        you have, and ask. Nobody is going to get upset by you asking.

          If you have a parrot, and don't teach it to say "Help, they've trapped me in the body of a parrot!" you are wasting everyone's time.

            There is a circle of material on top that sits over the veil.  Could that be interpreted as a crown? ________________________________ From: D vorah bint

              Fabric? No, not even a little. :) Circles of metal might be iffy, so ask someone with more experience/time in the SCA to advise. Circles of leather or wood might be, if they are pointed or embattled (look like castle crenellations). But a fabric circle should be just peachy!
