Historical Recreation of Medieval Persia/Caucasus

Here is a costume I have been working on in order to recreate the clothing worn by people from Mongol Persia, the Ilkhanate Empire. I am trying to base it on someone from the region that is now Azerbaijan. To do this I put a Kindjal on the costume. The kindjal is a knife/sword that is part of the national dress of most of the people of the Caucasus region, including, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Chechnya, and the Circassians.
Most of the costume was made by a good friend of mine.
I will be working more on this one :)


Greetings everyone,
Here is a place where I will post thoughts on life, history, research and anything else that I find particularly interesting.
