Does anyone know how or where or who from I can get costuems to use briefly for a day, preferably costumes relating to the forest?

Ok, I've been doing a lot of research.. tudor costumes are a pain it the arse.

I'm thinking of doing a much earlier period costume - something with a heraldic design on it, so few neat pictures of that though...

Anyone working on a similar project?

I picked the best time (in my world) to make a new community. I'm tremendously busy with a moatload of projects right now, and don't have time to get anything rolling.

My intent, at some point, is to force all of my friends who I sew with to get on here to converse, and hopefully find new friends to create with as well.

I tend to organize people for 'craft days' where everyone gets together to do their thing and exchange ideas. I know there are a lot of those type of get-to-gethers in town, and this wont be the first, or the last. Just an other one, with people who focus on costuming.

What kind of costuming are you kids into? Any interesting costuming research? Good links?

I'm looking forward to seeing your stash of strange costuming links.

Yay, new community! Well, I worked in my college theatre making costumes for all kinds of shows for 4 years. By the end of my college career, the love of the shows was the only thing making me take classes. I have been involved with Renaissance Faires for 8 years and did all the sewing for myself and 2 clueless friends. I can make a circle skirt in half an hor and a peasant blouse in 10 minutes.
