thank you in advance!

Amazing work on the caracter the hole concept is amazing.
Specaly the mask, is it working well together whit the helmet ? Cuz i have a hard time to keep my parts from not ripping off when having anytype of headgear.

How is it in the orc camp on Drachenfest? Are u liek rollplaying all the time?
Is Black-speech spoke alot?

We are wearing full masks, so there isnt much trouble wearing head-gear. Plus the helmet is very light.

The orccamp was great, but became worse over time. Now most of the great orc players moved over to Epic Empires. It's a lot better in my opinion (very high standard for costumes and roleplay quality).
And yes, we are roleplaying almost all the time. We start around 11am and end around 6am, sometimes later (but sometimes its hard getting up... =P)

Blackspeech is mostly used for commands, insults and military ranks. Some basic knowledge of the language is recommended.
I am trying to establish a lot more (that's why I wrote a german black speeh guide)

That is realy realy nice do u glue the edges aswell on them to make it fit ?
And i read that its one of ur friends making them? dose he have a homepage or even take orders? i gess he needs a headcast tho.

Is epic empire somewhat as big larp as Drachenfest? Im intrested of seeing some of the Orcs from other contrys. But havgin a hard time to find the information.
Specaly about the orc camp beacus the information is only in german and Googel translate is realy messing things up for me.

The black speetch here is nearly dead i can bearly find a perosn who speaks the few basic words. Witch is realy sad and im trying to promote it here as mutch as possible.
I wonder if we have the same Black speech here in Sweden as in germany, i heard there is a quite big differance form the one tolkien wrote and the so called "scandinavian" Black speech.

We don't glue anything at all. They just fit perfectly, so there is no need to do it.
Actually I know a lot of people who create masks. I used to do them myself though. Two very talented guys are Sander and Julien. You can find their websites here:

www.padubrins.com (julien)
www.sander-propworx.de (sander)

And yes, they need a headcast of course.

Epic Empires is smaller than Drachenfest, but the quality is a lot higer. I understand what you mean with "seeing some Orcs form other countries". I became friends with orcs in czech republic and went to one of their conventions. It was awesome! Always nice to see how other people approach larp.
If you want to get more information about the german larp scene, feel free to ask me. But I am currently not as active as I used to be.

What dialect of black speech do you use? I guess yours is heavily based on scatha? (because he's from sweden)
That's one of the biggest sources I based my black speech guide on.

Uuuuuuuh!! This is a good news! :)
Now I just need to find some friend of LARP, who plan to participate at the Drachenfest !!! 
From Pisa I'm sure will be a lot of hours by car / train Sweating a little... but seeing the convention I think it would be worth.
If in case, we will make a visit in Germany to Drachenfest, can I contact you to ask questions about the camp of the orc-clans? Innocent

These super-cool orcs are one of the main reasons I simply have to get to drachenfest some year. We are actually planning to put together a Finnish group by 2015. I can't wait to see you gyus on the battlefield. Those props are simply the best.

What is this? I just found it by accident. It looks amazing. Is this larp? All I know of larp is silly looking people in crappy costumes. I'm amazed, this is nothing like that.

Larp is what you make out of it.
But I have to agree, most larp looks like crap - we spend A LOT of time to achieve this. :)

It's made out of latex. There is nothing to fancy about the way you create them. Easy to learn, hard to master.

Wow, you guys look even more impressive than what I remember from 2011! Great shot!
But still, you do not look as fearsome as you did in your camp in the middle of the night after the Endschlacht ;)
