  1. 1. Garb 101 Basics Garb For All Class by: Antoinette of Khador
  2. 2. What is Garb?  1.1. Garb is defined as the clothing to be worn by all participants of Belegarth.  1.2. Minimum garb is the basic requirements for all participants. Minimum garb is defined as:  1.2.1. A tunic or tabard covering the torso.  1.2.1.1. Neutral colored t-shirts, with no visible printing, may be worn underneath a tunic or tabard.  1.2.1.2.

Footwear should be muted colors, boots are preferred athletic shoes should be of a dark color and not unnatural. Barefoot or Sandals are acceptable.  1.2.5. Any piece of modern equipment or clothing required out of medical necessity overrules the minimum garb requirements.
  3. 3. Garb is Not:  Something to make us look stupid  Something that is hard to do  Something that has to cost you your first born child  Something that is uncomfortable  Something that makes you feel itchy Per the Book of War Garb is Not:  1.3.

Modern jeans of any color.  1.3.4. Modern hats.  1.3.5. Any fabrics with modern prints.  1.3.6. Any realistic weapons.
  4. 4. Why do we need Garb? In order for Belegarth to maintain a certain level of believability we need to wear garb. We are Belegarth MEDIEVAL Combat and garb helps us to look and feel more Medieval than jeans and a tee-shirt do. Garb is not something people made up to make you look stupid, or feel stupid. Good garb is just as or more comfortable than your mundane clothing. We are here to work with you to find a garb style that fits the medieval fantasy feel of the game and is comfortable for you.
  5. 5. Basic Garb is:  Basic garb is one step up from Minimum Garb.  It is a simple tunic with pants or a dress  It can be bought or made  It is easy to learn to do  It works with your persona if you are in to Role Play aspect of the game
  6. 6. Basic “Male” Garb  Basic “Male” garb can be  A simple t-tunic  A pair of nurses pants with side pockets removed (Neutral coloured)  Marshal Arts Pants  A pair of shoes or boots of muted colour (black, grey, brown)  A kilt or war skirt  Simple Baggy Drawstring pants As a note this is not strictly male garb, ladies are free to dress HOWEVER they want…they don’t HAVE to wear only dresses or skirts in Belegarth.
  7. 7. Basic Female Garb • Basic Female Garb is: – Peasant Skirt – Wrap Skirt – T-Tunic Dress – Simple Chemise Top – T-Tunics – Baggy Pants – Footwear that is muted in colour Female fighting garb is more or less the same as male garb, ladies can and sometimes do wear skirts to fight in, these skirts are normally modified( silts cut or gores added) to allow for better movement
  8. 8. Basic Monster Garb  I am NOT a Monster each race has different things that make them who they are this is just an overview of what I have learned about monster garb  Pants are still baggy, often tattered with patches  Patches are common place, as is “bad” sewing, seams on the outside kind of thing  If you’re a Goblyn you want to have you elbow and knees covered  If you’re a hat troll you need a hat troll hat and coat  Ogre’s arms and sometimes torso are bare  Mech Goblyns are often found wearing goggles  Bugbears wear an arm covering over the arm their God Blessed  War braids are common in monsterdom  Body Paint (each race are different coloured)  Skirts are also often tattered, and multi-coloured  Layers are common  SHINY IS IMPORTANT!!!!!
  9. 9. “Found” Garb  Found Garb is something more or less Goodwill or Thrift store garb  It is things that can pass as garb but are actually modern/mundane pieces like simple peasant tops with embroidery on them, peasant skirts, and scrubs with pockets removed  The Goodwill Tunic is part of what I consider “Found” Garb
  10. 10. The Goodwill Tunic  The Goodwill Tunic is a polo shirt, long or short sleeved, that has been turned into garb  It has had all its hems removed (sleeve and bottom)  It has had its collar and buttons removed  Put holes into the shirt where the buttons were and lace cord through them  You have a tunic that passes, its not amazing but it passes
  11. 11. Resources  The SCA is a great resource, find your local SCA group and talk to them about Arts and Sciences Nights. There will often be someone will to help teach you how to make garb  Simplicity Easy to Sew Pattern Line has many easy to sew pajama pant patterns that work well for pants  Ask around the Belegarth Boards on the Medieval Arts and Sciences Board, someone will answer you  Many Belegrim have collected resources over time, talk to someone in your realm, if they don’t have them they will know someone who does
