Do you have Wal-Mart where you live? They have best kind of thin gold and
silver thread I could find in their craft section -- it doesn't separate or
Scary indeed. I just suggested using Walmart to Kseniia Nikolaevna
for cheap velveteen in a month or so ($6 yd in jewel tone colors). I
love that place, especially as a source for cheap metal buttons.
- Yes, we have Walmart here! I was having nightmarish thoughts about having to
spend serious $$ on the fabric, which of course I'd rather not do. I'm
interested in the influence of the Turks and the Persians on Russian garb. I
did "generic SCA" garb--sort of a watered-down version of Italian Renaissance
(which is to say not very well researched and lacking in detail) so much in
my first five or six years in the SCA that I got really tired of it--I don't
like to do the same thing over and over, year after year. All of my garb
looked the same and it was getting boring. In fact, I wouldn't mind doing a
period Turkish or Persian outfit at all!! :-) That would be fun.
