I thought it would be interesting to post examples of interesting jobs that some of us have found ourselves in as a result of our passion for history and weaponry. For example: Armour Modeling. See the example below that I found on facebook. Hmmm. I wonder who that is?

I know it's not as lighthearted as the initial post, but I was roped into dressing up for a cancer fundraiser at my university tomorrow.
Armor doesn't have much to do with cancer research, but it certainly gets peoples attention, which is good when you're fighting for a noble cause!
So my hobby has got me a job as a walking advertisement, I guess.
I should make a tunic with a big pink ribbon on the front.

Hmmm... I wonder who that guy is..... Wink

I recently did a "How a Man Shall Be Armed" type display for a friends' 4th grade class. Still waiting for the photographs though...

Well, I teach historical European martial arts for a living at a fencing academy that has the largest number of students in the world. I'm assuming that counts? Happy
