World Costume for Theatrical Productions

« prev  ·  home  ·  next »

Known for their prized beadwork, Halflings in traditional garb present a bright and colorful picture. Reds and purples dominate, with natural leather used as a contrast. Wool, both knitted and felted, is a favored material. The finest wool produced is called cameline, and fetches a good price on the northern trade routes. Multicolored woolen tassels dangle from the points of hats, sleeve welts, collars, and vests.

Halflings frequently go unshod, even in inclement weather. Those that do employ footwear favor a calf-high leather boot lined with soft fur. The seams are turned to the outside and form decorative lines around the foot and up the shin. The tip of the toe turns up slightly, a design that hearkens back to the use of stirrups.

The hats worn by traditionally-garbed Halflings are quite distinctive. Females wear fur-trimmed hats with turned-up brims and conical crowns, sometimes adorned with colorful ribbon streamers. Males wear a hat with three peaks in the brim and a round, fur-covered crown.

For both sexes, the sleeves end in long tapered cuffs, said to represent the hooves of horses. In cold weather they can be turned down to warm the hands, or be used as protection when touching particularly hot or cold objects. Females traditionally wear short, fitted vests with several bands of trim around the edges and center front. The sleeve heads are full, and gathered into an appliqued band around the upper arm. The moderately full skirt also ends in several wide bands of decorative work. Males wear a sashed tunic which opens at the right shoulder. Offset bars of color decorate the chest, and the sleeves have a small amount of fullness at the top.
