I'm looking at a personna change and need some garb ideas.
Considering 15th/16th Century Spain/Iberia...could even be Late
Looking at Cavalier, Spanish Pirate, or Conquistador.
Any links to historical resources, images, suggestions, pattern

for the Moorish information. They have a lot of specific information.
As far as the other looks, http://www.abcgallery.com/index.html has
art indexed by country, artist, style etc.
Web searches work well for me, especially if I get very specific, for
example, "16th Century Spanish Conquistador images". You may not get
exactly what you want, but these types of searches always get me
There are also these books:
Hispanic Costume: 1480 - 1530
by Ruth M. Anderson
Your best bet to find this is abebooks.com
Tailor's Pattern Book 1589
by Juan De Alcega
This one you can do a used booksearch on also, but can buy it new at
quitespecificmedia.com but it is $40 new.
Hope this helps some & welcome to Spain, you will like it here!
