Lauryn-

I passed your question on to a professor of mine here at UT who
specializes in the 1640s and Restoration.  I'm attaching (or pasting)
her response.  Hope it helps!

I don't do so much in costume history, but in addition to the usual
resources on costume (Wilcox, et al), I would look at a recent
collection of essays from Routledge, Masquerade and Identities: Essays
on Gender, Sexuality and Marginality, ed. Efrat Tseelon.  There are
several pieces in there that might be helpful.  Other things that might
be helpful are "Women and Carnival Masking," Sarah Carpenter, _Records
of Early English Drama Newsletter (1996), Dagney Boebel's "In the
Carnival World of Adam's Garden: Roving and Rape in Behn's Rover" in
Katherine Quinsey's very good collection _Broken Boundaries_, Janet
Todd's _The Secret Life of Aphra Behn, and Derek Hughes' _The Theatre of
Aphra Behn_.

Hope that helps!
