Any re-enactors?
« on: July 24, 2020, 05:31:14 am »
I got into historical re-enactment a couple of years ago, and while there's no way I'd want to fight anyone naked, I figured I'd ask.
Are there any other historical re-enactors here, or even just history enthusiasts? I do Viking age re-enactment, and for the most part everyone else in my group kicks my arse since they've nearly all been at it way longer than I have.

Not right up re-enactment, but I consider myself a history enthusiast with a secret longing for the knowledge and skills to create historically accurate artefacts.

I have these reoccurring thoughts of wanting to try out primitive bushcraft skills and live like a caveman. But there is also the viking longship I want to build. But at the core of things, I would want to have a proper workshop and a forge and try out making various things and experiment.  :thinking:

'Primitive' skills can honestly be quite useful, at least potentially. I tried making a stone axehead over quarantine, but I don't think I had the right kinds of rock since most of my attempts broke long before I could finish them.
Yeah, that's true, but if that's your calling, you can certainly work towards it. I'd love to do blacksmithing one day, but for now I'll just have to settle for sewing :')

I use to do Amtgard (https://amtgard.com/) and had a blast with it but stopped doing it just cause of time...at the time. Now I just couldn't get back into it even if I wanted to.

My minor in college was Mythological Historian though, so I do love history and either watch tons of history stuff or a few various other things on tv. Lately it's been about Stalin.

That sounds interesting. I think I prefer steel, but padded weapons seem like something you could reasonably get away with for nude martials arts lol.
Ooh, that's cool. Honestly most of my knowledge of history and mythology is from Youtube or general internet reading, I need to get some books some day.

It'd be a hell of a good way to test out how functional my soft kit is

@Hrafn what do you have in this "soft kit"?

Sorry, I think that's a bit of a re-enactorism. Soft kit refers mostly to casual/civilian clothes, and hard kit is mostly combat gear i.e weapons and armour

Sounds like a Fight Club quote...

I'd fight Gandhi.

Good answer.

How about you?

Thank you for the clarification. Can you tell what do you have in your soft kit?  :smiley:

A few tunics, mostly either wool or cotton (linen is too expensive or hard to find), some pants, leg wraps, shoes, a hood/cowl, a cloak, a kaftan, a leather belt and pouch, and, if I can historically justify it, a Mongolian-style robe or two

My wife and I used to do reenacting for 1670s Charles Towne. I got to fire cannons, dress in period clothing and all that. I'd love to be part of a Norse village or something like you said.

It would be awesome if you, your wife, and the other reenacters would post pics of your costumes.
