Show here your Celtic warrior impression

Guess what? Yes it is a shameless rip off from our roman and greek hosts, but as an idea it has merits. So why not show off and in the meantime motivate the rest of us to follow?

So come one and all show your legs, your check tunics, your well crafted shields.

I have a few photos of our Celtic friends, but they are not me, so I will have to contact them and see if they want to post photos.

Here are some of us at Lafe in 2005. I'm on the left with the blue shield. Didn't get a whole lot of pictures in 2006 and missed this year....

My first items were a torc and a spatha. A friend of mine (former Viking re-enactor) suggested that was all I needed to re-enact a Celtic warrior... :mrgreen:

Fortunately, I never acted upon his suggestion 8)

Yikes!

Hmmm...where did you get that head?
And if we're on that subject, anyone know where you can get nice fake severed hands?

No late Roman re-enactment is complete without spears with a severed head and severed hands on it... :wink:

That, and a little plaque saying "VSVRPATOR"... :twisted:

The Chief brought that out. You can find that sort of thing on eBay. Look for movie props or simply "severed head"! He was gorey.

Ack!! My eyes, they burn! Confusedhock: lol

Are they really really starkers? Isn't that rather... "unprotected"?

Why do they not wear armour? Is there some special or spiritual reason?

I think it was gennerally as a show of bravery, in the respect that "I don't need armour, i'll chop your head off anyway" or that sort of thing.
