Epic Circle Introduction by Fell&Fair
The Fell & Fair team walks you through their creative process as they build a culture for a LARP event. Then, they provide a step-by-step guide for using the Epic Circle to build a kit for that culture.
The Epic Circle
The Epic Circle is our creative solution for pairing products across our many unique collections. We manufacture a wide range of costumes, makeup, and props for Live Action Role Play (LARP), aiming to serve your needs as costumers and role players. With so many designs to choose from, we wanted to create an easy way for you to sort through our collections--while being inspired by the possibilities!
Our goal is to help you create a character aesthetic you are going to be excited to show off at your next LARP. To this end, we created the Epic Circle.
The Epic Circle includes eight distinctive universes, each with their own themes, colours, and materials. Originally created to guide product development, these themes were our design standards when crafting new product ideas. Now they also serve as a tool for you!
Pick products from within a specific collection in order to create a unified and themed look. If you’re looking to play a mystical fae creature, you may find all you need within our Ethereal collection! Whereas a ranger or rogue will find all they need in our Defiant collection.
Looking to create a more dynamic look? Each universe collection can be paired with items from their neighbors. Choose a basic costume from one universe, and mix and match the rest from universes to the left and right on the circle. Turn your fae into a dark unseelie by combining products from Ethereal and Stygian--or turn them into more of a trickster by including a few Defiant tools!
Generally speaking, the only products that don’t work well together are from collections across the circle from each other. We’ve organized our collections in this way so that you can narrow down your search. If you’re looking to create a Roman soldier, you likely won’t find matching costume pieces within our Stygian collection. That said, you may still find combinations that work for you. We are excited about your creativity and look forward to seeing what you come up with!
Our catalog is expanding quickly as our company grows, adding to our extensive list of functioning, creative and safe products every year. Most of our products are handmade, built with our love and passion for the hobby. We hope that the Epic Circle serves as a useful navigational tool, and that you will be satisfied with a costume to match your epic character!
