hard core Monday, Jul 30 2007 

Organizer’s list:

Shave before the events (2-3 days max).
– If possible, prefer these items over other clothes:
breechclouth (brayet)
wool leggings (mitasses)
white shirt (chemise blanche)
oxhide shoes (souliers de boeufs)
red tuque or kerchief (tuque rouge ou mouchoir)
– Try not to wear any combinations of hats (ex. tricorn and
kerchiefs, …).

This was sent in an e-mail from my captain, with specific instructions from the organizer’s of the Crown Point Grand Encampment event next weekend. I don’t know why it ammused me so, I just thought it was so odd that they actually specified that you must shave 2-3 days before the event. Well I don’t know about the men, but I had every intention of shaving that Friday morning. Sorry Captain, but I will be all nice and smooth…what will my punishment be?

Having the sailor on a ship….why didn’t I think of that? LOL 🙂 Thank you Kiel for the suggestion. How does it look now guys? The background still looks a little busy…but it is water…idk. Feedback?


what about now? Saturday, Jul 14 2007 

I’m still not thrilled with the background….but I feel I might be heading in the right direction?
