For a well-heeled damsel on a knight out…
Blog Guy, my friends and I dress up like knights in medieval costumes. Armor, swords, lances. We re-enact battles and stuff.
They wore dresses, stupid! You never heard the expression, “a damsel in dis dress?”
Thanks! And what about shoes, like stilettos for fancy occasions?
The knights were always armed, even on dates, and their armorers made shoes for the ladies. This photo below shows stylish shoes covered in chain mail.
Chain mail? You mean like, “send this letter to ten friends or you’ll have bad luck”? That’s very helpful! but WHY did the knights go on dates armed?
Before a date, damsels would tell the knights to “bring protection,” and that’s how they showed up. They weren’t exactly the brightest piles of iron on the scrapheap.
