I have been kicking around entering the Middle Kingdom A&S pentathlon for a couple years. I have planned and plotted and generally spun my wheels. This year I’m doing it, because I finally have ideas for my weak categories that I can actually complete and won’t look like crap.
The plan so far:
Division I: Performing Arts and Letters
Bardic Recitation–Something from Le Morte D’Arthur or some other 15th C poetry, in the original language, if possible.
Division II: Textile and Needle Arts
Costume: Children (I know you could fall over from the shock)
Costume: 1451-1600 c.e. –full late 15th C outfit from the chemise to the overgown, sans accessories (again, you could fall over from the shock)
Division III: Technological Sciences
Wood Construction – Joinery — Prie-dieu
Division IV: Studio Arts and Sciences
Miscellaneous Studio Arts and Sciences–paternoster
Division V: Domestic Arts and Sciences
Cooking–I haven’t decided between single or multiple dishes
Miscellaneous Domestic Arts and Sciences–dolls
