Below is a sample of clothing you can use to create the ultimate costume.
This Elizabethan Ruff has a plastic stiffener inside to retain the shape. It is adjustable to most neck sizes with three snap fasteners. Available in stiff white cotton fabric or a silver poly blend taffeta.
Inspired by the popular Italian Commedia dell'arte, this full gown is made of dark red taffeta and black velvet, and a silver and black arabesque print stomacher. Adjustable by virtue of the rear sash, the complementary 6” red taffeta that comes with this perfectly adds to its 46” skirt and 5” modesty panel.
Faithful to Middle Ages and Renaissance, this 58” hand-stitched chemise from the master tailors and seamstresses of rural India is made of 100% hand-loomed cotton, and consists of drawstring neck and wrists, elaborated with crocheted cotton trims.
This simple red dress is trimmed with black cotton velvet at the cuffs and collar and includes an embroidered belt. Fully lined in red cotton, it has a lace-up back. Princess seams provide a perfect fit.
This medieval ensemble is comprised of a green cotton boned corset-style bodice with attached ivory-colored cotton sleeves and a rich chocolate brown ultra-suede floor-length skirt. Includes an embroidered belt.
This apron is made of a soft, natural colored cotton. It ties in the back for easy fit and is a fun accessory to almost any ladies period outfit from Viking times through the French Revolution.
This racy pantaloon is made of soft, white cotton, featuring an easy-fit elastic waist and waterfall lace with blue ribbon detailing at the knees, and works perfectly with the New Orleans Camisole.
A racy camisole that works as a stand-alone or under garment and goes perfectly with the New Orleans Pantaloons, this is made of soft, white cotton with a button-up front and blue ribbon trim.

Review of: Venetian Renaissance Carnival Dress
From the picture, I thought this gown would be more of an mauve color, but it's a pretty periwinkle blue.
It's a lovely style, and looks great with or without my Museum Replicas farthingale. I prefer it with the farthingale to keep the hem from touching the floor.
I'm 5'9" with a longer torso, about 190 lbs. I ordered a large. I was worried the waist and skirt might be too short, but both are just fine. I was able to slip the laced gown over my head, then tighten it with the waist ties, no handmaiden needed.
The gown is 100% polyester with a 100% cotton lining. The cotton lining isn't ideal to slide over my cotton farthingale, but it wasn't terrible. Might make a silk slip to go between the two for maximum drape.
Love it, love it, love it!

Review of: Anastasia Crown
This was bought as a special wedding gift this summer. The crown was crafted very nicely, and the red gem option was perfect as an homage to her birthstone. So many gems on this and not one out of place or missing- the box was damaged in transit but the internal packaging was safe even for an egg! An added bonus was the set of pins included to secure it upon the head. This makes a fine gift or costume addition for any and all sorts of occasions!!!

Review of: Hand-Woven, Hand-Stitched Chemise
this is the best chemise i have ever had, I will tell you I loved it! I wore it as a night gown, I wore it under skirts, I wore it to death. I bought it 13 yrs ago for 40 $ and it lasted 5 yrs, I did wear it a lot! I went back to buy another and the price went up to 80ish so I declined. So today I thought now 80$ , it was worth it. I just came one to buy it again. yikes.I must admit it is a great chemise, but! from 40ish to 144 in 13 yrs?
