::laughs:: what I was getting at is that those are the BEST of the costumes you'd find at a Renfaire! That's as good as it gets, most of the time!

ladies of Scarlett's mother's generation use to spray their muslins with water to make them even more revealing. that might work in the american south, where its bloody INFERNAL in the summer, but....um....in England? in 1800? wouldnt you catch something and die? or is THAT where all the consumptio...

awww... you should look up some pictures of american renfaires. It'll make EVERYTHING YOU DO look so much better! I use them as confidence boosts. :twisted: Bess and Edmund went to one last year, and, of course, looked AMAZING. I wonder what all the people who were HIRED for the faire thought of the...

I washed the wool for my kirtle, but that was partially because I bought it in a revolting color (it was VERY cheap, and had a LOVELY hand) and dyed it. It came out a really nice watchet blue, very authentie. If i WERENT dying it, i think i'd still prewash to get rid of any modern sizing used on the...

shockingly (or not so shockingly, as I live in America) i've seen MUCH worse at Renfaires. This would be a MAJOR step up for most people, as it would put SOMETHING covering their hair! the depths we sink to...its sad. Its also odd that everyone seems to think French Hoods were VERTICAL in relation t...

he costumes were supposed to be 1590s but they used 1560s -1580s elements. Re-enactors and costume historians would have noticed, but it still WORKED. that's because THEY WERE WEARING UNDERWEAR! (sorry, just my pet peeve right now). Also, when I was watching the film I was impressed by the fact tha...

older people/characters wearing older fashions larger breasted/ well upholstered older women in empire gowns would be a touch indecent, and I believe that there was a tendency for them to continue wearing bodiced gowns a la 1700s instead of the more daphneous josephine styles... which required a mo...

Annis, I have a LOVELY leather domino-style mask with a really nifty method of keeping it on my face- on either side there are strings with heavy-ish decorative beads hanging down. You just loop the strings/braid over your ears, and the weight of the beads keeps the mask on without messing up your h...

you, like me, can spot modern fabrics, machine finishing and plastic soles on shoes miles away. my best friend jokes that i can spot a poly/cotton blend at 30 paces...it would be funny if it werent so sad :D frankly, I think that if the wrong fabrics were the biggest problem with the costuming here...

That "Dormer" person looks like she's wearing a dress purchased from one of our Goth-Clothes chains!!! That's just HORRIBLE!

At first I thought you meant that you wore your wedding dress while being a bear, Tamsin. Your wedding dress looks absolutely lovely, and I hope you do get to go to Italy.

Hey, I have feelings you know!
I'm sure you do, as regards "taking over the earth and killing innocent beings".

LOOOVE the makeup job though for the LARP. VERY spiffy. Almost Hellboy-Hound of Ressurection-ish.
