Costume Research

I got to the costume research point on my 15th century project where I'm sketching out everyone's costumes.  I love this phase of historical costuming because it's the first point where everything seems to come together.  I love being able to take bits and pieces from sources and put them together in a way that is reminiscent and possible in history but also fits my vision and ideal for the character.  I guess that's why a lot of people get a Jones for original design, but for me it comes out of having found a bounty of right answers and then picking the best fitting one.
