Costume

Costumes are to be provided by the players. Only some accessories and props might be provided by the organization.

We can put you in contact with players from whom you can borrow a costume, or to rental options.

Costume requirement is beginning of the XXth century historically inspired, and a blend of Western and Eastern influence. While we won’t go for historical accuracy, modern elements will be prohibited (especially regarding oriental accessories)

Female character costumes: one day or evening dress (may be a Belle Epoque dress or Oriental variation of the same) for outings. For the inside, a bathrobe or interior dress can be useful. You won’t need a period nightgown as bed time is off-game. The site is in two locations and female characters will have to walk between two areas. Make sure you have shoes that can sustain a short walk (a few hundred meters) in grass.

Female characters will also be required to have their heads covered while out of the Harem. It can be a sheer veil, a turban or a european hat.
