Trail Blazers

Just outside the boundaries of the small community of Trout River lies the Gros Morne National Park (where the featured image here is taken).  If you go on past the Trout River Campsite inside the park the scenery continues! Aviking By Hoof will take you on horseback through these trails and branch off roads onContinue reading “Trail Blazers”

Trolling Along

I met these two “Guards of Elfdom” while trekking through the Wallace Brook area of Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland.  Whilst trolling for costume ideas, nature inspired me with a lot of texture and colour through these exposed patches of moss covered rocks and entangled shrubbery. The foam and sparkles of light upon the TroutContinue reading “Trolling Along”

Dreaming of Summer

Lose yourself this summer and become part of the Newfoundland wilderness.  We’ve got trails galore and the scenery is…..well amazing. Learn though LARP under the watchful eye of the Elephant’s Head mountain with several themes to choose from in our Dramatic Intent Acting Camp 6 Day packages. You are just minutes from Trout River, WoodyContinue reading “Dreaming of Summer”

Model Behaviour

In offering a free modelling contest, I wanted to make sure not to put size requirements in there (personal story is below). Healthy is different sizes for different people.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  At Aviking By Hoof we are looking for models that can become part of the clothing and costumesContinue reading “Model Behaviour”

Walk in the park

  Where Blue’s nose is pointing – the winding path leading upwards into the mountainside – is where campers staying at the Gros Morne National Park Trout River Pond campsite will head when they arrive.  Its a bit of hike and I’m eager to find baby fish today so we turned left instead on anotherContinue reading “Walk in the park”

Faerie Bells & Elfin Spells Spoiler Alert

The setting for this LARP is 900 AD, west coast of Newfoundland. Vikings have docked their larger ship in the harbour and wandered by smaller “rib” from the river to the lake-like pond guarded by an mountain in the form of an Elephant Head.   There will be only 8 initial Viking characters available, soContinue reading “Faerie Bells & Elfin Spells Spoiler Alert”

The Two Sides of You

LARP offers you more than a chance to exercise, interact with new people, get outdoors in different surroundings; it offers you a chance to get YOU back, by ironically playing someone else. I know it seems illogical that a fictitious story plot, characters that are not always even human, extravagant costumes, makeup and wigs couldContinue reading “The Two Sides of You”

Mountain Trolls

Mountain Trolls are part of Scandinavian legends, but looking at “Troll Sightings” you will notice their Mountain Trolls are often huge! These are not the “fit under your kitchen chair” variety of beings. They are more in line with Bigfoot or Sasquatch sightings.  Though human like in some ways, their distorted features and plant orContinue reading “Mountain Trolls”
