This weekend marked a milestone in my development as as SCAdian. For the first time, I wore clothing that was all (well …. except for my underwear) medieval in style and materials (well, again …. mostly).
These boots (by Garb the World) were surprisingly comfortable, thanks to a veteran SCAdian’s advice to put Dr. Scholl’s inserts inside the boots to provide a cushion.
I also did wear cotton socks – simply because I didn’t find time to make anything up in linen, knitted or sewn – which soaked up a lot of sweat and a fair bit of the boot dye.
Unfortunately, because of the heat and humidity, I don’t know what my final verdict is on how well my two archery outfits will work in the field. Hopefully, I will have a chance to try them out before 12th Night!
