Garb

We request that all participants make “an attempt” at pre-17th-century clothing commonly referred to as “Garb”. This can be simply:

• A large tunic style shirt.
• Plain pants preferably not jeans.
• Comfortable shoes. Attempt to avoid modern style shoes.
• A blanket to wear as a cloak to stay warm.
• A large wide-brimmed hat or cowl.

As you pick items, always remember to try not to make them “obtrusively modern”. The Chatelaine can assist with loaner garb if needed. Modern prosthetics and glasses are allowed. We would prefer you to enjoy yourself comfortably instead of trying to fit into a period aesthetic. Again, if you have accessibility issues direct them to the event steward or one of their deputies. You may wish to bring several items to the event to make your day more enjoyable.
