Recently I was working on a piece featuring a character whose costume was set in a specific time period. I have a decent reference library on period clothing and, when I looked over the character's costume, I realized it was nowhere near correct. Think of it in the same way that traditional renderings of the Pilgrim's clothes are inaccurate.
Has anyone else run across this and do you correct it or just go with what's established with no worries about accuracy? Just curious.
