Here you can find all attributes, like clasps, cloak pins, masks, wings etcetera. Check below for our replicas and own designs.
Legolas wears a silver clasp in the movies of ‘the Hobbit’ by Peter Jackson, which we have made a replica of by putting two componet clay on top of an iron wire frame. It was sanded and sprayed silver for a convincing effect. We try to achieve close to perfect replicas and looking at the smallest details is very important to do so.
The same goes for the silver cloak pins that the character Lindir wears in the same movies. They are based on the golden cloak pins that Lord Elrond wears on his cape. Based on a picture we managed to replicate these pins quite convincingly, using iron wire, clay, sandpaper, silver paint and lots of patience.
The thirteen buttons on Lindir’s coat are just as detailed, even though you wouldn’t say so when quickly looking at them. Using pictures as a reference, we detailed them with fine curly lines, like they are cast in silver piece by piece like the ones in the movies.
It is the details which make a costume convincing.
|The Phantom of the Opera
For various costumes from the musical ‘the Phantom of the Opera’, we made attributes that look close to the originals.
For example, we replicated the mask of the Red Death (a few times already), in the shape of a skull with moveable jaws. We did this with great care and detail and made to size of the customer’s face.
During the same scene in the musical, the so-called ‘Masquerade’ scene, in which a rich party of masked people is dancing on the great staircase of the Paris Opera, Christine Daaé dances in het outfit, holding a silver mask, decorated with stars and beads. This mask we replicated for the customer with lots of details.
For the movie version of the musical, we replicated a silver mask, that is also placed on a stick. It is decorated with lace, ribbon and a pink rose, that goes well with her dress with rose decorations.
When the theatre group Ingrallae asked us to make costumes for their theatre performance on stilts we were just as excited as they were. They thought up a story for sixteen people in their group. Two groups of fairies, good ones and evil ones, are agains each other. At the top of each group is one fairy leader, who has a more complex costume than its followers. A battle will be fought over a staff, that gives power to anyone who owns it. During the performance, the staff would go from the evil party into the hands of the good party.
For this purpose we designed a staff, composed of wooden roots on a long, pointy stick. In the staff we hid two types of illumination; one in the colour red for the evil party and one in the colour blue for the good fairies. This would give an impressive effect in the evening.For this purpose we designed a staff, composed of wooden roots on a long, pointy stick.

With the golden elven costume we designed golden elven wings to match the costume. They are lined with golden glitter tulle and decorated with golden lace applications, for a dreamy and rich effect.
For the good fairy and her two shorter followers of the theatre group Ingrallae we designed and made wings to match the costumes that are light and easy to carry. On top of that they are fitted with lights, so they can be illuminated during an evening performance.
|Beadwork on a tablecloth
Ludwig II., the king of Bavaria in the nineteenth century, well-known for his white dreamy castle of Neuschwanstein, was also called the fairytale king. People called him crazy because he dared to dream. We think he is inspiring instead and that’s why we made a beadwork painting after a childhood drawing Ludwig made.
It depicts a white swan, one of his favourite animals, in a pond next to a tree. We added an edelweiss (the national flower of Bavaria) and a crescent moon. It resulted into a freehand and dreamy little piece of art.
