On the left is my first try at the costume contest at Northern Faire CA. On the right are Michelle, in Lower Class costume and I later that day. There is very little of the costume that is still the same, the attifet and the beginnings of the pieces of jewelry. Nice ruff!
Phase 2: Me besides myself with my cat. There is new trim but, the same sleeves and foreskirt and jewelry. In the first pictures and these I have on a large farthingale. That was very correct for the period of the 1580's. Nice ruff!
Phase 3: Me besides Michelle's dog Bow. Things are getting perhaps a little over done. We have a different hat. I wore it for a while it looked good from the front. There were silk ties down the front, a large bum roll and gloves. We have the final sleeves and purse. Nice ruff!
