Yesterday (nov 9th) It was finaly time for the medieval feast, arranged by my dancing company. And as this was to be my first medievel event I’ve planed and prepered my dress for weeks.
I wore my new Green Cotehardie with the Outerwear Sleeves and a new pair of white tippets.
On my head I wore my new whimple and faux braids. (read more here) And I actually managed to ge them to look like I wanted.
The feast started with some mingel, walking around and talking to the other guests (and I’ve forgot to grab my camera, bummer).
The food was really cool, and well planed – and must have taken forever to prepare…
We got: Boiled eggs in a bowl made of bread, with a bird made of butter sitting on topp.
Salmon served with hearbs on enormous plates.
Soup made of peas, serwed in desposabe “wooden” plates, and fruit stuffed with meat.
Chees, fruit-cream and peaches with nuts.
And wine pored from a guilded tower into animal-shaped wine-jugs.
But wait a minute, Im sure I’ve forgot something…
Oh yes! A grilled pig served whole, with a chicken “knight”on top.
Omg, look at that little chicken rinding the pig!
He actually wears a helmet, shield and sword.
My amusment faded fast when they started to cut it up…Yuk…
After dinner it was time for some dancing.
In a dancing break I grabbed my sister and some friends and we snaped some quick photos in the basment.
My sister in a dress I finished just hours befor the feast.
And a friend from my dancgroup, who also made her outfit herself.
Then I got he whole “sewing group” togheter for some photos. During the autumn we have all taken a medieval sewing class, held by the “medieval all-knowing” Karin (front left). It’s been so much fun learning authenticity, and to watch everybodys cloths coming togheter. (Even though I’ve heard we have a few cheeters in the group, bying theire clothes…)
Doing the “14th century everyday pose”.
And the mandetory “Jump shoot”.
I’ve had so much fun at the feast – eating, dancing and meeting new interesting people.
But most of all I liked wearing and feeling pretty in my dress and braids. Looks like there will be some medieval fairs to get o this summer…
