RE: [sig] Kievan headdresses.....
Unless it states otherwise specifically, the information on my page
should apply to early period Rus, including Kiev, the "capital" of Rus at
that time. Wearing a veil over a povoinik would be completely appropriate
for finishing off your image. You can get more fancy if you'd like with the
kokoshniks or kikas, but it isn't necessary.
My webpage only illustrates one of the ways the scarf, or ubrus, could be
worn. Others on this list can probably give good descriptions. Check out
my "Miscellaneous SIG Headdress Notes" for some prior discussion on the
Sofya la Rus

Subject: [sig] Kievan headdresses.....
I know I need a veil (if only to hide the OOP short
cut), but I'm not sure what else I need to present a finished image.
I do early period (c1030 CE), so I don't think I need anything really
