What is Medieval Clothing?

When we think of medieval clothing, we usually think of British drama actors dressed in tunics, cloaks and jackets with intricate embroidery that always means something, or with shirts that are laced and have crisscrossed patterns for fastening.

Medieval refers to the period between the 5th and 6th centuries. This period did witness stitching but it remained somewhat simplistic even when there was a great deal of artistry to the designs and embroidery. Men were often seen wearing knee-length linen and their tunics were made from an unrefined woolen material. For the winter seasons, cloaks and jackets were layered and for summers, the light tunics were more common. Women wore large gowns that were cinched at the waist. The construction of the gowns was much more simplistic as it gave way to the design of the elaborate French gowns and dresses seen in the 15th and 6th centuries and especially the Elizabethan era.

What is LARP? 

LARP is the acronym/slang derivation for the everyday use of the term Live Action Role Play. LARP refers to the physical portrayal of the character from games based on medieval times and consists of the same elements as period dramas. Live Action Role Playing is a hobby and has a considerably large target audience.

If you have ever heard of Dungeons and Dragons, then you know just the kind of crowd we are referring to. There is a great deal of magic, fantasy and literary influence involved. LARP is the ‘nerdiest’ you can get, so you have to bring your very best. Just like in theatre, the character taken from a game has a purpose, a storyline, a righthand, a nemesis and most importantly, a pre-determined concept that has to be adopted and executed when LARP-ing. Role-playing events are organized to create a specific setting that caters to the storylines and contributing elements of the different characters involved. There are many rules to follow and the most important one is the accuracy of the costumes or the ‘garments’, because it helps create the ambiance required to role-play.
