I'm a member of two groups and both present to the public in very different ways, but then often have different event-types as well. One group does the organised table display, twined with interactive activities going on around camp (such as weaving or spinning) and a (usually roped off) cooking are...

All sorts of interesting things going on in this one; the young lady on the left is wearing a sleeveless gown over what looks like a white kirtle (and our 1480s tied 'rabbit' cap). The chap in the foreground who's wearing grey also seems to be wearing a red coif under his hat. Interesting stuff. :)...

I think I have, I'll just go check (although Im fairly sure that its a European thing anyway) As for the pourpoint under doublet, I just don't know- it all goes back to the grand old argument as to whether one's hose should be pointed to the pourpoint (with doublet on top) or to the doublet directly...

I'm no fighter myself but I was going to say the same as Fox- theres several pictures of the sleeves just sewn to the main body by the top third of the sleeve, if that makes sense? I'll see if I can find a picture... like this http://www.replications.com/greys/images/Standards/ClothingEssays/jacks/F...

Feel free to say if I'm wrong, as I'm not a fighter, but would it really be correct for everyone not in full harness to fall under arrow fire? Just thinking, as although hardly any of our fighters are in full tin, they are still pretty heavily armoured, whether brigs or a combination of other protec...

Medieval and tudor nobles certainly ate meals outdoors during hunts or for summer entertainments- whether they were called picnics I have no idea though. Certainly thwey were definite occasions, so I suppose are maybe closer to the modern notion of a picnic as a treat, than a workers lunch taken out...

Do the recipes actually specify grated cheese? (not being pissy, I'm just trying to remember if I've ever seen a recipe which said that exactly)

We usually just chop cheese small with a knife tbh, although it does take a loooong time

I was going to say a similar thing- medieval shirts don't tend to have collars Also, has he considered getting boots rather than shoes? If so, he could then add thick socks under them (obviously kept invisable) to keep him warmer on the older events- I know its always my feet that get cold first.

I agree with what has already been said- I think pre 16th century earrings are out unless you're extremely exotic, or a sailor!

Also agree that it is never advisable to use anything from a religious image as a source, as the conventions are so different

In general I think that black shirts are usually wrong- certainly I have never seen a piocture of a black shirt on anyone (with the exception of that picture of the Medici's, who as we all know, were massively rich) therefore, like Colin said, I wouldn't wear a black shirt unless it is silk, and unl...
