I am a Warder of the Company of the Bronze Ring, and I was a cadet to Warder Uadahlrich von Sassmannshausen. I have one East Kingdom cadet: Sorcha of Carolingia. I have three cadets back in other Kingdoms: Andreas von Meissen (Ansteorra), Lothair von Bremmen (Middle), and Saorla MacArdyle (Inactive).  I used to be known as the "Ringstalker" in my earlier days as I stalked down the Iron Ring frequently, and held it four times. I am a 'retired' member of Wednesday Company because I now fight with the East Kingdom. :)

I am a member of the Order of the Evergreen - Grant of Arms for A&S - for costuming, scribal arts, and rapier. I focus primarily on 16th century clothing and I love the Renaissance quite a bit. I do blackworking and other embroidery, and I take a lot of fun in embellishing garb. I wear men's and women's garb with frequency - mostly men's garb for fencing. I enjoy making scrolls for people I know, and I enjoy a lot of pen and ink work to make scrolls look like 16th century prints. I used to do a lot of tablet weaving, and worked up to Egyptian diagonals, but I do not do that much anymore. I won Middle Kingdom Divisional Arts & Sciences Championship in 2008 with entries for embroidery, clothing construction, and knitting (I made woolen flatcaps much like on the Mary Rose).

Introduction

Hello! I am Baroness Brighid! I like to meet people, so please say hello! I moved here from the Middle Kingdom in early 2010, and have sworn my fealty to fight with the East! :)

I am a courtier, a fencer, a royal court herald (I don't do book heraldry), a costumer, an archer, a scribe, a painter, a weaver, a terrible bard, an autocrat, and I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things.

I am an Apprentice to Master Philippe de Lyon of the Middle Kingdom.
I am a Protoge of Master Vhorlin Or' Gwig of the Middle Kingdom.

My registered name, which I do not use, is Bríghid inghean Chonmhaoil. I prefer Brighid MacCumhal.
I was made a Baroness of the Middle Kingdom Court of Dag & Annelyse.

Persona

I don't really have a persona, per se. I like the early 16th century. I love everything about the Renaissance. I love to play the role of the Courtier, and I am very much a Royalist (which is why I enjoy being a herald is it gives the opportunity for such things)!

I tend to dress in Renaissance men's clothing for fencing, and women's clothing for court, though I do occasionally wear 16th c Turkish because it's fun and what my best friend also does. :)

My SCA 'family' - Uadahlrich, Andreas, Lothair, and Peter - are Landskenechts, so I am the token non-Landskenecht in the group.

Arts & Sciences

I focus primarily on 16th century clothing and I love the Renaissance quite a bit. I tend to only make what I can wear or use in practicality at an event.

My main arts, which I am happy to teach classes in should there be interest:

  • Tailoring of garments in 16th Century Europe: I wear and research both Men's & Women's garments, primarily in England, Italy, Sweden, and Germany. I do a lot of hand-sewing on visible seams.
  • Embroidery & Embellishments: primarily blackwork embroidery, stem-stitch embroidery, couching of metal embroidery, etc.
  • Scribal Arts: focusing on composition and drawing, also I do calligraphy and illumination for scrolls. I prefer to do scrolls for people I know, and enjoy doing pen & ink style work that looks like 16th Century prints.
  • Tablet Weaving: I used to be really involved with this, but am not as much anymore. I prefer doing Egyptian diagonals.
  • Painting, Drawing, Printmaking with woodblocks, etc.

Arts I have dabbled in:

  • Knitting & Felting (I made felted flatcaps like on the Mary Rose)
  • Courtly Dance (if I can ever remember the steps)
  • Bardic (if I can ever remember the words without a book)
  • Leatherworking (for outfit accessories, like my coronet)
  • Spinning fibers

I won Middle Kingdom Divisional Arts & Sciences Championship in 2008 with entries for embroidery, clothing construction, and knitting (I made woolen flatcaps much like on the Mary Rose).

I am a member of the Order of the Evergreen - Grant of Arms for A&S - for costuming, scribal arts, and rapier.
