      thanks for all the tips :) I have no time to reply now (first day at
      university and already loaded in work... sigh)

      but you almost had it right... it would be more like Bienvenue dans
      la SCA :) (because SCA is not a place but an organism)

      nice french tought ! :D

      It's been a while since I actually had to write in French. I speak
      a little French - just enough to get me into trouble if truth be
      told. It's been 22 years since I graduated from high school and
      that's where I learned it.)

      > You could always do 2 persona's. I have 2. The first is my main
      persona, Lady Elizabeta Maria dei Medici, SSG. She is a member of
      the Medici family from Florence, however she was raised in France
      and now lives in England. She is a widow, only heir to her father's
      fortune and very happy to be alone and choose her own way in life.
      She likes it that way. She lives in 1350.
      > The second persona doesn't really have a name except Maria. She
      is a 15th century Italian woman, who basically makes her way through
      life by doing whatever she has to. She's done lots of stuff. She's
      kind of dangerous and she's never been caught. She's a widow
      several times over and all her husbands have died of natural causes
      (as far as anyone can tell at least). She's never actually been
      registered, but I have this really nice English ren pattern and love
      the pattern so I made the dress. The second persona actually
      started out as my first persona when I started out in the SCA, but
      then I discovered the ease of 14th century Italian surcoats and ...
      well ... that's where Elizabeta came from.

      > Personally I hate wearing dresses also. I wear them for the SCA,
      but instead of wearing pantyhose (especially in the summer in
      Houston, TX) I wear a pair of biking shorts under the dresses or
      skirts. That's something you might want to consider if the reason
      for not wearing dresses or skirts is the same as mine (my thighs rub
      together and my legs get irritated). I have found that biking
      shorts or longer biking pants (capri's or ankle length) work really
