Make, Take, Donate Largess!

            This contest involves making three items of the SAME thing in honor of our new queen’s third reign.  Yes, two shall go into the Queen’s Basket of Largess, and the third shall go to another contest entrant as a prize for adding to the bounty of our realm. 

            While it does NOT need to be a holy hand grenade, three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four and fve shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Six is right out.

            These items may be made from any material and may be used as a decoration or a practical purpose…or both.  Now, you may use different colors (such as a fabric bag), you may put different creatures/words/figures on your three items as well.   At the end of the day, Queen Adelheit will select the method of prize distribution.

Sparkles and Bling!

            What is royalty without their shineys?  Impress our new Queen…word on the street says she LOVES bling!  

            This contest will show off a piece of your finest bling, be it beading, metalworking, glasswork, ceramics, sewing, embroidery, knitting, etc.  Documentation is expected but not strict or restrictive.  Show us how you came upon your idea and what sources you followed.  People love learning and seeing history come to life!

Make a Marotte!

            A wha…..??  A Fool’s Wand!  Coronation celebrations begin on the Silliest Day of the Year!  Carnivalesque Fools abounded in Germany and elsewhere.  A Jester’s Scepter was an integral part of their costume and job.

            Create one for Atlantia’s Court…go traditional with a face, decorate it with ribbons and bells, make it do tricks….bring out your best stick trickery and perchance your wand will win the day!

Going to the Dogs!

            To honor our newly crowned king, this contest plays on his heraldry. This contest is open to anything dog-related!  An embroidered collar?  A K-9 medallion?  A dog tug toy?  Period plausible dog treats?  It’s a dog’s world and we’re just living in it! 

SCA Museum

Her Majesty (to be) has also requested a tent to be devoted as an SCA Museum…bring your favorite bit of  the SCA memorabilia to place out for everyone to enjoy!  A short note (or a long story) to accompany it would be awesome!  (And yes, your memories WILL be going home with you — this is a display only!)
