Atlantian Garb Challenge: "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"
Saturday, October 21
Sponsored by Lady Eilon bat Miriam
This year's theme is twofold:
1. Medieval interpretation of anything in the Potterverse or,
2. Creative use or interpretation of medieval creature art or mythological concepts from writings. You could try and make a historical representation of a
creature that could have been used for theater or masquerade. You could simply decorate your houppelande in a most heraldic way to represent some of the crazy
German heraldic beasts. Or, make your favorite mythological beast or related character that bested them come to life!
Bonus if you can blend the two.
There is no limit to the time period or culture, as long it is within the scope of the SCA. Both men and women are encouraged to participate.
The overall "winner" is the individual that is having obvious fun with the challenge: they made their own garb, the garb is period appropriate, and the garb is unique and creative in design.
