Mattea started playing with the SCA in 2015. Her first event was Barmaids and she had a lot of fun. She took a medival history course in high school and someone from the SCA came in. When her and her family moved to Phoenix they decided to look for something to do and looked up the SCA to see what they had to offer.
Mattea likes to do fiber arts, including sewing, embroidery, and weaving. In fact she is part of the Elizabethan Sweatshop that provides period, authentic garb to the local populace, but they specialize in special occasions. She recently doing illumination and has a lot of experience with period printing.
Mattea is an apprentice and belted to Mistress Aoife inghean Oisín for arts and sciences. She hopes to follow the path of the laurel, but also really enjoys autocrating. She would potentially like to be an Estrella War Main.
What's in a Name
Mattea Locatelli was originally derived from an Italian origins. It is pronounced (Ma-tea-ah). Her given name is a period version of her mundane last name.
Mattea was originally going to do late period, Italian, 15-16 century, but just really likes the 14th century cotehardies. She also enjoys time travel and has some Viking/Norman, Roman, and a little Italian outfits as well.
Mattea has always loved archery and while she hasn't done much in the SCA yet, she wants to. She picked an Octopus because it's her very favorite animal and it would be unique among devices. She also has a large affinity for the color purple.
