    A little OT, looking for late 16th early 17th c scandinavian garb

    Post by phuphuphnik on Sat Aug 16, 2014 6:22 am

    I'd like to put together an early Renaissance Scandinavian outfit to go along with my bow. I'm not particularly looking for a soldier, more of something worn to competition. I'd like to keep it pre 1670s, I'd prefer 1560-1600.
    I know some of out European friends on this forum do this sort of thing.
    cheers!

    A simple Google search on "Norwegian Costume 1560"  or  "Swedish Costume 16th century" will yield a ton of examples such as these below.  There really wasn't much of a "national costume" back in those days.

    For contemporary documents Olaus Magnus was your man
    http://www.avrosys.nu/prints/prints27-olausmagnus.htm

    Right Geatish (south Swedish) crossbowman from 1555,
    -Massive blunt bolts were used for squirrels.

    ( from left Muscovite (russian) Swede (Stockholmer) , Lapplander , Geat)


    (edit )
    a little caveat : Magnus came from Sweden, but his illustrators may have been central Europeans who were guessing stuff.

    Perfect thanks!
    I was getting stuck because I didn't think to use the word costume! I tried doublet, garb, costume was the magic word. duh.
