Historical Reference

Advice for history re-enactors, in "The Cost of Accuracy"from folo1 at livejournal:
Get the basics first and then acquire whatever else you will need. Barefoot is appropriate for nearly every period. A cloak is unnecessary if your shows are in warm weather. Do not neglect head coverings, which can be as simple as a wimple or a hood but which can go far to conveying a sense of historical clothing because, with a few exceptions, head coverings were required in most cultures.
[emphasis mine - isn't this interesting?]
