Since this is an immersive activity all participants must wear a medieval-fantastic inspired costume. Please avoid anachronisms such as watches, cell phones, plastic items, water bottle, cameras, etc. Do not hesitate to look up ideas on the internet for your costume and accessories. Our event is medieval and fantasy inspired, which gives you a certain freedom to explore with your costume. All fantasy inspirations are honored, such as the Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian, etc.

 

However, there are some things to avoid:

- White running shoes (it's best to find leather shoes)

- Jeans

- T-Shirts

- Sunglassses (unless prescribed)

- Watches

- Cell phones, mp3 players, iPad, iPhone and other electronic gadgets must remain in your car, they won't have any use on the site.

- Bring a mug to avoid walking with a can of beer or soft drink or juice boxes.

- Camouflage strollers with fabrics like burlap.
