Norman of the 1066 era, made on 10-11-2002

The first set of photos shows the layers to my 11th century Norman outfit. The first image is me in linen braises (I left the shirt on to spare the viewers). The second layer is the linen braise with wool hosen added (the hosen are pointed to the braise). The third layer I have a linen under tunic on and wool leg wraps added to the wool hosen. The final layer I have my wool tunic on and a pair of Norman boots. This outfit minus the boots cost $55 to make. The leather for the boots cost about $20 in materials.
