Right! So this year's Krigslive is over, and I got to show off my new costume which I (miraculously) managed to finish most of, and then some.
Here's the list of what I ended up with:
• New Hosen
• New Wams
• New Shirt
• New Arming Cap
• New 'Stockings'
• Small pouch (Fit well under the codpiece
• Playing Dice
• Game of Glückhaus (awesome time-killer!)
• Jewelry (lots and lots of jewelry!)
For next year I'll set the bar a bit lower for my own projects, as I've promised a friend I'll sew his Wams and Hosen in return for a part of a tent we're going to buy together. We're hoping to make it 'in-game' inside as well, so we'll be looking into making some furniture.
I also made a lot of new friends, which leads me to my second point of this journal: I've been recruited for a relatively new, but very high-end re-enactment group called Frie Rostocker Fähnlein, dealing with Landsknechts. They told me they wanted me for my facial hair, but I believe my work might have had something to do with it..
So, to summarise, expect steel weaponry and hand-sewn, vegetable-dyed landsknecht-awesomeness in the (probably not so near) future.
