new to group
- Hi we are new to this group but not to the sca, used to play but
took a sabatical and want to come back as Japanese. We are in
Artemisia if anybody is from there. We would like to play in the
Muromachi period and have found some names that we like and hope
that they are period. Tbe name that he likes is Yamashiro Nagamitsu
and the one that I like is Kanamore Yamabukime. The first question
is if we want to play as married do our surnames have to match? Also
I have my AoA with my other persona and was wondering how that
transfers and what the appropriate title would be. We would
appreciate any help that we can get especially with clothes and
armor. I have some material but I am pretty sure that it is not
period now that I have done some research and have red material for
hakamas (already cut out) that I now realize that I do not need :(
and the other material we have has small geometric patterns on it?
Any good links for how to make armor that would work for the sca and
be quick and relatively inexpensive to start (working our way into
good stuff to start) He wants to be heavy and I would love to be
his archer (any links for that) Sorry I know this is a lot we are
both just so excited and would love any help that can be offered.

- My husband and I are new to this group, but not the
sca we used to play as Italian and Norse, We are
wanting to start playing as Japanese in the Muromachi
time period and have found names that we both like
that seem to fit with the time period. Mine is
Kanamore Yamabukime and his is Yamashiro Nagamitsu.
We also need help with a lot of things so I will just
start listing them off. We need help with clothing
and fabric, I have picked some up and have cut out
hakamas and started putting them together for me and
have found out that they are not period for women in
the era we want to play, would they wear them at any
time? Also the material I have has small repeating
geometric patterns will this work. We are both former
rapier fighters but want to move into the heavy combat
and archery aspects (both heavy and regular archery)
and would love for some links to help with armor. we
made me a tanto and wakasachi(spelling) yesterday
since I primarily want to do archery. Also are there
any references for women fighting in japan during this
time? Two more question and I promise I will stop we
are both very excited to be getting back into the sca
with persona's we both want to have. If we want to be
married in the sca would we both have to have the same
surname and I have my AoA, how do titles work, I found
the sight that gave all of the rankings but would all
of that come before the name? Any help would be

Greetings from Solveig! Welcome to the mailing list! You should
probably also check out:
for plans for rough-and-ready kit to help get yourselves started.
Incidentally, the question of hakama is more varied than people may
tell you. What period are you interested in? With a -me style female
name, I would guess either Nara or Heian. If that is the case, then
you get to wear not one, but two pairs of hakama at the same time.
Incidentally, you should check out the Costume Museum in Kyoto:
Here you can visually "shop" for clothing which interests you.
