First year in garb
« on: September 25, 2014, 08:26:27 PM »
Hello,

   My name is Heidi, and this will be my 3rd year at CRF. I live really close and I really enjoy it ;D. I am planning to go in "garb" 8) (and in character) for the first time this year.

I am making garb for myself and my husband, and will be posting more in the sewing forum soon.

I would love to get to know some others who will be there.

Would anyone like to make acquaintance with a newbie playtron? :)

Lady Heidi, it will be my first visit to your shire, but I have been in garb for many years. I'd be delighted to meet you. We will be there in October - the weekend of the 18th & 19th, and I'll be in my gold gown - the sleeves and forepart (underskirt) are interchangeable, so no guesses on what colour I will be in, but look for the tall noble couple, and come by and say hi! We will wear our RF pins, and a small wooden maple leaf (Canadians!)

When will you be there, Heidi? It's our third year in the shire as well, and we'll be up the weekend of October 11th. It'll be three of us: a young couple (that's me and my fiance) in garb, and then my grandma in mundanes. I'm ginger and wear mostly crimson/maroon and my fiance will probably wear a red cape. If you see us, let us know! :D

Thank you for your responses.  ;D I will definitely look for you all those weekends if I am there. If all goes as planned, I will be wearing my upper class gown. It is hunter green ( silk look) with gold forepart and mauve sleeves. I am about 5'8 with brownish red hair depending on the light.

 Will update if I finish my middle class or peasant garb.

I live only 14 miles/22.5 kilometers away- so still debating how often I want to go/season tickets possibly.

I look forward to meeting up with others who would love to "play 16th century" with me/us.

Anyone else? This section of the forum seems so bare.

If you can afford it, get season passes! I'm down in Charleston, so it's a 3 hour ride for me, or I'd be there a lot more often. The fact that I'm getting married this year one of the faire weekends really cuts down on opportunities too. :P

This will be my 3rd or 4th year going and I'll be there this weekend and probably every weekend. Thank you season pass :)  I'm either a pirate in blue or a pirate in black.  I know, very descriptive.

Not sure if we will make it this year, but I hope.
You don't have to be a great man.  Just be a man, and let history make it's judgements.
