My Three Musketeers Prop Collection

Unless otherwise Specified, none of the props shown in these pages are for sale.

Since the film was released in the early 1990s, I've loved the Walt Disney adaption of the literary
classic, The Three Musketeers. The film had humor, action, romance...
everything that a film about the Musketeers should be. Okay, it did take liberties with the original work,
but overall it was a good film. Now I've visited the Minnesota Renaissance Festival several
times since 1988, and I've never gone in period garb.

Now with the explosion of resources on the internet, I figured someone out there
must be able to make an accurate reproduction of the Musketeer Tunic as worn by the actors
in the Disney adaption of The Three Musketeers.

To this end I started looking and going over what I possessed already from my visits to the
Ren Fest.

Instead of going for a 100% screen accurate costume representation, I went more for what appealed to me, and
what gives the overall "feel" of the time period. The only exception to this guideline was the Musketeer
, which I'll get into later...

The basics...

For the basic costume elements, I have a variety of items...

The sword in the Disney adaption also was very stylized. Most noticeably is the large enameled
cross design in the loop of the handguard.

I think it would be reasonably easy to cast this item
in pewter, adding flanges onto the end of each section of the cross, that way the owner could
locate the rapier of their choice and clamp the design into place. I've done a little metal casting
so the idea is sound, it's just getting the original item sculpted that will be hard.

Now just sit there for a moment and imagine there's a nifty photo of something really cool here. No, I didn't really think you'd buy that.
