1420! Oxonmoot 2016

Several Downers met at Oxonmoot, the annual meeting of the Tolkien Society (and friends) in Oxford. This thread is for photos and posts!

Allrighto, I feel kind of out of place posting on this thread, not having been at Oxonmoot at all (except in spirit), but since Esty insists, I bow to the moddess.

Our esteemed loremistress and Princess of Skwerlz wore an Elvish dress to the moot which was a) gorgeous and b) designed and made by herself!, and the pictorial documentation of said garment, posted to Parma Cendelion (that is, to wit, the Book of Faces), by courtesy of renowned court reporter Hookbill, provoked yours truly to break into song and compose the following verses:





Estelyn is an Elven queen,
Of her the Book of Faces telleth;
One foot in either world, she dwelleth
'Twixt Minas Tirith and Eutin.

The Barrow-Downs doth oft she grace,
The lovely Princess of the Skwerlz;
There spammers, trolls and other churls
Melt before her smiling face.

Once an elven ship her bore
To the Moot of Oxenford
Where wizard, elf and Dwarven lord
Gathered in the halls of lore.

Her gown was made of midnight blue
Adorned with many a silver star;
Than our Lady Telcontar
None was fairer, that is true!

So there.

Thank you, Lord Pitchwife! The Lady Telcontar is delighted to be the subject of such wonderful poetry!

I shall post a photo of all the Downers we could round up as soon as I get around to it.

I think he's KarlPeredhel IIRC!

Thanks for posting these, Esty.

As for myself, I ran a Dwarven beard workshop at Oxonmoot this year and it was a success.
