Byzantine Warrior
Historical research

Cosplayer: Joshua

Variant: 12th Cent infantry

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

29th November 2010: More pics. Tim came round today with a disk of the photos taken last week, so uploaded a few of them. I plan to edit/photoshop some of them to make them more evocative of the Eastern Empire, and perhaps a bit more fun.

26th November 2010: Posting the outfit. I was invited to take part in the Kelmarsh Festival of History, with the group "Hetarei Palatou" who reenact 10th 11th Cent Byzantium, a place and an era I have been interested in for years.
Some of the stuff, padded coat, boots etc, had to be made from scratch for this event. Other bits like woolen hose and linen wear I already had. Today I posted a couple of pics from that event, taken with me unawares. Later I will post some from a recent photo session.

Thankyou everyone. In summer I tend to go to the reenactments, and winter is the season for cosplay. So more outdoor stuff to come, hopefully.
