Or really ever....there are still valuable, loved members of the SCA who after 10 plus years still run around with only one or two mostly period T-tunics in their kit. A sincere attempt is all that is really needed. But you will probably find that you will want to follow the growing kingdom trend of historical accuracy in your clothing and accoutrements.

It took me several years (6 to be precise) before I started to really understand what "period" verses "relatively period" was...and  though I am working on more "period" stuff...I still haven't gotten it to the level I think I should be...and that's after over 12 years of study.  Most of my study has been self directed...sometimes I wish I could have been at a comfort level to reach outside my own area (I grew up in a group that was very isolated and had few people to mentor me) and gotten more direction. My advice is to reach out for help!
