Though saki is common, she might want to consider some plum wine. About 15
years ago I had considered a Japanese persona. I vaguely remember coming
across a ceremony of someone elevating into a high ranking position. There
was something akin to a vigil. It was a time of preparation of mind, body
and spirit. I gleaned through it and pretty much forgot most of it cause I
changed my mind. So I am not 100% sure of the details but I think there was
a ritual bath and something about the clothing and specific colors. That
this was not for a military elevation of rank.
If she can find them, she could serve as a novalty Umeboshi or
Umezuke/pickled plums or apricots.
A friend with a Japanese persona is getting Laureled at Twelfth Night.
(snip) She is not having an SCA vigil, which she thinks is not appropriate
for Pelicans or Laurels anyway, and definitely not for her persona.
