Essence of The White Armory

Posted in Contests,Medieval by Piper Hanriot on July 6, 2012

After what seemed like a long two weeks, stage two of the Miss TWA 2012 contest drew to a close on Monday 2 July.  Eighteen lucky ladies have now been chosen to go through to the semi-finals.

The semi-finals challenge has now began and photos from all eighteen gorgeous women will be displayed on the contest board, which is located just inside the store entrance on the right hand side (pictured above).  The deadline for submissions is Thursday 19 July 2012.  The photos will then be judged and a notice posted advising who the lucky women are who will be going through to the final.

The final of the Miss TWA 2012 contest will take place at The White Armory runway (pictured above) on Friday 3rd August at 1pm slt and the new Miss TWA will be crowned.

In the meantime, for those of you who have either not heard of The White Armory or visited the store, here are a few photos I’d like to share with you.  Above are our esteemed and awesome designers Colton Dreschler and Bee Dumpling.  Colton designs weaponry such as swords, daggers and bow/arrow sets and Bee, as most of you are aware, designs predominantly medieval clothing, however, she loves variety and we have seen styles from a various number of fashion era’s for example Victorian, the roaring 40’s and the 1960’s as well as some breathtaking fantasy apparel.

My next photo is of store manager Ida Donardson, modelling here the Seer of Dragonhenge, which was released in June.  Ida is Bee and Colton’s right hand woman.  She has been working at the store as far back as I can remember, which has to be between 4-5 years.  Ida and her colleague Musica always look stunning as they model the new releases in women’s clothing at TWA.

Also in store, you will see Arthur situated on the weapons side of the store, sword in hand.  On the 1st floor at the store is Bee’s outlet and wedding sections and as well as clothing and weaponry designed and created by Colton and Bee, upstairs on the 2nd floor you will find other vendors.  So if you are looking for accessories, then go have a look, as you might find something on this floor.

As well as fashion and weaponry, The White Armory also has a group called The Last White Knights of SL.  This is the activity part of The White Armory.  The White Knights often meet at Knightlife.  Some of the activities you can participate in are archery, jousting and sword fighting.  The White Knights also hold contests throughout the year for these activities.  The White Knights group also hold classes, so if like me you are new to these medieval sports, you can learn with the help of one of their qualified instructors.  There are also some fabulous photos hanging up in the tavern, including one of Bee with Mr Stay Pufft, the marshmallow man.  I wonder if Colton knows about her secret admirer?

The White Armory also has a cathedral and in May this year one of the White Knights, Sir Mirrandorf and his blushing bride, Tabemarie, married in the cathedral.  It was an honour to attend and be a part of their special day.  The wedding reception then took place also at The White Armory in a rather splendid looking building set in gorgeous surroundings, designed by Bee.

As you can see, The White Armory is so much more than clothing and weaponry.  I could waffle on and on, however this blog is starting to resemble a book already.  I wanted to capture the essence of The White Armory and share it with you, but don’t take my word for it.  Go and have look for yourself and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask one of us if you see us in store or alternatively pop a note card in the box located in store, next to the notice board, which also contains a couple of group gifts.  Until next time, have a good weekend.
