One of my son's friends had his birthday party at the Renaissance Festival this year. So yours truly had the pleasure of creating an outfit for said son. Other than the belt, I made the entire costume. I was actually quite pleased with how it turned out and he was very happy with it as well. They had a blast - 5 teenage boys having the time of their life amidst swords and other weaponry. The birthday boy came home with a very nice sword, in fact.
