- Sep 10, 2011I'd also be leery of trusting anything in a Mel Gibson movie (some are
ok, most are not) for historical accuracy in costuming. Braveheart takes
place in 13th cent Scotland. They didn't even get some of the facts and
battles correct. and checking on google images (have you tried that?
braveheart princess - you get pics) I see there are a few outfits. Which
are you talking about? I hope not that awful heraldic thing that is very

medieval in general - and if so, medieval in which country and what time

But what I need are books that help me with terminology for making midieval clothing. I have to be able to discribe ...everything and I loved the costomes worn by the princess in Braveheart. I can't find any details about how her costomes were made or what embellishments were used. I can't even find a good picture to print just so I can start isolating the different "things" and researching what they are. Can someone please be kind enough to direct me to any reference sources that would help. Thank you.
