"Let us go forth a while, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our closed rooms...
The game of ball is glorious."

You Might Be A Reenactor If...

...you spend a lovely summer afternoon in the fabric store hunting for the perfect lace to trim your new bloomers.

...your swords are more polished than your silverware.

...you're insulted if someone refers to your garb as a "costume".

...you know what a bodice chiller is.

...you own and use a bodice chiller.

...you hoard golden dollar coins all year in anticipation of Fest.

...you know what a baldric is.

...you own and use a baldric.

...you'd rather have the Museum Replicas catalog than the Victoria's Secret catalog.

...you secretly (or not-so-secretly) long to own a cannon, trebuchet, catapult and/or tall ship.
