Saturday, September 3rd, visiting the Medieval Festival in Oslo.
Crusaders n., pl. of "crusader"
1. Name of a group of geeks who specialized in making music and animated demos on the Commodore Amiga computer in the late twentieth century, and also spawned the Great Computer Gathering commonly known as The Gathering which is a yearly event in The Great Hall Of The Viking Ship in Hamar, Norway, every Easter.
2. Bunch of guys who launched an intifada to reclaim The Holy Land from the Muslims in the 11th to 13th century, yet even at their early time were surprisingly enough not the inventors of religious warfare.
I think he must be one of the latter. Great costume though :)
All in all, I was impressed with the amount of effort and spirit that the participants had put into this festival. Walking around there I wished I'd had something more suitable to wear for the occasion. I felt like a tourist in time, dressed catastrophically wrong. But they didn't seem to mind ;)
