Re: [SCA Newcomers] Dressing above my class?
- the only sl's that we really do request people go but
is the following.. if you don't have an AOA then no
metal circlet over a 1/4 of an inch if you have an aoa
you can go up too a 12 inch.. no laurel leaves on it
period if you are not a member for the laurel.
no think gold chains, no spurs, no white, red, yellow,
or green belts unless you have earned the rights to
those are the basics..
