Need Help with Reenactor Website
If you reenact, or are knowledgeable about the 1860s fashions - I need your help! I am putting together a website for reenactors that are just starting out which includes advice on getting started, what not to do, all relevant reliable authentic online links and shops, picture galleries, etc. (in other words - all the things you wish you had know when you first started reenacting!)
What I need from you:
-Research Articles (if you have written, or would consider writting an article to donate on anything pertaining to 1860s dress. Can be on a specific topic such as bonnets or knitting, or could be general. If you have posted something like this on another website or blog, I would love to link to it! All info must be period correct and well researched.)
-Reenactor Horror pictures (your first farby garments! Don't worry - I have contributed my fair share for the general good and learning of new reenactors. Faces can be cropped out if you wish :^)
-Authenic Recreations pictures - (Your correct historical garment pictures - to be put in an inspirational gallery for newbies!)
You will be given full credit/link for anything contributed. If you are interested, comment and let me know, and we can get in contact via email.
I'm hoping this will be an excellent online resource for 1860s costume fanatics as well as new reenactors.
Any ideas are vastly welcome! My part of the website is almost completed and ready to go up - I just need to know if you have anything to add!
