No Roman for Me

So I am going to Coronation. It was sort of a last minute decision, since we thought we could not do it. Then, things changed so I could make it, and there I go.

I am really looking forward to it, and my only regret is that ballistabob won't be able to make it. I will be driving Friday afternoon with the greta_k, and meeting later on at the Holiday Inn Express with geoffreyapclwyd and pirategirleee, who cannot leave as early as the Greta and I.

And although I would have loved to wear Roman or Byzantine garb, there is simply no time for that. It is not that it would be difficult, it is that at the stage of the game I don't want to slap something together in a hurry that might or might not look good.

Plus, I am fighting rapier.

Therefore, the Belphoebe will show up in her 16th Century duds, although she would very much have liked to participate in the Roman extravaganza that looks and sounds so much fun.

I have to say, I do have a nifty linen chiton that I made for Pennsic, escoffion and all. However, it was made out of the lightest material and meant to serve as cool and breezy garb for the hot days of War, not for the chilly kind of day that has been forecasted for next Saturday. I will pack it up just in case, but I believe that I will remain in my 16th Century for the entirety of the day.

But I will be there, and it will be fun.

Hope to see you guys!
