Interview - Cynthia Barnes

Cynthia Barnes

This month, we talk to Cynthia Barnes, a woman whose passion for historic dance has led to a consuming costuming hobby. Her costuming efforts have crossed a broad range of periods, and her efforts to get the right look have led her to collaborate with other craftsworkers to discover ways to reproduce distant costume accessories, like wheel farthingales and chopines.

In this interview, Cynthia joins us to discuss her latest projects, costuming herself as a man and the fine line between enthusiasm for vintage dance and historic costuming.

Interview - Kass McGann

Kass McGann

Kass McGann has lectured on the subject of historical clothing on three continents, publishing articles on specific items of historic dress as well as how-to guides for reenactors.

Unlike many costume historians who describe what clothing of a certain period looks like, Kass seeks to understand how it was made. Her business, Reconstructing History, makes this information available worldwide with an extensive line of historical dressmaker patterns that are exacting in historical detail and include copious notes of interest and simple directions.

Kass talks to us this month about where her obsession came from, where she intends to take it, and how she deals with projects that won't behave themselves!
