When you want to do something special with friends, it can take on a life of its own. the ROGK Tabards and Gown project fits this bill.
What is ROGK?
ROGK stands for The Royal Order of Germanic Knights. It all started when one of our members found this simple tabard of black and gold/yellow. The guys then realized how cool the tabards looked with the flags from Eternal Arms! Here they are in parade.
Designing the Emblem
The more they talked, the more it became apparent that this sigil belonged with the tabard. This is when I stepped in and offered to see about making a crest. In the meantime, the guys went to work deciding on what to be called.
After everyone approved of the design, I continued to develop the look. I added a sash design and included everyone’s names.
Time for a Gown
Of course, while I could wear a tabard – you know I do sometimes *wink*, I decided that this time I wanted to be girly. So a new gown was in order. I was a little short on time, so I used the underskirt from the Quilted Gown. The bodice sports the same logo along with custom trim and lots of beads!
I will be making a separate under skirt with custom quilting to match this gown in the future.
Royal Order of Germanic Knights - Debut
The group decided to meet together at the Bedford Library Medieval Festival event. Our attendance was a huge success! Folks loved the look and our pictures below show how much fun we had!
