Say cheese: reenactment style
« on: July 08, 2007, 06:49:11 PM »
The title should make it clear what this topic is about. In a recent thread, people were mentioning how they have armour, but my pleas for pics were fraught with failure. So, I wish you to post pictures of your stuff, be it armour, weapons, costumes, or any other reenactment piece. However, there is a twist: the pictures don't have to be only of you, and actually, I encourage you to post pics of stuff as well. Also, the pictures should be of stuff you made, unless it is you in your kit showing it off. I don't want pictures of stuff you bought, unless it's a picture showing off you in your persona.

Anyway, to start it off, here are some of my pictures. Unfortunately, I don't have many pictures of me in my costumes, but I do have pictures of stuff:

My Viking Helm


My Coat of Plates


I made the dagger sheath, and embellished the sword sheath.


And more pics can be found here: http://picasaweb.google.com/scholarmage/Portfolio

So, show us your stuff.

I used to have a longbow, but I snapped it.

Sorry, I don't have any.

I would like to lift this one over the others, though.

Nice stuff you've got there. :thumbsup:

Do you have a bascinet to wear with the coat of plates?

I like the thread topic, and some nice stuff you have made there.

One thing I'd like to see is a blog of sorts on the creation process, next time you plan on doing a little work start a thread and tell us all what you are doing. I for one would be interested in reading:)

I'm in the process of making another Gambeson for LARP, but it would hardly be historically correct.
Death will take you without a care for circumstance or timing; live life to the fullest without fear of death, or need to know why it chooses who it does - otherwise you are already dead.

Don't cry because it's over - smile because it happened.

Not only that, but it's horny!

Gyppomc1: Not a bad idea. However, which one should I blog? The biggest problem, IMO, is that I can't easily chronicle it with pictures, but at least I can write it up, and maybe try to borrow a camera.

At the moment I am in the process of making a houppelande and a doublet, and am soon going to make a pair of hosen, braies, a shirt, a cloak, a hat, etc.

I just finished making a suspension belt for my rapier, as well.

Anyway, I shall try.

Aqtai: no, I do not yet own a bascinet, but I plan to get/make one or a chapel de fer.

Nice idea here, James! I posted this in another thread, but I'll repost here for kicks.

Shield I made:

It's 22 inches across, weights 7 1/2 lbs, and can take a real beating.

It's made out of plywood as you can see, but the whole thing is covered with sheet metal and the boss is 16 gauge steel.

I know it's kinda heavy, but it feels good and I can wave it around easy enough.





Post pics latter of my two longbows and quiver and sword, and maybe some of the plate armor I'm making.
"Took me a long time to find you. Wasn't an easy road to travel. I'm angry and tired. Had to kill a lot of people along the way. Some of them tried to cheat me, some tried to lie. I didn't like it one bit. I feel like one more lie'd be the last bitter drop in a chalice full of sorrow. And then...then I'd do something I'd later regret. Now do you know why you can't lie to me?"

Wouldn't that be a little painful to use? Why have a metal grip? :shock:

Bah! You haxer you!  :P

Did you make it yourself?

(You will start drooling when you see my bow, though)

Not really. Granted it doesn't look very aesthetic, but it gets to job done.

Wrap that grip in leather. Please.

I will if I ever get around to seriously using it. Also going to add a carrying strap.
