Same Attire Every Year?

Postby 9ah » Sat Jan 05, 2013 9:15 am

Other than a coat, goggles, hats or your boots is there any attire that you definitely pack and wear every year? I brought my Queen of Hearts dress out this year and its on my repack list. What's on your list?

My Cheerleader suit from "American Dream" theme. Complete with custom embroidered BRC on shirt.

My rubber duck footy pajamas...several years old.

And... my newest...

Roman Helmet with Red Tunic and Lorica Segmentata. And, possibly, Burgundy Paladium Commando Boots.

And..I wear this shit every day too, Simon!

Love the Roman gear and the cheerleader suit.

I'm pondering adding some boy scout attire to my packing pile.

I wear mostly what is comfortable during the day. Normal with a bit of quirk. I bring my big fur coat for chilly nights. I always bring a tutu or two but never wear them...

Oh and my animal onesies (skunk and giraffe). Those are great night time outfits for me. Drunk skunk :D

That Lorica is going to get hot, Tom. Consider putting a bit of padding under it: subarmalis.

Got the subarmalis. Was thinking this would be good for a nice night out to the Duck Pond. Or the Revofukinlution, if the ponds not open. Or, if I'm really feeling up to form, may wear it for a shift at the DMV! Maybe an evening shift.

Is this Roman gear a new thing? Are you a reenactor on the side?

I'm a quarter Italian (sicilian) so in a strange way, my homage to my grandfather....who could probably care less about the Romans. Truth...I've always been interested in the Romans..found a helmet at our local gun shop and got the steel t shirt for Xmas. Its something new for me...don't care what people think, but something I want to do. Kinda like the 6 foot teddy bear suit I made in 2001...wore it once, but learned soo much from it!

I sort of rock a black and white/zebra get-up... so my "must bring" list always includes an endless plethora of checkerboard, zebra-print, and other assorted black/white goodies.

Our yukatas or robes, Larry's utilikilt, a LBD and ruffled pettipants for him, my salwaar kameez, my Arabian abaya, nighties, sleep pants, flowy skirts, muumuus, the tiger suits, and I rotate other piece s in and out of the collection. Big fury white coats we rarely wear. Capes, assorted hats and boots. Maybe the Star Trek costumes, Larry's PVC booty shorts and his tutus.

I like a lot of options, then I sit around in my fancy underpants.
These are not my fuckos.

I wear the same playa attire every year and at the Regionals...no one knows or cares about the lack of creativity except me.

Rude!! Well I've got two so far... I know nothing at all about boy scouts. One is a Sam Houston Troop Committee shirt in olive green. The other is a blue Piedmont NC shirt with some animal patches and silver/gold triangles.

Ratty - Cunt Bite.... Thanks to a wonderful camp game (no biting involved)

Lucky - No tutu for tutu Tuesday. It's mandatory this year, they will be handing out fines for those that don't obey. (Drunky skunky) :wink:

Long vintage slips, footie pajamas, my ESD uniform, and my beloved tan leather boots, with the camera belt a friend made to match them.

It's great, don't pay no mind to what folk think. There's gotta be room for a historical reference in this crazy "festival".

I generally bring the same "warmies" every year. My tutus, check. My sun hat, check. Oh and many pairs of fishnets.

Edited to add:

New as of last year! My EL wired tails and heart top hat! Next year I hope to have a more elaborate design on the back of the tails too.
