First of all: Welcome! My name is Janneke. I live in the Netherlands, and like most people of my age my life is mostly filled with studying and spending time with friends, family and my boyfriend W. Things I like to do are reading, drinking tea, cooking, dancing, singing and playing games like Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering. That’s right, I love everything that has to do with fantasy and roleplaying, as you probably allready figured out by reading this blog.
When I was 18 years old, I went to the first live roleplay event in my life and it was love at first sight. Just the sheer fun of being someone or even something else than just your normal everyday person can be amazing! Being a nobleman, monster, elf or wizard for a day or two can change the way you look at yourself, the people around you and best of all: make a lot of friends!
Almost 6 years have gone by now, and I still have a lot of fun visiting different events, writing characters and especially: making costumes. Every new character is a good excuse to make a new costume, because for me that’s half the fun of live roleplay. With this blog, I hope to inspire fellow roleplayers to make their own costumes and go one step beyond the pirate-shirt-and-green-cloak LARP outfit.
