West Kingdom 12th Night...

Shamelessly stolen from trystbat

West Kingdom 12th Night A.S. 42
The Royalty of the West
and the The Barony of Westermark
cordially invite you to attend

Grand Coronation Festivities
January 4th-6th, A.S. 42 (2008)
Doubletree Hotel San Jose


I'm trying to figure out why West 12th Night is "Grand Coronation Festivities" but that's not a big deal.

Since the only historical we've got at the moment that fits is Japanese, I expect that we're going to look at hooking up with the Japanese crowd (and it's another excuse to get more Japanese done for furcon in a timely fashion).

You can wear Japanese if you wanted. :)

They coronate someone, I guess. Dunno -- last year, I peeked into the ceremonial stuff & couldn't see over everyone's heads. You're about 6 miles taller than me, so maybe you could tell what's going on.

Yeah, there's Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Middle-Eastern too, just pre-1600.

Oh, I've been doing SCA for over 15 years (my last ex- makes his living sewing Renaissance and Medieval costume at faires, conventions and SCA events). I just haven't really done any since I moved out here.

That's what I was guessing, but I don't know the Kingdom's schedule, and was surprised not to see more information about the coronation itself on the event page.

FYI, Coronations in the West are 12th night (early Jan), Beltane (May day) and August 1st (brain don't allow me to remember that name right now). Other than the fact it's a coronation, not much will be known until the crown is decided. And there won't be much in the way of formalities outside the ceremony itself. I know some other Kingdoms get fussy about such things, but the West is usually laid back. But if you've got Elizabethans or other fine non-outdoor wear, this is the SCA event to show them off.
