“I´m playing this character as part of our LARP-group “Aurerijahr“. I love this role, because it is a great acting challenge for me… and I have great fun with fighting :o)
The wildelves are living hidden deep in the woods and mountains, their culture is archaic and kind of barbaric (that´s why the other elves would call them “wild” ;D). This one here is a hunter, a fighter and really dangerous. She is proud of her folk and would give her life for them.
The costume is a ritual clothing, made for ceremonies where a won battle or a successful hunt is celebrated. Then the wildelves are painting their skin with different colors, dirt or the blood of their enemies and are dancing to the sound of their battle drums. So I wear a wide skirt, which rotates while dancing and a short leather top, so that the painted skin can be seen largely.
The combination of a great costume and well-applied makeup really make her look like she’s stepped right out of the forest.
