I have a confession to make….. I have never been to an 18th century reenactment before. D:
Fortunately, my living in Williamsburg has changed that. My debut was Under the Redcoat at Colonial Williamsburg, just last weekend. It was wonderful.

For those of you who don’t know what UtR is, I’ll give you a quick overview. British. Invade. Williamsburg. And let me tell you, there was a LOT of red.

I spent my weekend walking about with Eliza and befriending quite a few redcoats and fellow costume bloggers. They were very pleasant and great fun; teaching us some new dice and card games, as well as letting us try some of their homemade meade, which was very delicious.

That was the only picture taken of me (that I know of) at the event. I hope to trim the new hat I bought (it’s the one I’m wearing) once I get hold of some nice stuff to work with.
I had a great time and hope to attend it next year too 🙂
