It is not every day that you get teleported back into the Dark Ages. This past Sunday I went to Norfolk with Andrea Thorn and Florian Platzmann. Their passion is dressing up in Dark Age clothes and doing live roleplaying in an imaginary world not too different from what our own must have been. The difference being that in their world gods exist, and some gifted individuals wield magical powers. We drove up to Norfolk in the afternoon, and arrived at Hunstanton beach before sunset.
Putting on Dark Age costumes is serious business, and not done in just a couple of minutes. There are multiple layers of clothes and armour, but it is worth the effort as you can hopefully see from the photos.
After sunset we went and had dinner at a nice Chinese restaurant before heading back to Cambridge. It got a bit late, but I’d say the photos were worth the trouble. Great fun! If you have some friends that like to dress up then you have the first ingredients for good photos. Andrea and Florian have gone to a lot of trouble to make their outfits look very authentic which shows in the photos.
