Outfit for character of Thomas Culpeper, Henry VIII's favourite courtier, personal dresser, and very naughty fellow.

Above is the secret new and easy method I invented for the look of slashing/pullthroughs. I think it looks much more authentic than the previously used method of ribbon work.

His Majesty's Admirer is a Milkmaid from the Kronenburg Ren Faire. Her outfit is not mine.

Court Dress that has been worn for characters of Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, both on whom are endearing because they were each beheaded for Treason.

Theatrical secret: The "Pearls" are actually drops of puffy paint. Just as nice looking, even from just a few feet away, but around a quarter of the cost and trouble of fabric with pearls sewn on.
