Cynthia Virtue's Bookmarks
...or rather, this used to be the bookmarks page. But mostly what
people ask me is "where can I get good stuff for medieval/renaissance
costumes?" I thought about setting up some sort of ratings system
for merchants and webpages, but realized it would be a real morass of
links, and a lot of work, and probably wouldn't be as useful as I
hoped. But then I realized that the answer is simple:
If you want accurate costumes, do not
buy from anyone who won't show you pictures of the sources they worked
from. And don't believe web articles, collegium seminars, or
offhand remarks by others who won't show you (or refer you to) the
medieval or renaissance original images they base their theories on.
Pretty easy, eh?
