I have seen many a Beltane where people bring out their more "fun"
garb. But that does not mean that the garb is not historically
accurate. Take Anya's "Moo-dor" dress as an example. Her dress is
cowprint, yet it is a historically correct Tudor dress. Also, the
use of animal prints can be documented during the 15th and 16th century.
So, you can be historically correct and a bit "outlandish" at the
same time. :)
I believe that one should not wear the "fantasy" or "rennie" outfits
(no glittery flourescent taffeta puh-leeze!), however one should be
allowed to have a bit of fun in their garb selection at Beltane.
