Isabella d'Este, who recognized that The Renaissance ("rebirth") was a singular light-burst in the otherwise comparatively dim 1200 preceding years, and who on that count "ran with it," transforming her salon into a small-scale Academy or Andalusia. Humanity owes her many unrecognized debts in art, fashion, and polite society. For these reasons, Isabella was a great soul.

She's wearing a typical German dress similar to the one Katarina Mecklenburg wore. Sleeves slashed and puffed at the elbow, cuffs extended over the hands, and feather hat.

Fabulous SCA garb, especially the man's. I want Riley to grow a beard like that!
Two of the Vikings that I met at the market in Handen on Sunday. The Viking with the beard is called Fredrik. The redheaded Viking Babe answers to the name Helena. Both are into the whole Viking /Medieval thing and have been to several markets around Sweden. Like the Medieval Week on Gotland. Fredrik has also been to the market in Poland and Åland. During this market they displayed some historical games and I will show some photos of that later. I tried the game Släppkäpp where I lost twice to Fredrik who probably had been in hard training for the last few years...

This is beautiful! From http://verdaera.deviantart.com/art/Italian-Dress-Giornea-68091448
Italian Dress made by Verdaera "Giornea (the surcoat like thing) over my Italian gown, and you can get a better look at the lacing in the front. It's one piece, made from a piece of chenille heavy tapestry I got at JoAnns. You can see along the bottom the dagging I have that goes all the way up the sides on the back. I cut off my head cause I didn't like how my face looked in it... but it's no wonder, we did this photoshoot in July, and I nearly passed out from the heat in this thing"

Lady's red cotehardie with gold embroidery and brown tippets (14th century). It is based on picture of Viollet le Duc (Encyclopedie medievale). Similar picture is also in Eduard Wagner's Medieval costume, armour, and weapons. Beautiful!
14th century cotehardie. Tippets are good, but I doubt the necklines would have been off-the-shoulder. I may be wrong, though. This looks more like a costume piece to me.
14th century cotehardie Prima variante di questo tipo di abito con ricami in oro e tippets marroni (14 ° secolo). Si basa sulla foto di Viollet le Duc (Encyclopedie Medievale). Picture Simile è anche in costume medioevale, armature e armi di Eduard Wagner.
