SCA name: Lady Isabel Westrose (Barony of Ruantallan, Crown Principality of Tir Mara, East Kingdom)
I am a double-major costume studies/history student. I have been doing art since I can remember, and spent 4 years at a specialized art high school before deciding that conceptual art is not my future and heading off to do my bachelor of arts in costume studies and history. I love my program
I am a Lady in the SCA, and for most of the year I hail from the Barony of Ruantallan in the Kingdom of the East - although I spend my summers in Ealdormere.
I do costume from a lot of different eras, including medieval (12thC and 14thC so far), Tudor, and Victorian. I'm starting to get into 18thC now, too, and I also love steampunk. So there will be a wide variety of stuff on here, as I get around to making things and posting them
I love mythology, and I do lots of art drawing from the myths of faerie circles and courts and such, as well as versions of Norse figures and scenes from the Arthurian cycles. I am inspired by people like Brian Froud and Alan Lee, and spend a lot of my time imagining strange new fey beings. I also draw the characters from the novel I've been writing for far too long.
I have also pursued wildlife photography since I was very young, and I would never go on a trip without a camera in hand. I will not be posting most of my stuff here, however, as I generally distrust the interwebs and am afraid that people would use it without permission. I work hard to get all my photos, and as much as I would like to share them, the internet is not a safe medium.
School is very busy, so updates will be fairly slow, but I'm hoping to put stuff up here as I finish it; both costume work and regular art.
