Rock On

Home again, home again

Survived another Estrella War, was quite the fun weekend. It was definitely cold (maybe not Northshields cold which I'm heard is extreme) but it was still pretty chilly, especially when one journeys to the privy at 3am with nothing but a cloak on.
I got to spend a lot of time with friends, drank around the fire, ate like a horse and was lucky to have a beautiful companion share my bed and help warm things up. Don't have to ask for more than that to keep this Caradoc happy. One of these years I might actually be productive and take a class even, but somehow I keep getting distracted, I blame the demon rum.
I'm home now after the long, draining drive, and snacking a bit. I got lots of sun, so the face is a bit pink but should get back to normal in a day or three. It's LATE, but I need to get some of the truck unpacked and still shower the camp smell off before bed. Wish me luck.

Estrella Pics

Insomnia kicked in with the shower, so I copied some pictures on to the 'puter, and uploaded a few to peruse. Didn't take too many at all, so here's a few that were worth the effort. (Edited: LJ Upload/Post kinda lamed the quality, retrying)

Some wonderful people
Always nice to have a camp of lovely ladies and gents.

Post-Estrella Post Frenzy

Because two posts already in 24 hours is totally out of character for me, why not a third.

So among other things I did this weekend I got to spend a good bit of time looking at women in lovely bodices and corsets.

That's the SCA for you, nothing better. But even more so than usual thanks to my old friend Robin, who chose to share booth space with Beverly a purveyor of lovely ladies finery, including corsets and the like.

Here is one that she sold.
New Garb

This one however went unsold this weekend

But for those that like to got a little more modern, I saw today (back in the *REAL* world) this wonderful example of corset and cosplay crossover.
Star Trek:TNG Inspired Corset on Etsy.com. I know there's probably a few Trek fanboys on my F-list that'll appreciate this one.

I wonder if the new Star Trek film will have taken any similar turns in the costume department, guess I might actually have to go watch the teaser trailers.
