We've been asked a lot over the last few years where a new performer should start when buying costume pieces. The outer garments are going to be determined by the character being played, but there are two garments that every male performer needs as a foundation: shirts and tights.
Mentors at our local renaissance festival used to make this recommendation: have enough shirts and tights in your costume closet to get you through a three day weekend with a fresh outfit each day and no laundry until Tuesday...We think that's a good plan.
Seamlyne Reproductions is committed to creating the most comfortable
tights, codpiece tights, shirts, and chemises that you'll find anywhere.
Our tights are available with or without codpiece, and are ideal for
renaissance festivals, stage performances, circuses and circus performers.
Our shirts are perfect for professional costuming applications or
high school plays.
