Sharing: Stuff about Sengoku Jidai Clothes

Found some neat sites that talk about medieval Japanese clothing.

(It's true. I'm getting ready to make costumes, but the truth is, I had these links saved already cause they help me describe and understand stuff better)

This one tells you the name and how to wear most of the armour a better dressed Japanese soldier would wear (although most of the foots soldiers weren't dressed this well), and even tells you how to make a lot of them:

Some stuff about portraying  Buddhist monks which has info which can be used by writers:

(including how to tie them.  they are tied differently than men's.)
