Costume Shop

Costumes are not required of our guests but you are certainly welcome to come in costume if you wish. That can be something as simple as a hair wreath for women or a plain, solid color peasant shirt.  Hats are recommended to protect you from sunburn and an old straw hat is a good start for looking like a peasant. Add a skirt and a wide belt and you’re on your way. Men can wear tights 🙂  or tuck black or brown pants into boots, wear a loose peasant shirt and start feeling like, well, a peasant (that is not an insult). We have information about making simple costumes on this page. Here is the best book you’ll find for creating authentic looking looks.
