I'm pretty happy with the "pimping" I've done for LLT. I think the "right" people are talking about her, and eventually she'll get the recognition she deserves. Now I've decided to turn my attention to frederich.
In spite of the fact that he's been making armor for as long as I've know him and he's made some VERY spiff pieces, plus teaching many times at University, he has no A&S awards. I'd like to fix this. The problem, of course is that I know next to nothing about armor.
I've started the process by making sure that his child sized arms were at the Pennsic A&S display. I've also sent an e-mail to the Atlantian University addresses to see if I can get a list of the classes he's taught. We've set up a SCA Resume page for him and I've sent an e-mail to his Laurel (who lives in Texas) to see if he can give me advice of things to mention in the letter. My question is really for those of you who play in armor. Any advice? Anything else I can do to come up with ideas of what to write?
Do any of you have knowledge of things I should include?
BTW, here is an interesting picture. That is Robin from Drakenvald (the short one). The arm armor that I linked to earlier is stuff that fredrich made for her.
