Lord of Battles is a major supplier of Live Action Role Playing and Cosplay costume and gear internationally and we are proud to be offering their products to the NZ LARP and Cosplay Communities.
Many of the items listed elsewhere on our site are also suitable for LARP and Cosplay.
However, we can also provide aluminium Maille (or "chainmail) garments that are lighter and cheaper than their iron counterparts. All of our Helmets and Plate Armour items can be made lighter in 1.0mm or 1.2mm steel instead of the thicker 1.6mm or 2.0mm mild steel that we recommend for re-enactment.
The Composite armours are ideal for LARP as they are already light and look good regardless if your character is modelled on a historical warrior or a fantasy inspired one.
Our range of Drinking Horns, Handmade Journals and Accessories is also ideal for props, quest items and to flesh out your character's outfit.
We have listed a few of our products below which we think are ideally suitable for LARP and Cosplay.

This 240 cm long bull whip made of cowhide and is hand-woven. However, we cannot guarantee that the material used is strong enough for shows wth whips such as cowboy use. So we only recommend this whip for decorative or costume purposes only.
A later medieval pouch based on the popular "Kidney" style pouch. It is the most lavish pouch so far in our range made from finely engraved leather on the outside. On the inside there are two expanable pouches that can be opening and closed with a leather tie and there is a third compartment on the inside as well.
5th - 13th Century Leather Lamellar body armour in 4mm thick hardened leather plates.
For Live Action Role Playing you do not need iron maille and because you are moving from location to location, having a light kit is important. Aluminium mail is light and easy to maintain. It also forms the basis of a fantastic looking kit for your warrior character.
This high quality armour is a fully functional replica of the Leeds Brigandine dated 1470. It is suitable for most forms of medieval combat with 150 overlapping steel plates designed to spread the shock of impact across a wide area.
