Persona Development Project

04 Oct

There has been quite a bit of talk recently about what each of us can do to be more authentic to our personas. This can range from making sure one’s head is covered to knowing the language and skills of one’s persona. I chose my persona because I liked the name and I liked wearing cotehardies, but I would like to expand my interests and research the time period and place in greater depth.

 

So I am embarking on a project to develop my persona in greater detail.

Over the next few months, I plan to research Lyon in the 1480s, the events of the region, the places Leonete would have visited, and the items that would have been available to her.

I also would like to develop a list of skills she would have had, and have a better understanding of what she would have spent her time doing.

I’d like to learn a little bit of French, and some Latin as appropriate.

I would like to develop a better wardrobe, with 2-3 completely authentic 1480s outfits.

One of the purposes this blog will serve will be the documentation of this project and a repository for links and photos. I welcome any input, starting links, or other help that those who have researched this time period might give me.

    Some Latin for you.

    Cervisiam habes.

    Cervisiae careo.

    Qualis amicus es?
