" Course the tie is about 20years too modern, but it was the only red tie that I have (I have since bought a red ready-made bow tie that is 'period').

Hi,

I posted this in another thread, and thought better of it and posted here ... this is during Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento, and I am reenacting as a miner-turned-apprentice-lather worker... I was using my old leather scraps to make IDs for kid's backpacks (I was very popular at that).

But the thing I wanted to show was that I had bought this work shirt pattern from October Country of the The Possibles Shop ... can't remember ... anyway, the local seamstress made me several shirts from the pattern, and this is one .... it is a square shirt that was 'easy to make' (this coming from a seamstress, so take with a grain of salt).

Perhaps this shows a sharper view.
Joann of Laughing Moon found a salesman's sample of nineteenth century trousers and this pattern is based on them. I'll try wool for the next pair.

GAF Grand Muster 2017


« Reply #257 on: September 14, 2016, 07:20:07 am »

Thought I'd try and revive this thread...

I've had the great honor to meet and shoot with a few folks in this thread..RC John, Del, SC Slim to name a few.  I've been inspired by their outfits.  

Here's some of mine...
The first is from my first year in SASS at the Last Stand at Thunder River.  The match was based on "The Magnificent Seven".  I dressed as a mexican peasant.  Excuse the soxes and modern sandles.  I didn't have time to make any sandals.

The second pic is from a Christmas Parde.  The lovely red-headed lady is my favorite wife.  My leather accoutrements were made by yours truly.  The pants aren't exactly PC....Dickies dungaries with belt loops, but I cover them with the gun belt...haven't figured out how to hide the cell phone pocket on the leg just yet!

The third and forth are from GAF Grand Muster 2016.  The vest in the flag pole pic is wool with a cordaroy back....wish it was shorter.

I enjoy the creative part of making the outfits.  All are a work in progress, and I'm working towards more authenticity.

Hey GT,
Meant to reply and life got in the way.   Love the pics.  Looking great.  I would love to see the paddles come out and this get shocked back to life.  So hopefully more will follow suit.  As it stands, I am a poor cowpoke, so I only have one outfit.  Must work on that.

Troy, I just removed the cell phone pocket. One of the pairs of white pants I wore at the GAF Muster started life as painters pants from Wal Mart, I just removed all the extra pockets and hammer loops, had to open up the side seams to remove them, then re-sew. Helps that the pants were new, so there's no "fade marks" to show where they were. Only problem with them, they're still cut to ride too low, with the Foreign Legion outfit, had to wear the blue sash too low, to cover the top of the pants.

My newest impression...an Apache.

All except the shirt are made by yours truly...breeches, breech clout, belt, holster, headband, and moccasins.  I enjoy this aspect as much as the shooting and fellowship!

Nice, Troy.
But, the wedding band looks a bit odd.  Wink
I can no longer take mine off unless the finger goes with it.  Shocked

Thanks Quickfire, and Slim.  Quickfire, you are modest in your comment! 

I'll eventually accent the outfit with some silver jewelry.  My mother has a squash blossom necklace that she is giving to me at Christmas.  Also, I've found some one-size fits all rings that would cover the wedding band, but I too must, by choice, display mine!

Lookin' good, Troy! But I think more important than darkening your hair, would be darkening you!

M2, how's Ottawa Creek Bill doing? he's been absent from the forum for several years.
