Are any of those events going on around the KC area? I managed to make it to one event several years ago (Lillies War). My oldest brother fights in the SCA for the mid-realm...the one wearing the Comedian outfit at Comicon. The Henry event is the theme for the Lillies War this year. :) The event is...

Re: Imperial Officer-to-be

Hello, If you are doing research, maybe this info will help: If you are going to make a black uniform, I recommend using trigger cloth. It has a stiff, uniform look, is machine washable and tough.

almost there....
As we discussed on the phone, I will probably have you covered on the cape, robe, chest box and cod piece. We just need to get together and make sure the pieces fit you good enough. :)

The version of the helmet I changed to ROTJ, since the shape of the top part of the helm just didnt look right to me. Anyway, I did a troop in Jefferson City yesterday for the Christmas Parade and de...
