Winn and I were invited to a medieval banquet at Winn's boss's house last night in celebration of the winter solstice. Everyone was encouraged to come in costume "or else it will befall you." So...
Winn borrowed this number from a friend of ours (he later added a sword to the belt).
I had fun making this blue velvet sheath for myself. I designed it after one like it that I saw on a medieval costume website. I bought the white Celtic chemise undergarment from Museum Replicas.

The authentic menu was extravagant, all made from scratch by Ursula Grebe from Russian cookbooks that I couldn't make sense of. The spread consisted of salmon, roast beef, and ham with a smattering of various dipping sauces with such ingredients as grapes, ginger, and garlic. There was also peas porridge, leaks, onions, and cabbage. For beverages they served cider, pomegranate juice, Scottish ale, and wine.
