8450New-ish One Here
- Jun 2, 2006Greetings,
I joined the SCA last October and attended my first camping event last
weekend (Sapphire). I learned two lessons. First, if you are
bothered by heat, do not use garb from areas that never or hardly ever
reach above 75-80, especially if it will be near 90 and muggy!
Secondly, SCA event camping is SO not like regualr camping, you know
in the woods, dark and quiet.
We had a great time but had to cut our stay short because of the heat
even while wearing linen underdress and a tunic dress. Can anyone
recomend a type of garb for ladies that is not multiple layers and
originated for areas as mentioned above? I thought about middle
eastern, but my concern is that I am such a Northern Europe type of
lass (redish hair, fair skin, and freckles!), that it really does not
suit me. Any advice would be welcome.
Yours In Service,
