Battle of Nations!

Postby mvrofiq » 21 Jun 2012, 22:23

Hello guys!

I just watched a video on youtube, It's about historical reenactment.

Video link> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifVBhKmB ... re=related

I think it will be nice if we make something like that in taiwan, since taiwan history is rich in culture. Like chinese, Aboriginal, Japanese, Dutch and Portuguese.

So, any one interested to make something like this?

We form a team, and maybe contact the taiwan government, etc, etc...

Might be good for the tourists, but these re-enactments leave much to be desired in terms of presenting authenticity.

I don't understand why people are being so critical of the OP. Some of you need to loosen your ties and live a little.

Like the OP, I like to dress up and pretend.

I wonder if we could start with a reenactment of the First Time Sandman Got Lucky?

We'd need some period clothing; platform shoes, a rainbow poncho, bell-bottom pants . . . Tainan Cowboy might help us out with that.

But who should play the part of the severe schoolmaster? :ponder:

Would be fun, but I'm not sure where you'd get all the armor/clothing/equipment.

Yeah! I think all of us could do this if we work together,, after all, taiwan is rich in history...

We can make this event, very big so that lots of people, locals and foreigners in taiwan can join and enjoy this event.

We can feel the daily life in the old times, and we also can have some relaxation while leaving all kind of modernity..

We could ask help to the government that takes care of Cultural things, and maybe some aboriginal people.. That's great isn't it?


Furthermore, my Mandarin teacher is also interested in this things, and he can help us to contact the government...

If you can do with papier-mache armor and swords, I may be able to help. I know just the guy with the resources needed. Space, materials and connections among aboriginals. I just need a solid project brief.
