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?

ABOUT

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!
