Today a group of my friends and I dressed up in garb and went to Hedge End Medieval Fair. There were a few small groups of re-enactors, and a couple of people demonstrating for HEMA, but honestly the best part was running around through a giant hedge maze and playing putt putt while eating ice-cream (it was a very hot day).
I lent my only other two dresses to my friends to wear (I am that go to person for kits and costumes), so I made myself a new dress out of linen, which I dyed and sewed yesterday. It was very comfy and airy.
This photo of Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour is usually attibuted to a Led Zeppelin show. The truth is this photo was taken at UK’s Knebworth Fair in 1976 which was headlined by The Rolling Stones.
This past weekend I attended Timeline Festival, one of the largest reenactment events in Victoria. The festival showcases reenactment groups from medieval knight and vikings, right up to WW2 soldiers. I honestly had no idea what to expect and didn’t really have high expectations, but it was an absolutely fantastic day.
I was involved with the HMB group which included team Havoc (NSW), team Vulture (QLD) and team Kraken (Victoria). Go Squids! I squired for my lady Knight, Jesykah aka @forgedinfoamtemperedlikesteel and John squired for her man, Josh - it was like the weirdest double date ever. Squiring was honestly harder work than I expected and it was all go from the moment we arrived, but I loved every minute of it and hanging out with the whole HMB crew, which included the group who went to Battle of the Nations as team Australia was excellent. I can’t wait to do it again!
