If you are putting together a costume for a Renaissance Faire, a Live Action Role Playing (LARP) character costume, or an outfit for a theatrical performance, you know how important it is to be as authentic as possible. The name of the game when it comes to any of the above scenarios is authenticity and atmosphere. When everyone involved is wearing costumes that look like the time period you are trying to emulate, it is easy to imagine that you are actually there. As soon as you see someone wearing a modern shirt, or a costume piece that is of the wrong time period or wrong culture, it can remind you that you are not actually in the time period.
Most of the times the transgression is something obvious like a modern item. However, another cause of the loss of atmosphere can be a costume that isn't complete. People in the Renaissance era didn't just wear gowns; they also wore trinkets, jewelry, hats, and other decorations. Without these final little embellishments, a costume could appear to be lacking. That is why PearsonsRenaissanceShoppe.com has a number of Renaissance Hair Accessories available so that you can add the finishing touch to your costume and help maintain the atmosphere.
