Contests (more to come)
(Mistress Morgan writes)
In order to get going on the Traditional Montengarde Twelfth Night Contest,
which (very traditionally) includes a “Novice” focus – but in order also to
make sure others do not feel left out, here’s my proposal:
1) Novice Costume Contest
In this instance, entrants are considered “novices” if they have been in
the SCA for one year or less (dating from Montengarde Twelfth Night of
2003), and do not have a professional or semi-professional background in
costuming (you are on your honour here to determine your own fitness for
Documentation not required, but encouraged. This will be “on body” but
need not be worn by the Entrant/maker, although they must be on site and
attend the judging, in order to be asked questions. Periodness, general
knowledge and technical skill will be scored, and completeness (the
accessories such as shoes, pouch, belt, etc inclusions – whether
made/bought/found/gifted – ) will also be factored in.
2) Medieval Undergarments (ie: chemises, corsets…)
This will be divided into three (3) categories:
a) Novice: has been costuming for less than one year, although you may
have been in the SCA for longer. “Costuming” is defined as more than just a
generic polyester t-tunic thrown together for your first events and then
worn forever after. Novices may NOT have entered any costumes in previous
competitions, or have a professional or semi-professional costuming
background. (see above)
Documentation STRONGLY recommended.
b) Intermediate: has made four (or less) costumes/costume elements,
considers themselves to have at least basic sewing skills, and has not
entered costumes in more than Shire or Baronial level costuming
a) Advanced: has made more than four costumes, considers themselves as
“intermediate” or better seamstress/er, and has entered costumes in
Principality or Kingdom level contests
This will be “off body” (unless the entrant/maker does not mind being pawed
by the judges) and will focus on accuracy, technical expertise and
appropriate materials/completeness – ie: if it was normally embroidered,
then yours should be, but – conversely – if the item was known to never be
embellished, you should not have added an ahistorical element.
Again, the entrants are on their honour to determine their fitness to a
category: be fair, be realistic and be confident in your abilities!
I will need judges (volunteers please email me privately) and the
donation of suitable prizes is requested.
I am proposing that the undergarment portion of this be run during the
afternoon, and that the “Novice Costuming” portion take place early in the
evening (hopefully prior to the feast.) I will be working with the autocrats
to arrange times and hopefully letting everyone know in good time, so as to
make it easy to arrange scheduling.
The format for this year’s rapier tourney will be a modified London Masters.
What is this you ask? You’re in luck, I’m about to give a couple tid-bits
The first round will be 5 single elimination tourneys. each having a
restriction on the weapon forms to use (single sword, sword/dagger,
sword/baton, sword/cloak, sword/buckler) So practice up on all your forms.
The second round will be based on the first … 😀
All locals are required to have the following to enter: subscription to the
Mouthpiece, banner appropriate to your persona, tourney tile.
Visiting combatants are required to have fun.
