I have posted photos of these costumes on the web to share with people that like to look at such things. I know that they are not 100% historically accurate. They are close and they have a good level of detail which shows up well in these photos taken by Gail Nichols, Delia Trafton and myself. I would love to hear your comments or questions. Click on the images below to go to a separate page for each Costume. This web site is image heavy, please let me know if you think that the pictures take too long to generate or you think there are an excessive amount of them. For more info on me click on word"bio"
