Costume Information


Allow me to explain. over the past week or so I have become enamoured with a Horrible Historians Forum (having becom 'Heliogabalus'. The people on this forum are amazing, they are some of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of talking to.

We're planning a fan meet later on in the year at Warwick Castle, and quite a fewof us are dressing up. Since I love Elagie's character, I've decided to go as him *and throw venomous snakes at passers-by*



absoutely awesome. horrible histories is brilliant

The Sash (Posted 15th August 2011)

The sash is over 2.5 meters long and is also made of dark blue Countess Satin. It has approximately 500 gold spos on it, which took about three hours to paint on. It is now completed, as I made a thick bias out of gold Countess Satin, and have attached it.

I feel very cool wearing it around the house ^^

The Tunic (Posted 14th August 2011)

The tunic is made out of dark blue Countess Satin, and painted with gold iron-fix fabric paint. the design took six hours to paint on all together xD It's actually really comfy xD
