heh. well, i've decided to go (finally) to an SCA event next weekend that my friend james invited me to, and for two days now i've been in a flurry......noooooo, a frenzy of ebaying to try to insure that i'm properly clothed for the occasion. i fail to see why a simple undershift should cost so much...perhaps i should learn to sew & start making & selling them myself! if it were summer, i'd just wear one of my dance costumes & be done with it...but the weather is far too cold for me to do that right now. hence, the frenzy.
i think i'll end up dressing "manly" -- i.e. baggy pants, baggy shirt & tunic-y vest of some sort, for $, simplicity & comfort. damn sexism...that is a whole other tangent that i don't need to get started on right now...but does anyone really imagine that there weren't women in the dark and middle ages who dressed practically, despite the standards??? grrrr....!
