Yikes is all I can say. :shock:

Having looked at the German ones, basically they are made to measure outfits :roll: I would guess from the pictures that the person in question has purchase some of the fantasy patterns which are available in Germany for Fasching (That's Carnival to you and me) - they still have lots of costumed balls and in the Catholic areas there are huge costumed processions on Rosenmontag, that's the Monday before Shrove Tuesday.

Literally as soon as Christmas is passed, the shops in Germany and Luxembourg start having Carnival sections, with wigs, make-up, costumes, etc.

It was jsut the fact that I was searching on reenactment. (I was bored - it was the middle of the night and I couldn't sleep - not that you could tell).

I'd already exhauseted all my searches on pretty things (you know, jewellery and fabric and pretty czech glass buttons, et etc!) :mrgreen:

Have a good one whatever you are doing.

Ho ho ho ....... ebay is always good for a laff when 'medieval' is mentioned! Note though that the first two WERE American - say no more.

Worryingly the fellow modelling that mock-mail looks like a re-enactor I know! :shock:


Knowing is only half the battle.
