      Here in Trimaris, our Ladies will wear their normal garb for most of the year and then in summer switch to roman or greek garb for the summer heat. Wear whats comfortable.

      > This is absolutely inaccurate. I have heard the same assertion made time and time again, but there is no basis for it. You are also not restricted to a single persona. I know of a gentleman out in anTir who has an early period Scottish persona and a second late period Scottish persona that is the great great grandchild of his early persona period, its a clever way to have more than one era of garb and still have your persona fit. Many people have their main persona and a secondary so they can wear other garb, others don't really bother much with the persona at all and use the same persona name but use garb from any period they feel like representing. I would suggest using a fairly generic persona name that you can make fit in a number of periods and that you can possibly alter to fit other cultures as well.

I am under the impression that if I do indeed create a persona, that I must always wear garb that identifies with where and when my persona is from. Is this accurate? I wish to know because I am deeply fond of creating all different types of garb and do not wish to be restricted to one kind.
