3940RE: [SCA Newcomers] Garb Questions and more!
- Dec 11, 2002If you are interested in fighting, I suggest the Ironrose web site.
http://www.peak.org/~grainne/Ironrose/ There's a lot of information
regarding women fighting there. Both with heavy and light weapons. I
fight heavy weapons and wear pretty much the same armor as the men do.
Women in pants aren't common in some time periods. I wear pants as my
garb and have yet to have anyone bother me about it.

Okay, garb questions- Can anyone find any historical documentation
for front lacing bodices in the mid 1500's in england? and where
does one buy very very small grommets? (size 00 two peice grommets
and a setter.) i refuse to use eyelets, they irk me.
also, what does a woman fighter wear? skirts seem like a hinderance
but i'm sure a woman in pants isn't common, though i did once see a
woodcutting of a renaissance woman on a hunt in those poufy pants.
and is there a basic website that has something of a general
overveiw of different periods and cultures that one can chose a
and about what time period did light weapons fighting come into
