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.
