I finally had a chance to put paint to brush to work on these figures this weekend.

Nice work. I like the movie Kiss Me, Kate; it seems that it would be a better source for colors than I would have thought.

DO YOU BITE YOUR THUMB AT ME, SIR?!?

[We've done this before, but I'm your huckleberry-oh, and jumping a few lines to get to the point more quickly]

No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I
bite my thumb, sir.

But if you do, sir, I am for you. I serve as good a man as you.

How do you know they are Italians and not Basques?

Interestingly, a quick and dirty fashion survey would indicate the woman's bonnet is more of Northern European use,…England and Holland.

Young Shakespeare in Love?

FWIW

I'd respond again, but we seem to have swapped roles and to transition to the next good part we need someone to tell us to put up our swords.


To return, however briefly, to the point of the OP, I've been looking at Zaffirelli's Romeo and Juliet-for example see:

The clothes in the movie version of Kiss Me Kate, to my taste, look too much like stage costumes. Looking for Italian Renaissance or Romeo and Juliet costume images gives you quite a bit of variety for examples.

I'd pretty much assumed the sculptor's clothes (returning to the Eureka figures) were stage costume interpretations of Italian period clothing seen through the lens of Shakespeare plays.

Nasty bit of business, the rapier.
