Italian Renaissance Persona

Rinaldo Moretto de Brescia is the name of one of my secondary personas. It allows me the excuse to wear the Italian garb that I like. I am fortunate to have a wonderful Lady-wife who loves to make clothes for me. Check out her wonderful work on one set of my Italian garb made of white satin and blue leather, by clicking here.
