G'Day...I am Teah from Ohio, and am just entering into the SCA realm.
Because I do have Rom blood in me, I have decided to acquire a
Bohemian persona, aka gypsy. My name for now, will be Magdale'na.
With me comes a troop of living Beings...my mare, in persona is a
gypsy cob and a 190 lb dog named Joseph. (I understand there is a
debate about animals being allowed on the grounds? Indeed? Can
someone inform me?)I also have a 20 year old daughter who will be
joining me but she is not a cyber hound like I am so I am the one
doing the research.
I would like some practical advise about costuming, especially in
regard to genders. In my time period (1200's or earlier, I havent
decided..it depends upon the foreced migration)the genders wore the
same clothing. But try as I might, i have not found any reference to
what kind of clothing. Its as though, the People didnt exist until
Christianity came in to their lives. Or maybe I am just not finding
the right sights.
And I would like some advice on how to know where to land. So many
Thank you and again, G'Day...
