But I am not content to stop there I also want to learn the customs and manners that were part of the day. For Regency I love knowing that It I go outside I would wear hat and gloves and particular outerwear. That is fun for me.
Everyone needs to find out what is fun for them. There should never be a particular requirement for authenticity. Playing Regency should be fun. we are playing dress up are are we not. I have been recreating History for along time going from one time period to another. It has been a wonderful journey I started out as a 6th century celt. Then I traveled through the ages and ended up doing costumes of the 16th century. Oh that is soooo much fun now I want to include Regency in my journey. I reserve the right to go back and forth through time.
They other thing that makes it fun for me is teaching all the things that I learn to others if they want to learn . I love to share.
