Yes lots of people have home-made kit and no-ones going to be critical of your efforts I am sure (in fact expect lots of "how did you do that" and "can you make me an X, Y Z2 ) I've got several bits of homemade kit that see regularly use including cloaks, armour, hoods, belts and pouches. . and a very old shield and I agree that making stuff between events is half the fun!

Yes HQ is certainly on the higher end in terms of direct cost per event but the fact that it's fully catered (to the point that I never bring snacks anymore as I am never hungry enough to eat them) cannot be underplayed. Self catering at events is both costly (simple, easy to cook single portion stuff being more expensive than cooking at home usually) but more importantly eats up _loads_ of time especially when you have 20 people fighting for time on one hob/oven . It's also a very small event so you tend to get more "bang" for your buck in that you will be involved all the time with plot, encounters etc especially when compared to the larger festival style events. This is starting to sound like a salespitch . . I shall stop now (but also just mention that monstering is entirely free which isn't true at some other events). All that said I've tried other systems and HQ will still always get my time/money as I find it the best value in terms of time spent/fun had that I can get and hopefully long may that continue
