My name is Carol Hughes. I have Custom Costumes of Rochester. I've been a costumer for 26 years now, and today I'm going to show you how to make a musketeer costume. To make a musketeer, I would begin with a pair of pantaloons, or knickers, over a pair of boots. Then, under the tabard, I believe it's called, you would wear a Renaissance shirt, or possibly a pirate shirt, which is a big, blousy shirt. And then, the tabard would go over that, which has kind of open arms that should tie to kind of keep it in place, and you tie the sides together too. On the front, you would have a crest, probably The Fleur De Lis depicting France, because within comes the musketeers as being French. For the hat, you would use a cavalier hat, which has a folded ups edge into which you would put an ostrich plume of whatever color you would choose. My name is Carol Hughes. I'm the Owner of Custom Costumes of Rochester. Thank you for coming into my shop today and learning how to make a musketeer costume.
