Humidity kills!

People, I am dying of the heat.  It is easily 88 degrees in my office, and humid, since the air conditioning is not working, and will not be working for the foreseeable future.

I can't think.

But Bob and I were discussing the Pennsic party over the weekend, and I'd love to see people in their most authentic stuff.  The sponsoring website is extreme costuming, after all.  And the Attack Laurels, they have permission to strip and burn anyone who doesn't meet their exacting standards.

Or something.  

What I really mean is that I'd really like to see the great things you guys have made - we can take photos, look fabulous, and make everyone who couldn't be there insanely jealous.  It will totally rock.  We could even gather the people with matching time periods together for group photos - that would be awesome.  

I'm adding a small prize for the outfit I think most embodies the "extreme" ideal (The Dean thinks this is a good idea, since it will cause unrest), and I'll give it out at the same time as the door prizes.


Off  to melt in a little puddle, now.

I wish I could go to Pennsic, but eery time I consider it I'm reminded that 80 degrees and 30% humidity is all it takes to make me bitch and threaten nudity.

Is there ANY way to justify nakedness as period?

I have *tons* of pictures of nude women from all periods.

...wait, did I just say I had a large pr0n stash? Well, it's all period. 8)

Justifying nakedness
There is an alternative - bathhouse attendant. You get to wear a wet shift. Don't remember the exact clothing but it is historically documentable and wet linen is the coolest thing to have on your body at Pennsic. Most of the time - we did have at least one cold evening and a couple of cool ones last year. Oh, and rain.

I plan to have 70 degree (f) weather. I'm sure I can arrange it. 8P

laurel party
Dear Attack Laurel,

I will be marking my 25th anniversary as a Laurel at Pennsic (actually October); could there be something at your venue to mark this occasion? C & I stuff and prizes?
