Sometime last night or early this morning my car was stolen in
Hartford C.T. In the trunk was all of armor and weapons. I'm hoping
that the people who stole the car will try and sell the equipment,
please pass this messsage on to other list and keep your eyes open for
the following:

A stainless steel spanglhelm with brass above the eyes made by white
mountain armory.
A stainless steel heart shaped basket hilt from ironmonger.
A brown take apart 9 foot spear from mandrake/ windrose armory
A pair of guantlets from alchemy armory
A pair of stainless guantlets made by Chet with a little bit of brass
around the cuff
A pair of three piece articulated aluminium elbows from Bokalo's
armory attached to a pair of black hardened leather vambraces.
A purple coat of plates with brass rivets forming little stars,
attached to this are a pair of black hardened leather pauldrons.
A kite sheild standerd northern army/Lothar design

If anyone sees any of the above pieces please notify me so I can
notify the police.

Historically Accurate Jewelry
Hello all!
I've noticed that people interested in recreating historically accurate jewelry and beadwork are scattered to the winds, so I created pastjewels in the hopes of bringing people together to share resources, designs, news, information and skills.

This will become a place to discuss all aspects of creating historically accurate jewelry!

Stop by if you're at all interested! :)

Hopefully you can help me
Now, I'm not much when it comes tp sewing even though I can design, chose the colors and all that  (I just really suck at the application of needle and thread to cloth - unless it's like crosstich or basic embroidery)

So, my problem is that I have -most of - the fabric I need (except for a white lawn - that's a bit difficult for me to find how I want it and a good tapestry fabric for a bodice - I want something very understated in a dark color that, well, looks right)

But I really don't have a decent bodice pattern.  I'm wearing plus sizes and it's not as if those are exactly prevelent anyway but because I've also got a fairly long torso I'd have to make it.

It'll end up looking like something in court morning, probably.  At least the color scheme will (white, grey and black by preference)  and I have enough of the grey to make a hooded cloak out of it as well.

I have a few events that I'm going to and going to be working at starting in November and going to Febuary (wickedfaire.com if you want an idea of what I'll be up against)

I don't want to look out of place and I really don't want to dress like a mundane anymore when I go to Renn Faires.  At the same time I am poor and a cheapskate and well, I like the idea of wearing my own works.

SO I figured that maybe you could help me find a good place for decent fabrics online or help me find a good bodice pattern - something supporting and pretty.

Doesn't hurt to ask.

Ok, I changed the rules of the community slightly, so that I wouldn't be breaking my own rules by posting this. XD

Awhile back I got a catalog with some really nice medeival/renaissance/fantasy clothing and weapons, all at reasonable prices, so I thought I would share real quick. The website is called http://www.museumreplicas.com and they have some really nice stuff. Various Chemises for women to wear under dresses and as night clothing, lots of beautiful dresses as well, as well as plenty of clothing for the men, too. It's all very reasonably priced compared to many places, too. One outfit that can be bought from there, I've seen in the Pyramid Collection catalogues, but MR carries each peice for $10 to $20 less than PC carries them.

They also have lots of swords and daggers for anyone who likes to collect them, or for those who participate in SCA events.

Yay for patterns!
Sorry there hasn't been any entries yet. I lost my home internet connection awhile ago and wasn't able to get online anywhere else for awhile.

But, yay for patterns! Hancock Fabrics is having a sale on Simplicity patterns. All in stock patterns are only 99 cents until the 20th of Feb., 2006. I think I got 6 or 7 patterns for dresses, bellydance outfits, and a few cloaks. I'm not very good at sewing yet. I need to practice, but I have patterns now and one of these days I'll actually be able to use them. I need to get the money for a seamstress dummy, though, so I can put all the bits and peices together on something other than myself. ^_^ I don't currently have the space or the money for one, though. I can't wait to be able to make all those dresses and things and wear them to Amtgard, a medieval LARP. So far I have a dress I bought that I wear all the time, but I need more variety in my outfits.
