The summer months are upon us, it’s hot outside, and folks want to dress lightly. There are also many Roman-themed parties at Pennsic. I have been doing a lot of teaching, in person and over Facebook. I always start by asking: what is you goal?
I have noticed that most SCA people fall into two categories, with regard to what I’m teaching:
(1) The ones who want to portray historically accurate Greek, Roman, or Celtic
(2) Those that don’t care about historically accurate, but want to be close, while still looking beautiful/sexy/rich/etc.
I don’t find fault with EITHER viewpoint. I love trying out other time periods, and won’t invest a lot of money when I just want a passable outfit.
