to Gettysburg dressed as Queen Lucy of Narnia. Now that you're all
scratching your heads, I invite you to check out
http://history.westkingdom.org/ and click on the links
for "PreHistory" and the earliest AS listings. Ladies and gentlemen,
we the SCA were founded by college students who were permanently
brain damaged by the Gospel According to J.R.R. Tolkien and who got
their idea for a party from a Victorian Earl who was permanently
brain damaged by too many readings of "Ivanhoe." ;->
Suddenly the vampire fangs and the Tuchux and elf ears make sense,
Our roots are the reason the SCA attracts its fanciful members. Our
growth over more than thirty years are the reason that the SCA has
become, to some of us at least, more than a weekend costume party.
That's pretty cool.
Besides, you get to meet all sorts of people.

correctly. Those who wear proper clothing and have the proper deportment
for the clothing/time/area they are representing are more of a joy for me
