Earlier plans were that I was going to do a period dyeing demo, but that didn't work out. But we still went, my hubby in a lovely blue waist coat, ruffled shirt, blue knee pants, and a cocked hat, with period style glasses. He wears his hair down, growing it out so he can wear it in a period style pony tail, since he absolutely refuses to wear a wig, and it looks vaguely like Benjamin Franklin in style.
Thus the title of this post. In our round-about walk, he was called a cowboy by a little boy of about 3, a pirate ship by a boy probably about the same age, a Colonial by a 10 year old boy who loves history (Yay!) and Ben Franklin by a 20 something woman.
This tickled him to know end. We actually reenact the late Rev-War/early Federalist period, ca. 1785-1795. But it was still fun. If he were on LJ, I would make him a Ben Franklin Pirate Ship Colonial Cowboy user pic! LOL
