This morning I attended the SCA event Keep Calm and Ceilidh On. It rocked! I did a shift guarding the Royalty Room with Lothar. I had never done that before. While I was standing guard, I took a bunch of photos.
Ginny Beatty and Lothar, outside the Royalty Room:
Sights around the heavy armored list:
The knight in the green turban is Ustad of Camp Ev Korku (House of Dread, which makes sense once you see his dreadlocks!):
I caught various interesting personages while standing guard:
More folk of interest:
I finally got off my guard shift and made it over to the rapier list, where I spied my friends Uilleag Balbhan and Slany Bean Uillic (mka Dan and Sheryl Barringer), as well as HRM King Cellach and Baroness Allegra of Flaming Gryphon.
I also played my purple harp a bit. I wish that I had gotten some photos of the people working so hard in the kitchen preparing the evening’s Feast, because they were a rapt and appreciative audience for my harp playing. As always at these events, once I leave I realize how very many people’s pictures I did NOT take. Oh well! 😛
I only spent the morning at the event, although I enjoyed it most heartily. As I was packing up my things in the merchant area, I got a chance to speak with my neighbor, who turned out to be “Chainmail Chica,” otherwise known as Sarah Fore. She was as lovely as her work, some of which I managed to photograph:
