Complete garb is required to be a villager and needs to be something you acquire yourself. You must follow these clothing guidelines while in the village at the New York Renaissance faire or while officially representing the group at another event. There are links to shopping and to making your own on the Viking Garb page. New members will need to have their outfit approved by our Authenticity Officer.
Woven Linen or Wool period appropriate clothing; such as pants and tunic or underdress and apron dress. Or another combination that is appropriate for the location as well as historically plausible.
Turnshoes with appropriate sole for your safety. Growing children can use a basic moccasin style shoe, please speak to other village parents for guidance.
Accessories should be period appropriate and be plausible if not replicas of historical finds. For example belts must be thin leather with a basic or historical buckle or they can be tablet woven.
Colors worn must fall into the plausible category for the age; very little black, nothing neon, or other modern colors. The Weaving Department can assist if you have fabric or garments in mind.
