My name is Beatrice de Moreby. I reside in California, U.S.A.
I am a novice in Italian Renaissance costuming, but not a novice to sewing. Ever since I seriously started following blogs that revolved around historical costuming, the SCA, and art history I have seen posts detailing entries to various historical costume challenges. Those challenges just seemed so fun. I'd already been overhauling my SCA persona and had settled on 1480-1500 Florence as my new period/region before finding this challenge, and I am so excited to participate. My planned outfit is inspired by the Annunciation of San Martino alla Scalla by Sandro Botticelli in 1481, though not meant to be a reproduction of it.
My proposed outfit:
1. A Camicia
2. A Gamurra (with sleeves)
3. A Giornea or Cloak
4. A set of two necklaces, and possibly a hair net and/or a pocket.
