I have decided to go ahead and make the new 'Historical Help' webiste public!
This is designed to be a 'jumping off' point for new reenactors, not a complete and exhaustive website. I hope to give correct information on basic clothing questions, and get people pointed in the right direction towards reputable resources and merchants.
As you will notice, not everything is complete yet.
I have yet to finish the 'Farby Gallery' the 'Inspiration Gallery'. Thank you to everyone who has offered pictures for the galleries! I am hoping to add these soon. If you have pictures you would like included (good or farby outfits), please comment and let me know! I have been having the best time laughing at my own horrible farby pictures. I'm sure you will laugh too! :^) But, hey. That is what this website is all about. Learning from other's mistakes and helping newbies!
Also the 'Accessories' and 'Extras' pages are not written yet. (if anyone would like to help with this - that would be amazing. On those pages I plan to discuss aprons, collars, shawls, outerwear, quilted petticoats, jewelry, gloves, etc. Things that aren't strictly neccessary for a first-time outfit, but that greatly improve an impression)
I have a few specific pictures I would like to feature. If you have either of these, please considering sharing! 1. A picture of a period-correct silk ballgown 2. A picture of a period correct white sheer waist (garabaldi shirt) ensemble 3. Pictures of straw or silk bonnets
As you view the site, please feel free to let me kow of any improvements that need to be made - or just your opinion. All constructive comments and critisism are welcome!
