I will be putting the new ones up tomorrow, and will send the link to those I haven't contacted yet after that. I missed some doozies, but got a few good 'uns too.

Cheers...seems like lots women have okay kit but have a problem with the idea of covering their heads...

I wonder why?...I have always thought of it as a pre requisite.

Looks like many people think modern sandles are an OK approximation, or else their authentic footwear is no good for going shopping...

As for the gentleman in what I presume is supposed to be Landsknecht clothing, all I can say, even for them, is TOO LOUD MAN! It also looks as though he has a full pair of incontinence long johns on, either that or he's had a severely bad prolapse... :wink:

Perhaps he is a russ child kidnapped in a celt slaving raid who - being the only ones who could read his tattoo which says 'return this shawnee to the munchkin landsnecht' - they obeyed with alacrity.

Disappointingly few of the lovely dresses with zips, kilts (one of which was the British Gas tartan) and scary corset stuff

Jalea,

Which crime are you referring to :?: :D

The brooch I removed and will save until the fur edging has gone on gown and I have my posh shoes from Ana and a suitable headdress. :D

Regrettably the burnt herbs are persistant though I am working on that one (can't sprog until I get rid of it).

Lovely to meet you though and look forward to seeing you at other events.

On the head gear issue - won a small battle this year and got a good friend into her first coif. Will admit it was blue but she is going to make a white undercap to go with it. :lol:

The photos are fascinating - loved the leggings, trainers and hankie on head one. The comments are really useful as to a very untrained eye I have no idea what's wrong with some of them. Trainers hanging from a belt - now that was funny

If anyone has other gems they'd like to add, I am happy to put further piccies up.
I'd like to do the same at Berkeley, but it's harder there, as they rent out fancy dress to the public!

as I kept asking at the weekend, what is it with the crushed velvet, the acetate satin, and the gowns in blasted modern patterned cloths?????

you missed the guy in the mailshirt over the football shirt theough (I'm hoping he'd just bought it and it was easier than carrying, but given the guy who went on the field last year with the mail over a t-shirt, you never know).

Here's a thought: next time, could someone set up a stall demonstrating the various ways of wrapping/covering the hair?

It could offer a free "makeover" or "styling session" with every purchase to ensure they put them on properly:

It could provide a range of reasonable headcoverings, and perhaps some very, very cheap ones just to lure the punters in:

It could be manned maybe on rotation, with as many ladies as could spare the time, showing as wide a selection as possible of alternatives "looks" that are considered acceptable.

Maybe the organisers would waive the fee!

Great idea, but you'd never get them to forego the fringes and side-wisps so necessary to the modern aesthetic - so in fact they would look weirder........

I saw the "Landschnecht" on a stall doing puppet jousting things for kids, would that let him off? Of course the tattoo on the side of his head may well get him straight back into jail....

What I'd like to ask is what's with all them ponytails on blokes?

mine's in authentic but if i have to have a hair cut I may just wear it all in my hat. That said, I'd hate to think what else I'd have to do in order to meet those sort of standards. I like my hair.

I tie it back with leather thong as to avoid any obvious authenty probs though.
