The page does mention that people will be given a warning first (and
knowing the SCA, there would be more than one warning before action would
be taken) ...
But it does mention that fact ... as well as the fact that gentles should
simply remind people that that isn't the game we are playing ...
That means that someone showing up in a fur bikini and a cloak would
probably be told by a few passersby that she isn't wearing period
clothes, probably knowing the goodnaturedness of SCAdians someone might
even offer to loan her a T-Tunic and some Poofy Pants. If she
continued to wear it she would probably happen along an 'official
enforcer' who would notice her, tell her she isn't wearing pre-17th
century garb, and give her a warning, telling her to find some other
clothes to wear ...
Only if then, like say the next day the 'official enforcers' see her
AGAIN, and she is STILL wearing the fur bikini, would she be given the 24
hr notice to appear in front of Seneschals Court.
At least, that is the way that I read the web page, perhaps others
implied differently, but this is how I read it, which at least I don't
see a problem with (yet).
And this still allows people to become 'educated' as was described above
(and maybe speeds up the process)
