Re: [SCA Newcomers] Brand new & a question!
- I hope you have fun Sara! I lucked out, my four year old son likes to play
dress up, so we used Captain Hook, Peter Pan and Robin Hood (even an Anikan
Skywalker, without the mask!) costumes a lot. But the easiest was oversized
tshirts with the ribbing cut off. I know you will have fun! Another
reminder, take warm things for sleeping at night. The first event I went to
in June it was freezing at night (90 degreess during the day!) so we wore
all the clothes we bought and were still cold. I wish I had had blanket
sleepers for the boys at night (not period I know but cold cranky children
