Hi, lovely Live Journal hive mind.
I need some suggestions and/or ideas.

A friend who is a SCAdian has a broken arm.  He will be in a forearm cast for at least 6 more weeks (and hopefully ONLY six more weeks).  His tunics won't fit over a cast.

Any suggestions on how to make something that would fit over a cast and be easy to put on/take off?    I think it might cheer him up immensely if there were some kind of reasonable plan so he could be able to go eventing.

haaaallllppp!  :)

Some documentation shows that cotehardy sleeves are seperate.

Make him cotes with buttons on the inside. Make false sleeves that will slip on easily.

Theoretically it will work.

all that I can come up with off the cuff would be tabbards.

Japanese? The sleeves are meant to be fairly wide and closed off to make kind of a pocket, but you can leave the cast sleeve more open. http://wodefordhall.com/kosode.htm

Hide the cast and still look good!

Houppelandes? Here are some examples (http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=houppelande+men&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=). And, some thoughts on how to build them. (http://www.virtue.to/articles/circle_houp.html) You could fit a zebra in there, let alone a cast!

Germans? Big Poofy Sleeves FTW! (http://www.google.com/images?q=landsknecht&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=univ&ei=1GT5S76DHoO-M4zOgbsF&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CCoQsAQwAA)
