14th Century Morgan Le Fey by DaisyViktoria 14th Century Morgan Le Fey by DaisyViktoria
Cre­ated for a themed event, this is a late 14th / early 15th cen­tury his­tor­i­cal take on Mor­gan Le Fey. Through­out the 14th cen­tury, leg­ends of King Arthur devel­oped in pop­u­lar­ity. Though the story of Arthur took place much ear­lier, I wanted to cap­ture Mor­gan Le Fey through the style of this period.
This gown, known as cote­hardie, kir­tle, cotte, cote, or gothic fit­ted gown, is based on late 14th - early 15th cen­tury Euro­pean sources. The dress is made of linen. The but­tons are all hand­made. The bot­tom hem fea­tures a con­trast­ing fab­ric that matches the pin-on sleeves, all done with coun­ter­change but­tons. The acces­sories include some magical elements and dried herbs and oils and tinc­tures I cre­ated, all based on period alchemy and arranged on my per­son with a fun mag­i­cal touch.
I love this period, and I had a lot of fun playing all witchy with it!

Really pretty. And the dress is as well. =P
I can't imagine how many hours must have been put into buttonmaking. My hat is off to you.

Thank you! It was many hours of button making, but it's totally worth it! I love these cloth buttons, though they do seem to take forever when you have so many!

I wish! Or at least, I wish when I'm wearing historical clothing! I used to have hair almost this long, but it always got in the way, so now I keep it a bit shorter. I love this wig though!

I was about to be SOOOOOOO jealous. Mine is to my natural waist but I can't seem to get it any longer. And I know what you mean about it being everywhere it's not supposed to be.
