Re: [Authentic_SCA] Cheat's Elizabethan garb
- There's a wonderfully silly book which has quick costumes for parties
and whatnot -- Jane Asher's Costume Book. It depends a lot on crepe
paper, felt, and whatnot, with very good results.
The Elizabethan therein uses a lot of cut-up fruit gums (she's british,
but she clearly means something like Gummi Bears) and fancy macaroni
spraypainted gold, for gems all over a paperboard stomacher and heavy
cheap curtain fabric. The final result is pretty good.
