I am historical reenactor. I reenact the 18th century French and Indian war (not a war between the french in the natives, it was the french and southern natives fighting the British)
I have just ventured into this but haven't finished anything or participated in a reenactment yet. I'm currently working on a pair of stays and a shift but I'm so slow x__x The group I'm apart of does Rev. War and I'm excited to try it out when I can finally finish sewing XD

Oh I'm not a reenactor but I do adore historical fashion! I'm making an 1898 Symington corset from the digitalized Symington Collection patterns, and I've drafted an 18th century stays pattern as well.

I've done some SASS(basically cowboy shooting) reenactments. It's pretty easy since here(in Texas) since even some fishing stores have cowboy stuff(mainly going to be hats and cowboy belts like https://gritroutdoors.com/apparel/western-wear/western-belts-buckles/ there, but what I mean is it's not hard to put together a pretty good setup :D )
Sorry for going MIA life has been wild! If any of yall are interested in getting into 1700's reenactment, I can give resources on how to get started!
I want it to be something that lives on, a lot of reenactors are getting older, and passing. It's also full of a lot of conservatives and I think there needs to be more progressive people in history telling, so we can understand the true scope of history, outside the colonizers lense.
