My lady and I do early 11th Century Byzantine. I am a merchant's son from
the outskirts of Constantinople, and she is the daughter of a freedman
(ex-slave) from what is now called Serbia. Originally the Byzantine was
my idea, and Milica was going to do Germanic, but she saw how comfortable
the Byzantine ladies' garb could be (the informal stuff, at least) and
decided to go that way because she could wear cool, loose-fitting things
at summer events like Pennsic.
I'm not trying to push you this way, just suggesting that you look at all
your options, not just Western Europe. You will find most of the SCA are
Western European personae, but not everyone.
Good luck with whatever you choose. :-)
