Calling something twee means its too cutesy-poo even for the SCA. Things that are unbearably kitsch or camp can be described as a little too twee. This description have been expanded to include anything that doesn't really fit with one's persona or is blatantly anachronistic.

Examples of things that are a little too twee include some canting arms, certain subtleties at feast, and dressing smalls in armour.

The word "Twee" likely comes from Terry Pratchett's novel Hogfather, in which a governess threatens to break her cynically cute young charge's arm if she is caught being "twee" again.
