|This costume seems to be composed of doll-like figures.|
Richly illustrated manuscripts known as “Schembartbücher” preserved examples of this fantastical, whimsical attire, and it is from one of these (housed in UCLA library's digital collections) that these images come.
Which is your favorite? I kind of go for the peacock man. Do you think the person depicted at left has a womanly mein? Women (and children) were involved, as attested by the somewhat perplexing images below.
I hope you have enjoyed this brief glimpse of a late Medieval "Project Runway"!
