- Jun 10, 2007Ack, I never formally introduced myself.
Hi, all. My name is Christine Mc Carver. I live in Elf Sea of
Ansteorra. My persona that I'm building is a Moravian of mid 14th
century. I'm interested in, oh bunches of stuff. Here's some things I
think are more point-edly SCA oriented.
Calligraphy, eastern and western. Learning illumination, though much
more difficult than water color.
Sewing - garb making. Designing patterns based off of drawings and
making them universal. (In real life, I am a seamstress for hire.
Hence the business name Mercenary Seamstress as well as an
architectural engineering student.)
Mask making - paper mache masks of all sorts - Noh, masquerade,
comedie de l'arte (I can never spell that correctly yet I studied
French for five years.) I hurl them against the wall to test durability.
Languages - French, Czech, Latin, Japanese, Gaelic, Mexican (necessity)
Paper mache lacquered furniture.
Beading - jewelery, head ornaments, garments
Cobbling - leather, canvas, began with 3/4 point shoes, then made own
lasts for period shoes.
Corsetry - with or without busks, stays, bodices
site assembly and cooking. Not much of a bard - too chicken.
Researching hard to find things. CAMPING And ethnic studies. and
Gothic architecture. . *sighs at the intricate loveliness*
Book binding and paper making.
All of which started before the SCA. Oddly enough.
I learned about the SCA last winter through a bunch of Vampire
LARPers, paid my dues mid-may before my first event; which I didn't
need to make any garb for had I not wanted to be more "ethnically"
appropriate. Even had my own tent and camp stove from my hiking days.
So, I'm a newbie. I have been taken in by a group known as the
Miscreants, though I've yet to "officially" join them. I am currently
finishing my coat and head dress whilst working on my background info.
