Description

This was commissioned from me a few years ago by someone who plays Richard Tarlton at ren faires (he was a jester in Elizabeth I’s court, and purportedly also good friends with Shakespeare). However, once I finished the costume, the guy disappeared, so I haven’t been able to actually sell it to him. It’s been long enough now without hearing anything from him (about a year), so I’ll be offering this on Etsy once I get better model photos.

I chose the purple and gold color scheme in order to convey the idea of the royal court. The flowers on the purple half resemble the Tudor rose. There are bronze jingle bells sewn onto each of the dags along the hem, collar, and cuffs, as well as on the hat tails and the pant drawstring.

Material Notes

Gold fabric is linen/cotton, purple printed fabric is 100% cotton. Notions: thread, cotton cording, bronze jingle bells.

    Very nicely done! Don’t you hate it when your clients run off to never be heard from again? Good luck with the sell of this one, it shouldn’t take too long!
