So, last week, Thursday to Sunday was Plague Wars, the online substitute for the biggest camping event in Drachenwald (SCA Kingdom covering Europe, Israel and South Africa) and one of the most important things that I do every year. It gives me joy and relaxation, and usually plenty of time to go swimming. Here and here you can see photos from Double Wars 2019.
At was so lovely to see all these lovely people, to hang out in break out rooms for the after court party (I got quite drunk and happy on Saturday).
It als gave me the opportunity to dress up. On Thursday evening I wore a new hand sewn cotton Italian 15th century gamurra.
I also did hairtaping on non braided hair for the first time in over a decade. Unfortunately my hair isn't as long as I would like it to be for this style.
Fru Ingeborg Svantepolksdotter and Fru Jehane Arbonne rocking the 1250-1325 style which I also wear most of the time.
The rest of Friday was spent making a scroll for the blank scroll competition. I hadn't done any work with gold in over a year, sop it wasn't perfect, but good enough to get quite a lot of votes.
And this year I got a pallet collar outside our block of flats and there I have, among other things, wild garlic.
Wearing my Italian c. 1300 cotton gown for cooking, and picking wild garlic.
