Re: Lincoln Castle

Hehehehe

He'll not be able to live that 'down' for quite a while! :devil: :P



Although, I shouldn't speak..... This was only my second event and I'm still lending kit. I was the one waering the purple v gown that was too short and the red under-kirtle. I can't even look at the pictures of me! :$

Heehee

The dancing and mumming was a great success too.

Re: Loincoln Castle

Sitting in the shade watching the mass buckler ball and *rse kicking was very very exhausting :P


Sadly us Levy didn't have any bucklers, so the men nicked off with the wooden pot lids :roll: they'd have been better off without them! :angel: :D

Re: Medieval 'headscarf' and apron

Urgh!

A modern day Gok Wan is bad enough, but a medieval one.....?

Hmmm, actually, that could be quite funny....

Re: Medieval 'headscarf' and apron

It's medium long. Oh well, I'll give the ladies in my group a good challenge (and pray I don't become part of a hairdressing display lol)

Re: Medieval 'headscarf' and apron

Thank you and darn, I'm 19!

Can we get away with hairspray (applied when no public is around)? Only my hair really does have a mind of it's own and no matter how well my hair is pinned, preened and secured under a hat/scarf, I've got this dreadful feeling it'll just unravel!

Medieval 'headscarf' and apron

I have some linen so I can make a simple apron and headscarf. For the apron, I read somewhere that the best way to make it is out of a square piece of linen and a thin piece to make the ties. Obviousely, I'll hem them, but for sizing, should the apron be from the natural waist to the floor? Also, fo...
