Arts & Science Contest - Accessories!

Greetings from the Scholar of Tir Righ!

The clothes make the man.... but the accessories complete the outfit!


I am sponsoring a contest, with a due date of Tir Righ Investiture, Feb 17, 2018.

The entry requirements shall be:
-must be a pre 1600 accessory to an outfit, not a main garment. So socks, gloves, hats are ok, while pants, shirts, tunics or dresses are not.
-one item or set of items (set of buttons, pair of socks, etc)
-construction of garment items will be primarily textiles (cloth or garment leather). So a leather jerkin is good, leather armour not good.
-non-garment items can be constructed of any material. Examples might include a fan or jewelry.
-the item will be displayed on Saturday at the event, so that all may see your project and read your documentation

-up to 1000 words (not including bibliography)
-up to 20 pictures (max 10 construction method, max 10 period examples).


Entering an Arts & Science contest can be intimidating, if your first time entry will be judged against experts with a great deal of experience. I would like to encourage participation from all levels of experience, so will break the contest into three levels:

There will be three "levels" of entry
Beginner: You have never entered an A&S contest before.
Experienced: You have entered at least one contest.
Expert / Open: If you have won a Branch Championship, or you are a Laurel, you must enter at this level. You may also enter the Expert category if you want the challenge of competing against Champions and Laurels!

Please send me a message to express your intent to enter by Feb 1st so that judges can be sought. If you are not wanting to enter, but would like to judge, please contact me!

I look forward to seeing your cool stuff! Accessories make the difference between your kit looking like a "costume", or looking like the clothes of a person living in history.

Yours in Service,
Conall, Baron of Seagirt
Scholar of Tir Righ


As A&S Craftsman for the Shire of Hartwood I am offering an A&S/Largess competion. Competitors are asked to provide 4 items; three of which will go to largess with the forth going into the prize basket for the winner. Overall winner will be decided by populas vote. Please ensure you tag all your items with name and Shire/Barony.

As well there will be Archery at Investiture! We will run a short 20 yard tournament with some of favorite shoots over the last couple of years. Helm shoots, sheep raiders, andVikings.
