About Nemesis: I am Nemesis Erycina, better known as Eryce, and I have been involved in the SCA for around 3 years now. I have done some (very)basic sewing throughout my life, but only really began hand-sewing and embroidering when I joined. I certainly don’t consider myself a tailor or costumer by any means. I have dabbled in pretty much any art/science that I’ve been given the opportunity to try from blacksmithing and lapidary, to carpentry, weaving, leatherwork, and illumination, and I’ve enjoyed all of it! I know I should probably focus more, but I am just too fascinated by all of the amazing things our ancestors managed to create with so little technology. I believe that the work itself will be enjoyable for me on this project, but the time management and research will be a challenge. Still, I’m hopeful of my success, and very much looking forward to it!
Her Project: I plan to create an early Greek outfit to fight in, which is why I chose the modern recreation category instead of historical. I will be drawing from various paintings and sculptures of Greek warriors, Amazons, and traditional Greek women, and piecing together what I can of what a woman might have worn and what is practical for our modern sport. I want to incorporate some of my heraldry into the patterns if I can, but I am still playing with different ideas.
