In need of a costume?

We highly recommend contacting Veronika Stangl for your costuming needs. Veronika has made high quality costumes for A Meeting of Monarchs run 1. The dress pictured to the left was made by her.

We also highly recommend The Leprechaun for very detailed costumes that may require some leather work (but they also make costumes without leather). Gabriele usually makes costumes for larpers but has also created costumes for movies such as the Pirates of the Caribbean.
