I need a way to get two simple locations (even one would suffice) and some clothing from the 1800's, here are the characters.

Young girl
Mother
Father
Brother
Pastor (clergy)

Please let me know if you can help. Thanks.

Here is the type of location I need... a shack or log home that could look like it's from the 1800's... I COULD just use a shack, if I had to. Thanks! :beer:

I did a western a few years back and finding the clothes ended up being simpler than I thought. Some country and western stores sell the kind of clothes that people wore back then, but you have to know what will work. The type of pants they wore were flat fronts, most with little brass buttons on the top for suspenders and they were cotton. The kind of boots they wore were square toe (not round) and the shirts they wore were mainly colarless. Check out reenactor sites too for wardrobe and locations. Here's one I ran across doing a google search for reenactor wardrobe: http://www.ushist.com/wardrobe.htm

Once you know what the look is, you can go to thrift stores and buy clothes similiar for cheaper that will still work.

The wardrobe is pretty much the same. There are quite a few websites that have 19th century clothing for pretty cheap. Hope that helps.

Not sure what your budget is but I found several cabins at Weesha Club (http://weesha.com/cabins.htm).
