Folkloric costume from the Museum of British Folklore

Images of costumes of British ritual and celebration via The Museum of British Folklore...it doesn't exist yet as a museum but you could help it happen

The purpose of these costumes are to invoke spirits, relate to and reflect natural powers, and to communicate with an audience. They often serve specific ritualistic needs... love, anarchy, peace, fertility, harvest, beer, temperance, celebration, protest..
