To War!

To War!

It’s been a bit quiet around here, hasn’t it? It’s because I went to war! The week of March 15-22 was Gulf Wars, one of the big inter-kingdom wars that takes place in the US every year. It’s been about 14 years since I went to a war (my very first SCA event was Pennsic 30, MANY years ago), and it was an experience. It was the first time I’d been away from Poppet for more than a weekend, and the first time in a long time that I’d been away from Edmund for that long. Add to that a couple instances of overheating (it was the warmest war in years, according to my friends) and you have a recipe for a very intense experience. Not necessarily bad, I do want to go again, but I have some things I plan on changing next year.

I took my camera, but didn’t get as many pictures as I had thought I would. But here are some highlights! I also had the delightful opportunity to get professional portraits taken by my friend Madalena in some of my garb. As soon as those are finished, I’ll share them (I got a preview recently, which you can see here, and they’re gonna be BEAUTIFUL).
