Community Cast Video Day 43

Today’s video looks at some of my favorite hair things.

A couple notes: In the video, I stumble over the words sutler and merchant. Sutlers are a very specific entity. The vast majority of people selling at events are merchants, not sutlers. A sutler is a portral, an interpretation rather than just a seller. There are some well done sutler impressions from what I understand. I do not have experience with them because they are a military entity, not a civilian one. My semi-sarcastic use of the word sutler was ill mannered.

Since I talked about trying to recreate the hair combs with the jet glass, I should have mentioned I wear reproductions to events, not originals, and why. It is as simple as originals get lost and originals get damaged. Years, many years, ago, I had a custom piece made by a nice, local jeweler who specializes in estate jewelry. It was lovely. It cost a week’s sallary. I was so excited to wear it. I lost it the first day I wore it. I have not worn an expensive or original piece to an event since.

  2. I would love to learn more about hair nets, combs, and containers. My hair bits live in a round metal cookie tin.
