Abbey Medieval Festival 2012 (part 2)

Part 1 is here.

The SCA hosted a detailed talk about the costumes they were wearing. Seventeen periods were demonstrated, and the costumes are gorgeous, and mostly made by the women themselves.

Italian noblewoman

 

5th century CE Greek

16th century CE Italian High Court (bubba is in period clothing, too)

15th century Houppelande

Russian costume (foreground); 15th century Tudor lord and lady standing (background)

Byzantine

15th century Burgandian lord and lady

Plastic sword beats plastic axe …

Not having historical costumes didn’t deter people from dressing up – some wore fantasy (non-period) costumes, and I’ll cover them in part 3.
