Photos: Kotama Bouabane “This is How You Die”

Kotama Bouabane is a local artist and educator (OCAD & York) working on a new series titled, “This is how you die”. Kotama turned to Underworld LARP in order find players to work with – capturing them pretending to die or be wounded in battle. He creates portraits in open landscapes, as well as close-up images of characters’ faces lying prone on the ground.

Working with both photo and video media, Kotama has taken portraits at an anime convention in Montreal that you can see on his website under “Meisai” here. He is also working with Bicolline LARP in Quebec.

Here are a selection of images that he shot with a Human Ranger (Brandon) and the Savar Matriarch Mal’nen (Jocelyn).

If you are interested in being a part of Kotama’s series, please contact him at


Event: Drawing Down the Moon


The winter snows have fled with the slowly warming weather. to Jericho comes the spring with green grass and new life but also the threat of war. Berphaunt and Suvant now march upon each other in a dangerous game of brinkmanship and Jericho finds itself the middle ground.

No matter the outcome, Jericho will be forever changed.

Shifting behind the political hostilities, an ancient evil returns, unnoticed. Because Jericho needs more enemies right now.

Please join us for our first full weekend event of the 2013 season. Our shaper team is incredible this year and we are happy to note that they are both eager and excited to weave their tales for you.

As a side note, we haven’t had a chance to do a real build day before the event. As such we’ll tone down random attacks on Friday night to give camps the chance to rebuild walls and clear dead-fall.
