MCM: Duel at Blood Creek


This isn’t your traditional Man Candy Monday, but I wanted to lavish some Frock Flicks love on the delightful short film, Duel at Blood Creek (2010) by Leo Burton. It’s been out a few years, so those of you who have seen it know that it is serious eyecandy, on top of being hysterically funny — for those of you who haven’t seen it, you’re in for a wonderful treat. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy 14 minutes of handsome men in costume doing what they do best.

You deserve it.

Oh, and it’s a little NSFW. Might wanna use the headphones.

    I had forgotten just how funny it was. Rather Monty Python-esque. The swordwork was better for the sabreurs than for the smallsworders. Costumes were great, even down to the M-notch lapels on one and the double waistcoats on another. Not too surprisingly, I saw it first on the HEMA FB page.
