<img width=280 height=191 src="/photos/1999/bw4!.jpg" border=0 align=right>Two pics, before and after, showing what fun can be had with armor, and with a graphics editing program. :) This shows me in my blue surcoat, before I made my green one and my white one. I lovethe color of this one, but it was a bad choice of material. This was the weekend whenwe first tried all of our costume components on, to finalize it before the RenFest opened.

Wolf and Bones, posing on the 4th of July weekend. We had some fun, as youwill see below... :) Too bad I was squinting heavily due to the bright sun and the lack of glasses with which to see at that moment. :) As with the other pictures taken that day, you can seethat I'm wearing the white surcoat that I didn't use on any of thetrips to the RenFest. If I can find a good way to make a large redtemplar cross on the chest of it, this would make a fairly convincingtemplar costume.

We've finally figured out how to get some gnarly powers... (it requires the useof powerful magics, such as Paint Shop Pro). (Lightning redone in Photoshop in 2012)

Lady Wolvendove (Amanda), and Lady Darkchild (Dianna), at the PA RenFest... Amanda had just been complaining about how many peasants bowed in herpresence, and would ask permission to rise. Dianna took this as a cueto rub it in a little further. :)

Well, we finally did it. We managed to go to a Renaissance Festival in armor! Woohoo!Shaun borrowed some plate armor from Chuck (Sir Wolf), whilst the other two of uswere decked out in roughly 60 pounds of equipment each. The chainmail (14 gauge, 3/8"rings) weighed 48 pounds, plus about 5 for the helmet and approximately another 7 forthe sword, leather accessories, and pouches. Needless to say, it didn't take long beforewe were hurting. From left to right: Sir Shaun, Sir Wolf, Sir Bones (me).

While at the VA RenFest, we got approched by some kids who wanted to interview someonefor a school project they were doing on medieval weaponry. Who else but some armoredknights could answer such questions? :)

In the earlier part of the same day, I was in armor. I cheated in this one though.Look at the armor closely. The sleeves don't match the mantle, do they? The hauberkwas 16 gauge, thus reducing the weight significantly. Don't get me wrong, it was stillheavy. I was only wearing 32 pounds of chain instead of 48. :) From now on, if I weararmor to the renfests, I'll do what I did this day... Armor in the morning, then change into something else out in the parking lot sometime after lunch. :)

This was on my 4th and final excursion to the VA RenFest this year.. Only a smallgroup went this time, so I don't have a group shot of us. Here we see Wolvendove (Amanda),and Bones (me). She thought this wasn't a very good picture of her. Actually, I don'tthink it's that great of a picture of me either (which means it's probably one of the moreaccurate, but considering that I seem to look different in each picture, one can neverbe too sure). Oh well. At least the color was picked up by the camera very well. (No, we're not a couple, just half of the group that went that weekend)

I look good on the throne, don't I? :) This was taken at The Maryland Renaissance Festival(MDRF). 'Tis the King's seat, but everyone uses it as a picture-taking spot, so methinksthe King doesn't mind. Unfortunately I'm running a bit low on pictures for the 1999 fallseason at MDRF even though I've been going every weekend, since I've been focusing more on having fun and less on getting pictures.

Amazing what can happen when you get the tip too close to the flash.. It lookslike he's launching a fireball at the camera, doesn't it?

Here I am grinning in a silly manner. I'm wearing my fullgarb in this shot again, but this time with the brand-newcrushed velvet tights (I never ever thought I would weartights, but I've been talked into it). Also, you can see the new "Cat O' Ninety Tails" whip I had stuck on my belt. 'Twas a gift, and it matched perfectly.. Muahahah!! (actually, it was a gag-gift, since a friend ofmine and I were talking and both agreed that we'd neverhit someone.. However, it turned out to be a good additionto the outfit, since now I have a "weapon" that I can carryeven at the faires that don't allow weapons)</I>

This shot was taken from the edge of the White Hart Tavern atMDRF (Maryland Renaissance Festival), just shortly before thefinal Pub Sing, marking the end of the season. As the sun wassetting, it created an interesting back-lit glow in the trees,aided by the autumn color-change already underway. Click on the thumbnail image to see the full shot. The picture doesn't do it justice.

This was taken the last weekend of MDRF for the season. I had my hair down all weekend to try to help keep me warm. Funnyhow it almost makes me look like I have a larger beard; Someof my hair poofed up around my neck.. :) I haven't decided whether or not to keep the goatee, or for how long.. I suppose I can always shave it off ifI decide to.. (Picture taken by <A href="http://www.danicia.com">Danicia</A>)
