Yesterday I got to celebrate [livejournal.com profile] mythmaker999's elevation to the Order of the Laurel, the top arts award in my medieval club. As she researches and makes many things related to 16th C Flanders, many of the activities focused around creating the look and feel of peasant weddings and other celebrations from art of the time. A big part of that is the food, so I made five kinds of sausages and two kinds of mustard. Others made cheese pear, apple and strawberry tarts, waffles, breads, and jams/sauces. I blogged about my contribution here: https://siglindesarts.wordpress.com/2016/08/28/apprentice-elevation-part-one-the-food/.

I also made a new costume for the day: https://siglindesarts.wordpress.com/2016/08/28/apprentice-elevation-part-2-the-clothing/.
Alais looked lovely, though I wish I could have gotten her glasses off her before taking the picture. She didn't know I had the camera out though, and I didn't want to spoil her concentration by letting her know:
Part of her ceremony involved a dance, which looked really lovely.

It was really lovely. I had a great time with many of my good friends (some of whom I don't get to see nearly often enough). It was low-key and quiet, with only chat and some live music. Way too hot and sunny though, so several people got quite sunburned.

The photos look lovely. Wish it would have been at a different event.

It was a risky choice - had there been rain, it would have been horrid. Sorry it conflicted with your other plans.

Given how little rain we had this summer, it was fairly safe.

And your garb was beautiful

It was all linen except for the pin-on sleeves and square of fabric I used as a stomacher. They were silk. It was mostly quite comfortable, in spite of it being a very hot, sunny day with no breeze.

It still looks way too warm for me. I'm a mu'u mu'u sort of girl. :P

Yeah - me too. Most of my outfits are very unstructured.
