    From Roan Dari Alki: http://www.mehandi.com/shop/harquusplatinum/index.html -- Really awesome for painting temporary tattoos. It lasts a whole event, through rain and sweat, easily removable with rubbing alcohol. The site also has a kit of colors, but it's pretty pricey.

    All these links are pulled from my favorite SCA library. I went through all pulled all the links I thought might be useful from it. A lot of making actual metal armor, but a lot of other stuff too. Obviously it's focused on being historically accurate, so ease might not be paramount with these. However, they WILL make your costumes look awesome and teach you new skills!

    This is the largest and most useful PDF I have found in quite a while:

    http://www.strony.toya.net.pl/~kuswir/MTA.pdf

    Alas, it has no armor but it does have tunic, bodices, shirts, pants, hats, scarves, sashes, etc, etc, etc, etc. It's a crazy amount of clothing including patterns and hints and tricks for how to make 'em properly.
