I CAN DO IT!

I'm nearly done on my peplos (!). Hopefully, I'll have a confirmation with regard to this weekend, in hopes that I actually have a place to wear it. It coordinates with my bog dress, as well. It won't be as period as I'd like, but the materials (linen, after a burn test) and the fact that it's hand sewn really makes me happy. I can sew. I just needed to start off simply. I just need to make a festoon and figure out how I'm keeping it on my shoulders, because, seriously, there's no way I'm wearing it with it puddled around my feet. That, and it'd look silly.

So, next is getting material for a superhumeral, a couple of under tunics, and maybe a few more over tunics. And, if I get really into it, eventually, I want to start working in silk. Sticking with geometric construction's best, at least for now.

Yay!

*happy dance*

Congratulations to the Falcon Heirs, Ostwald von Riesetoten and Kaye of Gordon!

Finals were Ostwald and Anton, best two out of three in greatsword, polearm, and sword and shield.

Semifinals were Anton vs. Thorbjorn and Valens vs. Ostwald. Both Thorbjorn and Ostwald had to win twice in order to advance.

Stolen shamelessly from the llama. (Damn, he’s too good with those thought-provoking questions.)

I wonder: If you were asked today which chivalric virtue you best represent...which one would it be, and why?

What about me?

1) What part(s) of a typical event is your most and least favorite?

Courts, on both counts. I like courts, as it's a great sum-up of the day, and it's a great way to see what the populace has been doing.

On the other hand, as was the case at Quills and Swords, a large portion of people didn't attend, and they received awards. And hearing someone called up for their AoA (or similar entry-level award) a few times and then people looking around with "who?" leaving their lips isn't something that I particularly like.

It's a part of life, yes. Doesn't mean I have to like it, though.

2) Most inspiring experience in the SCA?

If I were to sum it up at one event, it would be the three courts at Valor. If it were to be a single individual court, though, I would probably have to say [livejournal.com profile] duncanprime's Pelican ceremony or Glendour's knighting. I'm not someone who cries easily, but both ceremonies, in their beauty, caused me to get a little misty, and it inspired me to drive forward. Not necessarily for a Peerage, or for any other award, mind, but I desire to help add to the community, like these two gentles have done. And instead with words, with deeds, because we all know that talk can be cheap and tawdry in comparison to one's deeds.

3) Who is someone you admire (& why), but have never gotten to talk with or meet? (Let's keep it in the SCA)

There's a list. I swear, I have a list for everything.

Mikal the Ram.
Duchess Kolfinna is on that list.
That certain group of May Day revelers. If I could get in their heads, and see why they hadn't come up with this sooner...
Duke Cariadoc.

I'm absolutely sure there are more. Right now, though, I'm not quite awake.

4) Most embarrassing experience in the SCA? (No, I'm not talking about the most snorting experience, unless that actually embarasses you.)

I so have the story for this, then. (Every time I tell my mother this one, she cracks up.)

It was literally right after Luther and Maerwynn were crowned Prince and Princess at that particular Crown Tourney, and there was dancing out on the field. Coming relatively fresh from Bellewode that year, I was all over the dancing, and still being a relatively new dancer at that time, I looked at it as a time to relearn stuff I'd forgotten about. So, there we were on the field, dancing Black Nag. I was having some difficulty with keeping my skirts out of the way of my feet anyway, but by the time we started with Black Nag, I thought I'd mastered it.

Well, not entirely.

My foot hit a divot in the ground, and down I went. And then the rest goes like a movie.

Everything stopped. The musicians stopped. All conversations ceased. It was eerie.

I popped up with "I'm okay!" and we started over, but maaaan, was that relatively embarrassing.

5) I know you do some stuff with beads - describe it more exactly. Is this something you want to do more of in the SCA, or is it mostly just a modern thing?

I primarily bead onto some kind of thread or string - it's relatively simple, yes, but as my big focus is prayer beads, it doesn't need to be fancy. I do enjoy making jewellery, as for a while, that was my main focus, but prayer beads (and their predecessors, paternosters) really started speaking to me on a bunch of levels. Right now, I'm straddling beadwork as an SCA discipline and as a modern world one as well.

With Cathus as the RUSH Regent this year at Lilies, I've been asked to teach classes at Lilies.

The wheels are a-turning, already. And I've got a few ideas to add onto the classlist I have going.

Decoding Iconography - (This would go into detail into not only the process, but the meanings behind the individual elements. Need to email the brothers at New Syria - Skete and see if I could get some help on that. Possibly even small printed icons.)

I do probably need to teach a class on beadwork on fabric - and limit it to probably five people. Would be thrilled for this to be a make and take.

I also still want to do a paternoster class - this being a make and take, as well.

"Your First Lilies" for those who are attending Lilies for the first time - this would be a class for those relatively new to the SCA, sort of an adult Page School.
