At the end of this week's episode of @fossandcrafts I invite people to send us pictures of their historical crafts/experimental archaeology/historical reenactments/etc so I figured I'd start it out. Here are some of the craft projects I talked about in the episode!

We'll start with me spinning on a Turkish drop spindle

Roman two-beam upright loom. It is almost ready to weave on, but my heddle jacks are too short to create a sufficient shed, so i have to extend them before I can start weaving.


My Roman persona, Amelia Clara, for the SCA including a nodus (the hairstyle popularized by the empress Livia) based off of a Janet Stephens tutorial


Regency attire with @cwebber (I made both costumes ... though we couldn't find appropriate stockings for Chris's breeches)


Steampunk with @cwebber and my mom (You can tell Chris's costume is basically the same base level as the Regency attire but with some embellishment)

@mlemweb @fossandcrafts @cwebber is that a ray gun or a tiny dirigible he's holding?
Clockwork wings are so cool!

@shapr @fossandcrafts @cwebber

We're all holding cheap toy guns that we got from thrift stores and upcycled into steampunk ray guns :)

Thank you! I was rather fond of those wings! (except that I kept getting stuck on other people's costumes as I passed them in the hallway)

@mlemweb @fossandcrafts @cwebber I shall henceforth envision you always at ease in your library in such proper attire

@joeyh @fossandcrafts @cwebber

Man ... now I really want to do a photo shoot in the library wearing regency attire
