  1. Gasparilla Invasion Parade of Pirates | Gasparilla, FL

    The Knight Parade in Ybor is February 9th. Ore fun in my opinion than the more publicized day parade.
  2. Gasparilla Invasion Parade of Pirates | Gasparilla, FL

    Day parade or Knight Parade? Both?
  3. Peter the Grat's Salor outfit - specifically the hat.

    WOW! Great find! That answers a lot of questions I had - like how do you keep a band or ribbon on one of these. I am not certain that this hat at the Hermitage is any different than the one in the reference I posted. They both are knit, tall and have a brim.
  4. Some interesting pictures.

    Cornelis van Wieringen, Battle of Gibralter 1607, 1622, detail_02 I really like looking at the difference between sailors and musketeers. — at Het Scheepvaartmuseum.
  5. The Boots We Wear (On Bucket Boots)

    Duplesis was adamant that his drawings were perfect. While they're were "boots" in his drawings, don't forget there were also guys in shoes and the boots do not resemble riding / bucket boots. Duplesis work is one of a few if not the only reference to anything other than the aforementioned Spanish Sea Boots. I personally believe that bucket boots on GAOP pirates might have been a manifestation of the mid 1600's when bucket boots were fashionable and worn by officer / soldiers, mounted troops and the public. This topic will probably live on forever!
  6. Boots

    A recent visit to the Maritime Museum in Amsterdam pretty much ended the shoes or no shoes in the rigging debate for me.... Abraham Storck, 1687 and earlier than GAOP but... Cornelis van Wieringen, Battle of Gibralter 1607, 1622

    Why thanks - I am humbled...
  8. Not the best idea ever thought up...

    How many times has someone been shot accidentally and the shooter says, "I thought it was unloaded." To me, and this is my opinion, a real gun is a real gun and a functioning flinter is no different than a glock in that respect. I was taught never to point a gun at anyone unless you intend to shoot them. Now, different cultures have different practices.... I just returned from an event in Holland. One of my fellow musketeers from Spain was standing behind me, matchlock primed and loaded with powder, pan cover closed with the burning match cord in the serpentine.... Oh, and the muzzle was right behind my grape. Yep. That is there "ready" for the second line. I changed positions and asked that they not put the match in the serpentine until right before firing. Sheesh!
