Hey, people, if you have any questions about costumes, ask them here! How they are made, what patterns can be adapted for replica use, what materials are good, whether something is period appropriate, or anything else related to costumes, even where you can buy good ones. I wish to be a costume designer and so I have loads of resources that I wish to share. So ask away! Note: I don't know very much about leather- or metalworking, so if you want anything other than whether or not something is period appropriate, you will have to take your question to those forums.
