Re-enactor’s checklist


The following is a list of items each member of Warwick may wish to obtain:


Basic Garb – Basic garb for men consists of a boots, shirt, & breeches.  As you add to your wardrobe you may want to include a vest, coat, gun & gun belt, and of course a hat.

A basic woman’s wardrobe may consist of a simple dress, or a chemise, skirt and bodice.  As you expand your wardrobe you may wish to include overskirts, underskirts, corset, bloomers, hoop skirt or farthingale.


One item of clothing highly recommended for cold weather is warm clothing such as long johns, thick socks, and a warm coat.



Feast Gear - For monthly feasts, camping, and other events you will want to have your own set of feast gear.  Items should include a tankard, mug and/or goblet, plate, bowl or noggin, knife, fork, and spoon.  You may also want to obtain the following optional items:  cloth napkin(s), cloth table covering, candles and candle stick holders, serving bowls and utensils for sharing food with others.  Wood, metal, and pottery are all appropriate for feast gear.  Note: if using metal feast gear make sure it is made from a lead free alloy to avoid potential health problems.



Camping Equipment – Many of the events Warwick participates in require overnight camping.  The following is a list of items you may wish to invest in:  period tent and tent accessories (poles, ground cover, stakes, etc.), chair or stool, table, period activities to keep you busy, demo equipment (if needed), bedding, storage (remember to keep non-period items stored out of the public view), first aid kit, emergency kit, bucket, extra water.


Note:  Check with Lord Mayor Robert Rich for information on making your own period tent.


Weapons – If you choose to participate in a fighter group, you will want to make sure you have the appropriate gear and safety equipment.  Please check with the Warwick Crown Marshal, or a fight instructor for a list of these items.
