|Mountain man, who might have married a Native American woman, wearing the clothing the tribe made for him. Something of a mismatch, because he is wearing a Colonial era tricorne hat.|
|Native American shell dress, for ceremonial occasions|
|A good friend of my brother's, dressed in Colonial era townsman's garb|
|Iroquois scout - just as elusive as his inspiration!|
The best part is that the people in historic societies like this have done a LOT of research for their costumes/characters, and if you want information, make sure you have some time because they really enjoy talking about the time frame, the character, the clothing, the technology of the time, and so forth. Another great thing is that these are some of the most considerate, kind hearted folks on the face of the planet.
If there is a local historical reenactment group near you, pay a visit some time. You will definitely enjoy yourself!
