Thanks for the explanations. We don't have Renaissance Faires (?Fairs) in NZ so it's all a complete mystery to me!

Here in Texas we have a "Charles Dickens Festival" each year on the Strand in Galveston, which is the oldest part of Galveston. It's alot of fun and everyone dresses up in Dickens-era Victorian clothing. Yes, I've dressed up and attended. I love dressing up in victorian clothes. You can find some on e-bay. That's where I found mine. I guess I've never grown up because I've always like playing "dress-up". I've sewn my own cloak to go with my victorian dress and made my own bonnet. So I do wear the clothing around my house, but the only time I go public is at the Dicken's Festival, otherwise, I'd have to endure the "look at the crazy lady" stares.

The Renaissance is a ways off from Victorian. My wife found several patterns available from Medieval to Renaissance, and they can be found at Walmart too. If you can sew, you could go that route. We had a Medieval styled wedding, with 3 days of feasting and merriment
