I´m a bad reenactor. And with bad I mean lazy. But I´m amazingly good with the internet part of reenacting: pinterest, looking for inspiration, Reading other reenactors blogs, looking at fabric, jewelry and other pretty things I want to buy.
Although, a couple of times a year I get busy and create something, mostly an entire outfit. So I´m quite effective when I get to it.
So my hopes with this blog is to show that you don´t have to work with your costumes 24-7 to get a decent wardrobe og historical clothing! And hopefully it will spur me to make a bit more garb!
I mostly use my garb on event with the two associations I’m in. The first joined and the one I’m most engaged in is called SCA. It’s a world wide organization where we re-enact the years 600-1600. Sweden in called Nordmark and Stockholm is Holmrike.
The other associations I’m a member of is Proknekt, which re-enacts 16th century german soldiers, landsknechts.
