>Good gentles...
>I am beginning the ambitious project of creating a new web page- a
>comprehensive source to SCA newbie costuming. The two principal goals are
>to take the intimidation out of first time garbing and to encourage more
>beautiful garb for everyone.
>The site will include many parts, but the bulk of it will be a breakdown by
>I.  brief overview of period- split by gender
>        A.  line drawings of costumes and terms
>        B.  simple instructions for
>                1. period shapes
>                2. colors
>                3. fabric
>        C.  advanced instructions
>        D.  court garb- tips on how to make the everyday fancier
>        E.  accessories- headpieces, jewelry, etc.
>        F.  FAQ and tips from others (submissions)
>        G.  Inspirations
>                1. pictures of SCA folk
>                2. movies
>                3. books
>I truly believe the most important part of this project is the pictures of
>SCA people.  This allows newbies a peek into what is possible with a little
>time and effort, and also gives them an idea of the atmosphere they will be
>interacting within.
>With that in mind, comes my most humble request:  I would like to begin
>creating a portfolio of scanned garb photos and I am looking for
>submissions.  If you have something you would eventually like to see up on
>this page, please send the scanned photo to:
>Please include the name (sca and mundane) of the person(s) wearing the
>garb, and the name of the person(s) who created it (again, sca and
>mundane).  I am also able to scan photos if you would like, but email me
>privately about that.
>Any suggestions or feedback are also welcome!
>Many thanks in advance...
