Argh. :( I wish I'd know about this earlier. I have been all wrapped up in
making standard tunic & pants outfits for my Lord (his first full
Pennsic), and haven't had time to really do anything I would think would
be worthy of an A&S competition. :(

I'm mostly going to be doing a slightly later-period thing for War this
year. I'm still working on the massive amounts of jewelry (mekhala,
necklaces, armlets, head pieces...) -I- think is needed to make early
period look "good" instead of, well, "slutty". 8| Hopefully by next year I
will be able to pull everything together to do it up right.
