Why A Renaissance Gown

Posted by | Filed under Uncategorized | Jan 14, 2012 | Tags: | No Comments

ss sb 210x300 Why A Renaissance GownEvery year, societies organize renaissance festivals and even though the invitations make it seem like it is going to be a harmless party, most of the time, the parties end in quite unexpected, and frankly, weird ways. There is no harm in having a little fun though. Except that it isn’t exactly fun when a few drunken mistakes end up lighting a woman’s renaissance gown on fire. Yes, true story. Let us not get carried away this year, and please for the love of God, let us not destroy another renaissance gown.

Renaissance fairs are where you can spot the biggest geeks in the community; dressed up as someone ancient, or some legendary creature, or something entirely weird. It is no surprise that people get a little extra crazy when they see everyone dressed up as morons. You have to admit most renaissance fairs are filled with whackos that think they are going to find a fairy godmother that will grant all their wishes and make them look cool. There is no telling as to how and when this tradition started, but there is nothing more awesome than getting to see everyone make a fool out of themselves every year; men wearing weirdly long and pointy hats, and women wearing renaissance gowns that are so tight, it’s a wonder how they manage to breathe.

It’s true, renaissance gowns are much tighter than they appear, and much less comfortable even though it may seem like they are offering a lot of space. Here is something else that’s true: they are hideous. Yes, no more lying to protect someone’s feelings. Those gowns are hideous. In fact, there is not a single person that comes off as good looking throughout the fair. The excessive make up, and the weird accents, and dear God, the lame jokes; everything becomes a true mess. It’s a surprise this tradition has lasted for so long. It’s unbelievable how women spend days looking to buy the best gowns, and then spend hours trying to fit inside them. Who are they trying to impress? We all know they are in pain. And then they spend days after the renaissance fair obsessing over their weight and make everybody else’s life miserable. Who asked you to wear the gown in the first place?

A more important issue to address is how women need to learn how to protect their renaissance gowns. Seriously, it is not just about putting it on and walking all jolly. Most of the time, those gowns are way too large for them to handle. There have been incidents when gowns caught fire at barbeques just because the air blew too hard. Women, it’s okay to wear something else. America’s got a lot of stores that offer great conventional clothes and at very convenient prices. And there are Black Fridays when those prices go even lower. Please, if you can’t handle a gown, don’t wear one; especially if you think wearing those gowns make you look pretty. They don’t, they make you look like women who are trying too hard.

Medieval Shoes for Women

Delicate leather medieval shoes 300x224 Medieval Shoes for WomenMedieval shoes are some of the oldest types of shoes that were ever designed. They were cut from pure leather and as we study the history and the evolution of footwear, we cannot complete the list without mentioning the medieval footwear. Shoes and women can never be separated. This is simply because women are more in love with shoes than men. They tend to buy them so often even if they cannot afford to have them at the moment. We could say it is an addiction they are naturally born with and thus explain their need to have as many pairs of shoes some of which they won’t even wear. But how does the medieval time relate and influence how women choose to wear their footwear?

Medieval shoes although not commonly sold and bought by women can still be found in the market. The shoes will go for a relatively cheap price as their demand is not that high. One can buy the shoes from any store that sell medieval items but they can also be available from other shoe stores. They mostly will be cut from one design but in different colors. They are still manufactured like they were before during the medieval times but with a little bit of twist to give them a bit of today’s fashion. The shoes will have a pointed design because this is what they first looked liked. Before, they were only designed to reach the ankle but today we do have these shoes in various designs including knee high boots.

How to wear them is very simple as well. Medieval shoes can be worn with basically anything in your closet. You can wear the shoes with jeans, long and short skirts and even medieval dresses if you have any. When you choose to wear the shoes with jeans, they will look much better if you were to tuck in the jeans in them. The medieval inspired boots that we wear today can be worn mostly during the cold weather as they can get too warm for the sunny weather. You also want to ensure that the choice of color goes well with most of your outfits. Get dark colored shoes so that you don’t have to keep on buying other types of medieval colored shoes so as to match what you want to wear especially for events.

Caring for your medieval shoes is also quit important. As a woman, we are aware that you will have hundreds of different pairs of shoes to wear. That way, you will tend to ignore the medieval shoes every now and then because they are not meant for today’s fashion. However, this does not mean that you will never wear them again. Therefore, it is important that you store them in the proper manner so that when you want to wear them, they will be in good condition. The shoes need no special attention all that is important is that you clean the shoes before storing them.

Medieval clothing for men and women

Posted by | Filed under Uncategorized | Jan 13, 2012 | Tags: | No Comments

Medieval ArcherVest Duo b 300x201 Medieval clothing for men and womenMedieval Era is known for a lot of changes it brought not only in literature, music, food or philosophy but also in clothing. Every era, following the medieval era took, tips from medieval clothing to enhance the style and charm of clothing.

The different trends and fashions in medieval era began when the soldiers came back from the crusades and used to bring back expensive clothing materials. These materials were bought by the aristocratic class and then they used to call in tailors from other countries to sew their clothes but later their own seamstresses learned to stitch clothing in different cuts and styles. Dull and colorless clothes were replaces by vibrant, cheerful colors and dresses.

The medieval aristocrats were the pioneers of the medieval fashion trends because before that the medieval clothing  used to be tedious and dreary. After the introduction of different new materials like silk and satin, the women began to wear tight fitted bodice but the skirts were frilly and loose. The skirts and gloves were usually made of silk and the rest of the clothing, that is the sleeves and bodice used to be heavily embroidered. The medieval wealthy women used to be encumbered with jewels. Diamonds were also introduced in that era, whereas men began to dress up cordially. They started to wear leather or sheep skin jackets which were very expensive. Leather boots also came into fashion. The undergarments of women were mostly made of silk while that of men were made of linen.

The middle class was struggling at that time to make a secure a position for themselves in the society but many members of this class had emerged as successful business men, so they could afford the luxury of elegant and well designed clothing. The women of the medieval middle class used to wear velvet and satin. They couldn’t beat the women of aristocratic class in terms of jewelry but they wore their share. Certain laws were also passed at that time which made it crystal clear that the aristocrats and the middle class does not dress up so lavishly that the lower class gets offended. These laws were able to assert some balance in the society. The royal members and middle class toned down a little but still the profligate sense of luxury in clothing and style couldn’t bring in that balance in the society which was required.

On the contrary, the lower class or the peasants continued to dress up in the long loosely fitted dresses. They were only able to wear something lively when they were given the used clothing of the elite class. The religious people, such as the priests and monks also dressed up moderately. They only had two or three robes for special occasions.

Medieval clothing was like a foundation for the coming times because it brought revolution not only in terms of politics, literature and society but also in terms of clothing and food.

That’s why medieval clothing is considered as the role model for the other eras.
