Re: Period name
- Go viking or anglo-saxon, and you can wear some checkered pajama
Email me directly if you want details on chausses, hosen and braes.
You do NOT want to wear spandex/lycra/elastic tights like Flynn in
robin hood! Those are definately not period, and if you do want to
wear hose/chausses, most periods in Europe have some long body cover
that extended over the nether regions so you're safe.
If you wear a large enough tunic/surcoat/tabbard/cote, you can wear
some jeans or a pair of mundane shorts.
As far as names, there are a ton of name lists on the web which not
only list period/ancient names by region/language, but also give their
meaning in translation.
