When I attend renaissance faire with first-timers, one of the questions I constantly get asked is: “But what should I wear?” I actually don’t give the best advice because I pay no mind to period (at all) and just give generic suggestions. No more though! These garb 101 guides from Robin King save the day!
The images actually give instructions for Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA), but I think they apply to standard renfaire attire, too… that may be one of the nerdiest sentences I’ve ever written. Anyways, the guides walk you through which clothing pieces you need depending on what type of character you want to be. After all, vikings don’t dress like gypsies.
I also love that the guides are bordered with bacon.
Check out the guide for men’s clothing after the break (beware f-bombs).
