Our foam fighting requires the herald to wear bright yellow. So for the Day Battle that Jon and I put on I made two tabards for us. They were pretty simple to do, and using pre-made bias tape was a stroke of brilliance.
I even talked a friend into putting together the unit symbol on her embroidery machine so we could mark them. Of course, at this point we’ll have to cover them up. I think I’ll take heavier cloth, have the new unit symbol done on it, and just sew it over this one.
*A herald is one who watches the fighting and makes sure people are following the rules. We don’t want them hit so they wear bright yellow so they are easily seen.
