Female volunteers:

Female Volunteers

Removable layers should be worn to keep warm in case the weather is chilly but be able to be removed when it gets hot. Corsets, bustiers, and other armor pieces are often too hot to wear for long periods of time and are discouraged.

  • Plain or medieval style dress or skirt and blouse
  • No long trains, large, trailing sleeves, or hoop skirts
  • Simple head covering (bandanna, straw hat) to protect from the sun, if desired
  • Light shawl, if desired
  • Close-toed, supportive shoes suitable for lots of walking


Male volunteers:

Removable layers should be worn to keep warm in case the weather is chilly but be able to be removed when it gets hot. No shorts and no inappropriate slogans or images on t-shirts are allowed.

  • Khakis, athletic pants, or cotton slacks are better than jeans (jeans get very hot)
  • Simple head covering (bandanna, straw hat), if desired
  • Close-toed, supportive shoes suitable for lots of walking
  • Costume vest
  • Plain or white t-shirt or collared shirt

To make a collared shirt look like a costume shirt (if desired):

  • Wear inside out with the collar turned in; sleeves rolled up if desired.
  • Look up "how to turn my shirt into a medieval shirt" or "pirate shirt."
  • Here is a very short example video. You can sew instead of using adhesive, forego lacing, leave off the pirate patch, etc. (have fun with it!).

Kalasian citizen:
  • Doesn’t have to be fancy or necessarily Asian at all, but if you have something Asian-y, that's great!
  • Asian-type hat will be provided to you (to make it obvious that you're Kalasian)
  • Barefoot/sandals
  • Silky/lightweight blouse or tunic
  • Long vest
  • Pants/capris or skirt
  • Any light or jewel-toned colors
