:) Hi!,

I am new to this website and am new to renacting, my husband does all sorts of re-andacting and I am intersted in joining.

At the moment I am thinking of doing waaf, the land girls or ATS, I am getting trouble finding the uniform as when I look on you tube they all look quite modern, cheap or fancy dress, do you know any websites which will sell replicas of the clothing and will look more like the original costume, as I want to take this seriously due to making it look real life and the people I re-andact with also have the correct dress sense and I want to fit in with events, not looking too silly!! :lol:

Thank you very much, have been looking but not much as yet, also my hair is very long, dark what will be best to do with it??? :D


hope to hear from you guys soon,

mkonsbruckbabe :)

welcome to the forum,
I think Miss spitfire on here will be a good person to listen to on this topic if she comments.
(sorry, hope you don't mind me referring people to you when you see this?)
Regards,
Haydn

Hi Haydn, no worries..

If you have a good search through the female reenactors section and get an idea of who and who not to buy from. Next, let me know your size (don't worry about specifics, but its handy to know if you're a 'modern' size- ie size 12+) or a tiny wee thing (size 4, 6, 8) which kind of determines the advice I can give.

If you can have a good think about what service you'd prefer, I'll be happy to assist.

Kate

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]
