Welcome! Wow! A 180 piece banner, that is so awesome. I don't think I could have all the patience needed for it. Let us know how it turns out, it sounds like a very fabulous banner!

I like Vampires too, so that´s no problem for me hehehe!^^
In fact,there are many different costumes and several versions, making all of them would take years (or last eternally as you mentioned),due to my Roleplay activities I got a favour for the Elves, though I gotta admit their robes aren´t easy to make.
Regarding your advise about time : I´m currently in a battle with a 180 pieces Fantasy Banner (and I can´t curse somebody,it´s my own!XD) and I made some high complex Flags and Banners before, so that tought me patience somehow, but wise to mention it I think.
Regarding posting my own work: how should this be done to avoid troubles?
Regarding my Banner I´d like to hear some opinions if those edition could match Elven or the Elfes style (the Elven Star is included)
My first project (which is planned to start within spring time) will be a full or 3/4 circle cape, with a matching long robe for it.
Go raibh maith agat (this is Irish,not Sindarin,I know^^)(Thank you very much),

- You´re getting used to be patient if you make Personal Banners or high complex Flags alike New Zealand, Tibet,USA or Brazil, so it´s about practice somehow^^
it´s yet about 50h of construction time+ 20h of making,and some more will happen, the insanity goes on^^
The Banner contains a Phoenix and an Elven Star (both will be applied or either stitched by a company)and a Sea Turtle, Turtle and Elven star will be fimbrated by ornamental frames, thought about frames in Elven style but found no frame patterns, currently it´s planned to do straight frames with fleur de lis.
Will try to upload pictures of it soon.
