Konstantia, Gold Falcon Principal Herald, is sponsoring a Heraldic Garb contest and fashion show to take place at Agamemnon and Gwen’s Coronation in July in Lost Moor.
The contest is the best use of heraldry in one’s garb, whether it be personal heraldry, kingdom heraldry, badges, etc. This promises to be fun, and it’s a great way to get in touch with your own heraldry as your persona would have.
There is a need for judges and prizes. If you can contribute, please let Konstantia know via email! Also, please tell your local groups!

2. The garment must have heraldry represented on it, whether that is a badge, personal heraldry, or kingdom heraldry. The heraldry does not have to be registered, however, it is encouraged.
3. Group entries, yes, are accepted and encouraged.
4. Documentation is not required, but definitely encouraged. (and may score you bonus points!)
