My son has grown out of his very nice leather armour and now Mommy and Daddy
find themselves designing a new set for Steppes.
I know that this seems like alot of extra work, but Derrick has been
fighting since he was 5 (we used to live in another Kingdom, but the memory
fades....*grin*) and he has had several sets of armour which have been
passed down to other children or have become loaner armour for local groups.
He has told me, that looking like one of the adult fighters makes him feel
like he has to behave at his very best, like one of the adult fighters.
Since so much of what happens on the list field involves honor and chivalry
and conducting oneself as if they were present in the middle ages, I find
myself encouraging people to take that extra step and make their children
nice garb, nice armour, medieval looking toys (even if it is converting
Barbie to a tudor or t-tunic instead of the hot pink sequins).
If our children feel like they are recreationists, and not just being drug
along by their parents, they will perhaps chose to stay and play with us
after they have grown.
Just my thoughts on the matter.
