So, I was thinking it would be nice for the historical costuming/general costuming folks on Dreamwidth to get to know each other better! We still seem to be pretty scattered, and I know I personally would love to read more people who are writing about historical clothing research and projects or crafts in general.

Here are some suggestions for what to fill out, but they're just a guideline. Feel free to write whatever you think will help you find new DW friends!

Where I wear my historical clothes:
Favorite time periods to costume:
Favorite thing about costuming:
Least favorite thing about costuming:
Other types of costuming (e.g. steampunk, cosplay, SF/fantasy, silly):
Other crafts/interests:
Some posts to get an idea of my style:
Anything else:

Since not everyone who does historical/history-inspired costuming in DW is in the community, please feel free to link this post so it can reach a wider audience. Although [community profile] sca_attire is focused primarily on clothing from c. 500-1650 AD, this meme is for anyone who does historical or historical-fantasy costuming, whether that be Age of Sail, steampunk, WWI, or Temeraire cosplay.

Some questions for discussion this week (and may influence which resource posts get started first):

1. If you have a persona or other reenactment focus, what period and place is that?

2. What is/are your favorite periods/places for clothing?

3. What period/place would you like to learn more about for clothing?

4. Are there any post-1600 areas of dress you're interested in as well?
