Lady Alexandria Biener

Location: St Florian de la Riviera, Lochac

Category/Level: Modern Recreationist/Beginner

About Alexandria: I’ve been in the SCA for the past 5 years and in that time I’ve been made the St Florian Arts and Sciences officer and won one championship for Arts and Sciences. I don’t sew often, if I do I tend to make either dolls clothes or more modern clothing (1960s). In the SCA I do bookbinding and heavy fighting as well as embroidery, leatherworking, and illumination. My SCA persona is a 16th Century Landsknetch, so it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that my company could have travelled to Russia. I’m looking forwards to the challenge that making a costume like this will entail.

Her Project: I’m planning on making a 16th Century Russian court ensemble. I’m basing this piece off of a painting of Anastasia Romanovna, first wife of Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible). Her clothes indicate the high court clothing that I’ve been looking to make. It’s an outfit I’ve wanted to make for a while, high court Russian were heavily headed and carried fair amounts of gold and silver in their clothes as well as accessories. I intend to include parts of my heraldry in both my clothes and accessories.

Category/Level: Historically Focused/Advanced (Display Only)

About Constanzia : My name is Duquessa Constanzia and I’m a laurel from Lochac. I joined the SCA in the early 90s. I’m one of the patrons of the Iberian clothing prize. My persona is Spanish and I love capsule wardrobes so I could not resist this challenge! It’s so lovely to participate from the antipodes! I hope that by showing some of the interesting clothing from Spain, that others may find it interesting too.

Her Project: I’m still deciding which Iberian outfit I want. Do I want northern spanish with the crazy hats and choupines? Do I want mid c16th Spanish with crazy sleeves and choupines? I definately want choupines…. let’s start there!

Marget die Goldschmiedin

Location: St Florian de la Riviere, Lochac

Category/Level: Modern Recreationist/Intermediate

About Marget : I have been in the sca on and off since 1989, and I have been sewing many of my own clothes both medieval and mundane for over 40 years, as well as sewing I am a retired jeweller. I chose this project because it will challenge me I wanted to create something more than a plain dress, doing all the beading which is something I have only been playing with for a few years, My SCA persona is German, and I have always enjoyed the arts and sciences side of the society, I have cooked quite a few feasts, do a bit of leatherwork and illumination and hope to tie all these interests into my outfit.

Her Project: I am planning to replicate the dress in the portrait Markgrafin Elisabeth von Baden from 1525, Germany, there will be a chemise, underdress, overdress and coif, as well as making the jewellery shown and a small painted box to store the jewellery in, and finally a pair of shoes, even though you cannot see them in the picture, everyone wore shoes, and I am basing them off extant shoes of the period. The outfit is for the next crown event we will be able to attend, and portrays a lady, i have wanted to create a beaded outfit for a while and this is the perfect motivation to take it from paper to reality,
