Lindenwood MidSummer Masque
June 15, 2002

Here are some pictures of the decorations we created for the Society of Creative Anachronism's Canton of Lindenwood's Midsummer Masque Ball. I ran the event and Mistress Branwyn was in charge of creating the decorations. For many months before the event, Branwyn, myself, and Saqra would gather in Saqra's garage and paint tapestries or the standing stones.

The theme of the event was a walk on the ancient isle of Ireland and so the tapestries reflect scenes from the landscape and legends of Ireland.
