THE UNOFFICIAL GUIDE TO BUYING EMPIRE LRP KIT ON THE HIGH STREET
Sometimes you just wanna pick up your kit with the weekly shop, right?
While it'd be lovely if everybody could buy their larp kit bespoke made to their measurements from some of the very talented creators in the LARP community... Sometimes it just isn't possible, especially when you're just starting out.
Even people that have been in the hobby for years find the odd thing here and there on the high street, in the supermarket, or when idly browsing well-known retailer websites. So this is my attempt to create a guide to kitting out your entire Empire LRP life from the high street or common retailers.
I'm mindful that fast fashion is not a sustainable industry, and where possible I would suggest supporting small businesses, artists, crafters and artisans if you can - but I would love to see more people in the hobby, and kitting up when you're low on time, money or both is a barrier I can hopefully help people overcome!

THE OFFICIAL EMPIRE LRP WIKI
No, seriously, have a look at this
Profound Decisions publish a game wiki containing setting, plot, design and rules info. Highly recommend looking it over before attending your first event.
EMPIRE LRP COSTUMES GROUP
For asking questions about costumes and props
An unofficial group of (mostly) Empire players, where we discuss purchases, things we've made, and other related stuff. Great place to go if you have a question like "where can I get this kind of fabric".
