One of the most badass things ever.
Ever felt that you live a depressive life? Take up historical reenactment, and I assure you, your life will be filled with unforgettable experiences!
Not to mention you will have a masculinity overdose.
(Capitalist advertisement aside, everyone who knows me must be aware by now that I will recommend trying reenactment at least once in your lives whenever I am given the opportunity ))) )
Damsels love knights in shiny armour.
(And horny dragons love them too, if you buy into that)
