- Sep 1, 2006Hey everyone, and especially the history buffs. I realize this may be
a bit off topic, being historical and not fantasy, but it may be
helpful in both areas.
I will be going to several French and Indian wars rendesvouz with my
4H group this year, and it is required that we come as period correct
as possible. My costume is in progress and going fine, but I've got a
dilemma. My hair is fairly long, at 3 1/2 feet measured from the
scalp, and I need to be able to pin it up and stuff it under a cap.
For this I need elastics and hairpins, but don't want to use, well,
elastics and hairpins.
More specifically, rubber and plastic. Does anyone know of a place
online that I could find good, sturdy metal, bone or horn pins without
rubber or plastic nubs?
I also need a way to tie off the ends of my heavy braids without using
elastics. Ribbons are of course an option, but they invariably fall
off. I'd appreciate any ideas.
Thanks very much for your time,
