Evesham

Evesham was hot and humid, but it went well.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time watering people – myself, john, our chamberlains, random passing re-enactors, dogs. Luckily my stock of ice mostly held out, so the water was chilled. I felt like I barely stopped drinking all weekend, yet I hardly peed at all. Both my undershifts are a bit toxic now, tbh, but over tunics don’t smell so bad because I sprayed them with vodka every night.

possibly too much information. Here, allow me to distract you with shiny things

King with Chamberlains – Sam, Lewis and James of de caversham household, who handed out chocolate coins to assorted peasants all weekend.

John, as Henry 3, posing. he did a lot of posing.


I’m posting this as a reminder to myself to make more silver vessels for display (once I get my back better, It’s been too iffy to sit at my workbench lately). I am not boasting when I say our royal display is the best, I’m simply stating fact, but I still want more bling. There cannot ever be enough bling. People often comment that the tent has an impression of overwhelming splendour with too much detail going on, this is quite flattering, but until they start actaully passing out from overwhelming splendour I won’t be satisfied.

The bling situation would be helped if the price of silver bullion would come down a bit though.

And I very much want a pair silver gemellion for the ritual washing of the royal handsies, which is a very big chunk of silver.

Then again, I think I have a few enammeled coper panels under the bench that could maybe used as mounts for another box, maybe I’ll dig them out.

Lunch table. Not very interesting, but note that I kept the flies of the homemade biscuits.
also, handy zodiac chart so you can consult the stars and find out whether or not shortbread balances your humours. (It does, because it has sugar, and sugar is very good for balancing the humours)

I need a better kneeling cushion for the church. We had to have a hire van this weekend due to car issues, so there was no trailer to be converted into a bed, so I used the lovely silk bed curtains to demarkate the church area (and made sure it was at the east end of the tent). I also need to start thinking ahead, because the lillies bought on friday were only just starting to open by Sunday.

There was also a medeival fashion show which I compered, but didn’t photograph because I was too busy talking. The models were well fed and watered when the royal tent doubled as green room. Thanks to all who participated, especially my two brave lingerie models. One of my models left his briaes lying around, if he want them back…
