In which I really, really geek out
But I do have news to share: It's payday, and I just bought a longbow!
I am so deliriously excited about this. Seriously. Bring on the SCA jokes, 'cause I really don't care. Besides, as I've recently been (re-)learning, SCA-types know some shit.
For example, wanna know how to make duello gloves? Look here for a set of directions, complete with citations and diagrams.
Got rusted armor? Help is available!
A few other gems I've found lately (just don't ask, okay?):
--Want to find out how to reconstruct clothes found on the bog people of northern Europe? Check this out.
--Did you, like me, want to grow up to be Tom Baker's incarnation of Doctor Who? Well, here's your chance to at least imitate him sartorially.
--Need big hair fast? Just look here!
And, by the way, if any of you are interested in equipping a dungeon, here's your source. (By the way, some of the reconstructed clothing available at that site is seriously drool-worthy.)
