Masquerades & Massacres

All attendees at Masquerades & Massacres are expected to make at least some effort towards historical costuming. Here are some very very basic guidelines on Regency Costume- please feel free to discuss costume further on the forum. Costume that exceeds these guidelines is encouraged - don't think you have to slavishly abide by them if you have more historically accurate kit.

There are photos from our first event There are photos on on Flickr.

Ladies - Gentlemen - Officers

Ladies

Ladies should at a minimum wear long dresses or skirts, and cover their shoulders. Ideally dresses would be high-waisted. Trousers are very indecent!
Some sort of coat or jacket is a very good idea, in case the weather isn't nice.

Ladies - Gentlemen - Officers

Gentlemen

Gentlemen should at a minimum wear black, white or grey trousers or shorts (but if you're wearing shorts you should wear long socks- no bare legs!); white collared shirts; waistcoats; dark jackets (white tie or morning suit jackets are best, but any jacket will do); black shoes or boots; and a cravat- we'll make sure we have spare white cotton to wrap around people's necks if they don't bring their own.

Ladies - Gentlemen - Officers

Officers

Male officers should wear black, white or grey trousers or shorts; white collared shirts; military-style jackets; black shoes or boots; and a white cloth cravat- we'll make sure we have spare white cotton to wrap around people's necks if they don't bring their own.
Jacket colour denotes which branch of the military you are in: red for the Army, blue or black for the Navy, and green for the Aerial Corps. People with the Foreign flaw may wear differently coloured jackets. Note that in our world, Sharpe wore red.

Female officers should try and combine military and female clothes- maybe a dress with military-style frogging and buttons? Or a military-style jacket over a more conventional dress? Note that trousers would be a very inappropriate and deeply shocking choice of clothing!
