This asylum is for anyone who is interested in or participates in any and all forms of living history, re-enactment and re-creations of history (history has been defined here as before you were born).
Dress diaries, sewing, research, fighting tactics, event announcements, event reports, persona diaries, persona development, showing off stuff you have made that relates to our hobby, showing of photos of kit or events, asking for help, discussions about the different forms our hobby takes, how to deal with public, education, entertainment, historical recipes, funny stories from events or fairs, looking for groups etc. If it has something to do with living history, re-creation or reenactment, then it is on topic.
Those looking for help with something like a one off outfit or costume are welcome to come and ask for help, spectators who don’t want to play but want to ask questions or talk about events they have been to and enjoyed are welcome here too. People who know nothing about reenactment, but think it looks kinda cool are welcome too.
The reason this asylum is so broad as there are only a few of us on IJ interested, so a central platform is easier than many different asylums on more specific topics at this point.
It is an advertising friendly asylum, you are free to advertise anything that is on topic, such as fairs, events, or new asylums that are related to history, living history, re-enactment and/or re-creation.
