Clothing Exhibition at Minohi Event
- Treasure-laden caravans may snake their way toward distant and exotic
lands but here, at the far end of the Silk Road, it is time to
celebrate the midwinter festival of the snake. Come, travelers, brush
off the dust of the journey, take a cup of tea and show us the finery
in your packs!
There will be a Silk Road Costuming Exhibition at the Mi-no-Hi
Festival, Feb. 28, 2009, in the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands
Participants are encouraged to show off garb from Oriental worlds and
other cultures that traveled the Silk Road for the pleasure of Their
Royal Majesties, Christopher and Morgen, and for the assembled
populace. Those whose skill with fabric and needle rises above the
rest may be honored with favor from Their Majesties, the admiration
of a panel of judges or the adoration of the assembled crowd.
On a 4x6 card or equivalent sheet of paper, participants should
please include the following information:
Country of origin/culture:
Brief description of outfit:
