      Now *there's* a challenge! :)

      Definitely! Do a yahoogroups search on SCA + just
      about any craft, culture, period, modern geographical
      area, etc., etc. I have a raging case of "hobby of the
      week syndrome," so I'm on LOTS of lists! ;) Topics
      from authenticity to various string crafts to camping
      to Old Irish to herbalism to Norse topics to garb to
      natural dyes to... ;)

      Absolutely! Personally, I've only worked out one
      persona story so far, and lots of my costuming efforts
      are geared to her (10th c Irish widow living in
      Dublin's "Viking" community). But I also do a bit of
      traveling between times and cultures, depending on
      comfort (hot humid summers led me to early Roman and
      Greek styles), what catches my eye (my friend's
      Moorish tunics look *really* comfy) and new things I
      want to try (such as a late-period authentic Irish
      gown for next 12th Night).

      Okay, two questions down. What's next? ;)
