About the author

Sarah Lorraine


Sarah discovered her dual passion for history and costume right around the age of twelve. Dragged kicking and screaming to her first Renaissance Faire at Black Point, she was convinced she was going to hate it, but to her surprise, she fell head over heels in love with the world of reenactment and dress up immediately. Her undergraduate degree is in Clothing & Textile Design, and she has a Master's in Art History and Visual Culture. When she’s not hauling crap to SCA events and ren faires, Sarah enjoys reading true crime books, writing fiction, and sewing historical clothing from the Middle Ages through the 20th-century. One of these days, she might even start updating her old costuming blog again.

    Not familiar with his work but gosh if this isn’t a visual lesson in how much a difference hair can make in appearance—I don’t know if I’d recognize him much across these roles.

    There is no better work about WWI and War and Bureaucracy than Black Adder Goes Forth.

      In Blackadder Third he played Topper an English nobleman, The scarlet Pimpernel (Lord Percy) and Le Comte de Frou Frou (Picture shown above). It was a great episode “Nob and Nobility”

    Just a slight correction. The first Blackadder series was actually titled The Black Adder. The name didn’t become a solid compound until the second series.
