This costume is based on the one worn by Vanyel Ashkevron on the covers of Mercedes Lackey’s “Last Herald-Mage” series, which were painted by artist Jody Lee. This client requested this costume for her fiancé to wear at their wedding at a medieval faire. The shirt is made from cotton, with lace trim at the collar and cuffs. The breeches are made from dupioni silk, and lined in cotton twill for support. The jerkin is made from dupioni silk, interlined with needle-punched cotton, and lined in cotton. It is trimmed with hand-made silver silk bias tape. It laces up the front with silver grommets. The belt buckle was hand-sculpted, and then cast in resin and painted. The cloak is made of cotton twill, and lined in cotton. The entire edge of the cloak is trimmed with silk bias tape to match the jerkin. Since my client planned to have her wedding outside at a faire, I made her two seat cushions to protect her dress, and this white silk costume, from getting dirty. The seat cushions are made from upholstery jacquard, and interlined in 2 layers of needle-punched cotton. They easily roll or fold up for carrying in a bag, and have removable shoulder straps for carrying.
