Andracor - your Fantasy Shop and manufacturer of Larp Clothing & Larp Costumes. The Medieval Online Shop for Live Roleplaying & Reenactment
Andracor has been a household name in the German Larp world since the late 1990s. Especially our leather armor from our own production found many fans early on. It was our desire to make a part of what makes up the hobby of Larp and the Middle Ages for us, i. e. to produce beautiful things with our own hands, into a profession. The leather production in our workshops in Berlin has always been the heart of Andracor, and it is here that the greatest amount of hard work has always been invested.
But growing also means changing and so we are now at a point where the production of leather armor and leather accessories is still an important part of Andracor. But in addition there are now many other products from the world of the Middle Ages, fantasy, western, steampunk and other genres to discover.
Also since the 90s, some of our team have been enthusiastic role-players, medieval fans and reenactors. This way we have a good connection to different parts of our hobby. We hope that we can help you with what we produce or distribute to make your ideas and dreams come true!
What's Andracor doing? Our leather products made in Germany
Leather armor belongs to fantasy and live role-playing as well as magic, orcs and the undead. In fact, this type of armour is very versatile and can be used for a large number of character concepts. Worn as light armor over clothing, it protects mages who are not normally allowed to wear metal armor. In combination with e. g. a gambeson, it offers an alternative to heavy chain mail shirts for the light-footed ranger or skirmisher. But also the character for the rough often chooses a leather armour as the top layer over his chain mail.
For customers who are more interested in real world history, the matter is made a little more difficult, as the use of leather armor is limited to a fairly manageable selection of types. But lamellar armour, scaled armor or particularly thick pieces of leather have been documented. Additionally, combinations of leather and metal or even boiled leather armor parts that have been "hardened" in wax, for example are quite realistic. In this area we will expand our product range in the future and hope to be able to satisfy those who are not very fantasy-minded or want to emulate a historical style.
In addition to these practical considerations, the aesthetic qualities of a beautifully crafted leather armor are an aspect that makes leather so popular:
It can be easily dyed, painted, punched, engraved, sewn, decorated with rivets or simply left as it is.
Andracor offers a wide range of different armor and accessories that have always been designed with practicality and action in mind. For example, the inclined live role-player cannot take advantage of a beautiful, but poorly manoeuvrable and in the worst case, fragile leather armour.
That's why, in addition to the design, quality is also a demand that Andracor wants to meet in every armour manufactured here in Berlin. The leather we use is vegetable tanned and is exclusively high quality upper leather or suede.
In addition to our standards, there has always been the possibility of customising existing designs or models and, for example, adapting the colour scheme of the leather to suit your own requirements.
Garments, Larp - Weapons, Make-Up, Special Effects - Whatever you need.
For Andracor, it is a big step from concentrating on the production of leather armaments and accessories back into the world of online retailing.
Our range of products will cover different areas and make it possible to purchase everything you as a customer need from us. Whether ladies or gentlemen, children or young people, for every medieval fan, larper or cosplayer there will be something to choose from. We will try to have a suitable selection for different tastes and budgets.
The right clothing is perhaps the most important thing when it comes to representing a harmonious figure, whether in Larp, reenactment or cosplay. Here it is important to reconcile one's own taste, requirements of the role, one's own wallet and many other factors. Also for those who only want to dress up as an exception, e. g. for a medieval wedding, a medieval party, a theme party or something similar, we have the right thing for you. We try to offer you a growing selection for many areas.
Many of them focus on medieval fashion. Of course, clothing during the approximately 1000 years of the Middle Ages underwent changes just as profound as all the other facets of society during that time. Since many hobbyists in the area of fantasy at least roughly orientate themselves on the historical forms, we use a chronological classification into the epochs of the Middle Ages. Early Middle Ages, High Middle Ages and Late Middle Ages clothing often differs markedly from one another. Tunics for Vikings, Celts, Normans or the high medieval knight as well as for the Ranger or Elves, archers and the simple craftsman. Shirts and waistcoats, knee-length trousers etc. for Renaissance fans, or the flashy lansquenet. Frock coats for cloak and dagger enthusiasts or mangy pirates. History gives us great inspirations for both historical settings and fantasy.
The clothing for Western, Steampunk, Endzeit or Zombielarp is also varied and we don't want to neglect them, but we want to extend our offer here as well. Of course, we already have some cream pieces on offer. Bodices and corsets, uniform jackets and much more.
In order to survive on the battlefield, armour is an excellent aid, not to mention the great look it usually provides! We offer you a selection of different types of armour, which are designed for the safe use of foam weapons and provide you with the necessary level of protection.
The plate armour we offer is tailored to the needs of those who want to wear it not only as decoration but also want to use it in the field. Therefore, the armour must of course meet certain safety and comfort standards, such as folded edges.
We don't really have to say much more about our leather armour, but we would like to point out once again that we are proud to have our own leather production here in Berlin and that we are planning to expand on it!
Also new at Andracor is our large selection of foam and decorative weapons for Larp, reenactment and cosplay. As with our entire range, we want to offer you a wide selection and serve different tastes. We have suppliers like Iron Fortress, Forgotten Dreams Design, Windlass (and soon Freyhand) on offer!
We are also particularly proud of our small but fine range of bows, which are suitable for Larp just as well as for conventional, sporty use. Long bows, recurve and reflex bows are among them, as well as a selection of quivers and padded arrows for safe use against "soft" targets, as well as pointed medieval-style target arrows for the ambitious shooter.
When it comes to staging all the beautiful costumes, armor and weapons, it is often the details that make a very average costume into an eye-catcher. Things like belts, gloves, a matching piece of jewellery or a practical and elegant scabbard are often the deciding factors when everything should be harmonious.
Make-up and special effects
A whole bunch of character concepts also live from the fact that you differ externally from your normal self! Andracor offers you a wide range of latex appliqués for elves, orcs, satyrs, vampires, trolls and more. Of course there are also the matching teeth, make-up, contact lenses, whigs, masks and all sorts of other things. Also for Helloween and carnival there might be quite a few items to choose from!
