Paper Dolls Again

c. 1300    Here the woman is wearing a sideless/cutaway surcoat laced up the front over a blue cotehardie.  This style of surcoat was looked down on by the church because it accentuated the feminine figure.  Her hair is worn loose down her back, usually only acceptable for younger women and girls.  The man is wearing a short green cotehardie and an orange chaperon with a long liripipe attached.  The points of his shoes are a bit more elongated.

would like a better picture, but looks like it has some possibility... longer arms, not sure about the hood, or the "frilly" stuff below the belt... but, definite possiblities ...

Mir ist der eine Arm zu zerfetzt, aber ich mags es dass der Mann aussieht als ob er schon viel hinter sich hat.
