Re: [SCA Newcomers] persona advice
I hope you don't mind, but I've forwarded your post to my Shire's
Chatelaine, Lady Violante de Sant Sebastian. She's quite the expert on
Moorish Spain and *loves* to share her interest with others! (She did a
major sales plug for it when the focus of our newcomers' meeting was
"personas"--she's always looking for converts. <grin>) She's done a LOT of
research on clothing for that time and place, and has taught on the subject.
Hopefully, she'll be able to point you toward a few resources.
Good luck with your research!
