I have some Romani / Roma links saved.
In the end of my research I concluded that they would
largely dress in the fashion of the people, area,time
period of those they lived with at that given time.
There is no "Traditional dress" as they survived by
"fitting in" I had the priviledge of meeting Gypsies
down town Portland when I was a child when my mother worked
in the family support division. My father would take me to
the park blocks to play with their children until she got
off work. The only thing that sticks out in my mind is
that all the men no matter how poor were wearing suits at
least slacks and dress shirts and the women (this was in
the 60's mind you) were wearing skirts/dresses. The
children were happy and a little mischivous and not always
sparkling clean but they all seemed to have a happy if
this is the paining most people refer too. This is a great
article to read! I didn't have it in my list before so
thanks for inspiring me to look again! Great list of
resources are given!
This is a modern site that talks about the culture
I was working on a Spanish persona
an interesting paper
i felt this site had a good honest bit of information.
I concidered just asking the source but online I decided
i'd get the typical stories they are fond of where as in
person I could try to at least know when they are "joshin"
me. It's all good fun
a modern addition to Gypsy culture (I likes it)
Something for the kids here! I love this sites horses
Gyspsy King and Road Sweeper have been on my screen saver
for a couple years now.. If ever I could afford the space
and upkeep... There are some amazing Vardo makers
reamerging but once again they didn't use these in
there are all modern but lots of fun, Sorry i got away from
the garb but the culture comes as a whole...
As you can see I'm in love with the people and the modern
stock of horses. Seems crazy that what keeps me from
rolling into an event with a full vardo is money...
