It was actually a really fun event. There was TONS of food. It wasn't just desserts. There was soup, bread, cheeses, noodles, basically, food. Lots of food. You did NOT go hungry at this event and that was a good thing.
I did finish the mid 16th c gown but didn't wear it because I wasn't sure how big the site was. Trying to rummage around with a hoop skirt isn't easy where there is much room. So I wore my hand sewn red t-tunic and a green skirt under it. It still looked festive.
Asruyn was there which I was so happy about. She only gets to come to events when she's on break from college so I was surprised to see her. She was glad to see me as well since I was one of the very people she knew. orlacarey
and Lady Tirzah did an amazing job with the food. Really y'all, it was good. orlacarey
gave me a lovely little bag of really really good hard candy.
During court, St. Nicolas made his appearance for all the little kids. Everyone sang Rudolph the red nose reindeer (not period but hey, the kids know it!). The table behind me was being rude but oh well...not about to let a few drunks ruin it for the rest of us.
There was a lot of singing before court and I knew a lot of the carols. It was a random group of singers but they were really good. The acoustics of the building could have been better but it was fine.
So, all and all, I had a great time and it's definitely an event I'd like to go to next year.
