When you send me a small cheque made out to the Warwickshire Women's Refuge, Sally! :wink: (Paypal details are available).

Be nice - there is no mountain of drek on AIPON2 and phase two of the fundraising may not come off if AIPON2 is abused, so gently, gently there and let it rip here!

I expect to see the term 'fit issue' at least once, though.....

This afternoon, His Technicalitie permitting...........

£65 collected, another £15 collectable - thank you.

However donations always welcome, even after posting - cheques made out to the Warwickshire Women's Refuge, paypal details via private message - particularly as this IS a two-for-one deal, and I don't think we've yet had donations for the humiliation of His Technicalitie (worse kit than mine).

Alice can you tell me when you do it IN CAPITAL LETTERS as I'm doing so much it needs to jump out at me. I need to tell the Kentwellies who fell for my caniving plot. Donations have dried up so we need a revival of interest.

Or maybe I've milked all the suckers/wonderful, nice, generous people dry............

It's submitted.

C14th - 15th section 'Banquet Gown'.

They will delete 'malicious' posts. Put them here, so I may weep salty tears more conveniently.

Personally I feel I should have gone with the silver effect, it being more suitable to the lesser nobs.

Sadly the full glory of the demi-train is chopped off.

Frighteningly I didn't realise that they revolve the photos in the album as the album cover photo :?

Thank you! It's good fancy dress made entirely from acrylic, nylon and plastic except for the hat lining - and that only becuase I couldn't get a man-made stiffener. Not something for use in re-enactment, I hope.

It's a fabric-heads' joke, hence the thread being on "costume".

Tell me does David portray a man from the East in baggy hose ?


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I'm still trying to work out how wrapping spectacles in hessian makes them authentic!

EEEEEEVERYTING becomes authentic for ANY period if you wrap it in hessian and smear it with mud.

Everyone knows that .

(Although even the finest weight hessian does obscure the picture on the 32" plasma screen camping TV).

Mr Finney is not actally wearing 'boots' or hose. It is a full length houppelande. He is just a very short man standing on two tree stumps wrapped in hessian. That we looted. So it HAS to be authentic, innit?

NIGEL: You must be mishtaken. His name is Arnold. Arnold Finney. but you can call him 'Arno'.

ANNIE: Boots on feet out of sight, you blonde - he's not allowed interestingly long boots.

LORD ROOS - thank you, very generous of you - and for suggesting a possible phase three! Payment details PM'd to you - and to anyone else who wants to donate in phase one.
