In a week and a half, I'm in a running of "The King's Musketeers" live action game. By incident or accident, I ended up in a plum role - Porthos.

Life being what it is right now, I had jumped on a bandwagon organized by someone in the game - rental of costumes. The quality was good, and the price couldn't be beat. Unfortunately, that bandwagon broke an axle - the deal has fallen through (for pretty much everyone involved). It looks like they'd been aiming for a discount for us as a theatrical production, but apparently that means we needed non-profit or charity status, or somesuch. Whatever it is, the rental is not to happen.

So, now I'm challenged to come up with costuming as a Musketeer in a week and a half. For SCA garb, I'm basically a t-tunic kind of guy. 1600s France is way out of my period and style. And I'm a big fellow - the number of folks who do late Renaissance garb that I could borrow... well, I don't know who I could ask. And the Musketeer tabard is a pretty specific item.

To the collected wisdom of my fannish friends and acquaintances... help? Anyone have good resources or websites that don't charge exorbitant fees?
