Well done! I love Luther and learned a bit today as well as enjoying a very cool costume! Please do remember to take pics when you're in costume for your Reformation Day! I'd love to see how everyone else looks with you as well.

Are net coifs like snoods?

Pretty much the same thing,  I think a snood would work perfectly if you put a band on it like that in the portrait (like in the last few pics of you in the outfit).

WOW! I love how much work you out into this. The collar is AMAZING! (it does looks Kate Beckinsale-ish). I can't believe you even made shoes. Wow. Just wow.

I am saying Wow too! Wow! I am impressed. I would have been lost at "Martin Luther had a wife!" I already love her too. I think your outfit is it. Great job!

Well, whoever signed you up had to know what a great seamstress you are. That costume is fantastic! I wonder if you could sell it to a rental shop later...

oh my goodness you guys, thank you soooo much?! I really really appreciate it!!

You should read the book "Kitty, My Rib", it's all about their relationship and was a personal favorite when I was younger. That said this costume looks amazing, especially considering the pieces you used to put it together.

That turned out great. I also love that partlet. I might have to try that for myself...for a costume or just a nifty top...or both. Aw...more for the "some day I"ll make this" list...

I can see why you where disappointed with the faux leather, though. Suggestion for cheap leather - leather skirts from the thrift store. You might have to visit a few or go often but if you find yourself needing leather, or something like it, again, that's worked well for me in the past.

Craft till it hurts.
