Not getting a whole lot better the next year. New white shirt which I don't like much better. I actually think it came from a Fredrick's of Hollywood catalog... I am also sporting the most uncomfortable pair of bracers that you could imagine. I got them at the NYRF and they are very heavy, thick leather. I'm surprised my hands didn't fall of wearing them for the whole day. A cheap "Toledo" sword and wedding gift, pewter mug complete the outfit.

Same outfit down at the faire. Added a giant drinking horn to the mix. Oh, and don't forget the Museum Replica "Cavalier Boots". They had a sole that was at least 1/4" thick. The one good thing is the mace. Got that mail-order from a company in California call the Brass Axe and Rose. It is a beautiful toy.
