English Reinactors

Ran into this downtown ceremony by accident yesterday and was very impressed.  Lots of care to see that things were done accurately (or at least it appeared accurate to me.  Damn well done, if it wasn't accurate.) Lots of attention to detail in the downtown ceremony.  Amazing variety of costume and people.  "Native Americans" in full war paint were particularly impressive and (again) based on what pictures etc I've seen, were very accurate.

Lots of people there to watch as well.

Thanks and congrats to all.

Attention to detail seems to epitomize those who recreate and act out history, with controlled OCD almost a necessary personality characteristic for the individuals.  
A group gathering is like a gathering of surfers - a subculture with their own jargon and specific interests, almost to the exclusion of the rest of their lives.

I applaud them all - a choice piece of living history.

Good to see you new nic - and I admire your sig. After I was alerted to this bumrejects site I fired off an e-mail to you but it bounced. I had neglected to update your e-mail addy in all my address files.  Sorry 'bout that, as we collectively have been trying to find the old gang.

Speaking of "old gang":  Anyone got a bead on Dunrobin?  She came, signed in, and left!   Crying or Very sad

'allo, 'allo Smile

Flu for 2 weeks, emergency replacement of pipes with 400 year old roots in front yard, etc. etc....   just now feeling non-feverish enough to poke about. Great to see everyone!
