The Demetra costumes are based on the 50s and 60s taste.
“A man can wear whatever he wants
for he will always be a woman’s optional.”
After the “Van Allen” disaster and the resulting social drift many facts hadn’t happened in this history
: no sexual revolution shook the 1968 and no miniskirt changed the feminine dress code. Once the wealth got stable again, the sense of fashion pointed to that time full of hope that were the ‘50s: knee-length skirts and frill fabrics for a celebration of femininity. Women don’t feel like changing outfits that make them feel beautiful and comfortable. The male dress code goes along, elegance and taste are glorified: the classy Cary Grant’s style coexist with the sensual and transgressive Marlon Brando and James Dean looks.
Considering the dystopian nature of this event and the return of the vintage among trends, it will be very easy to set up a beautiful outfit made with “historically incorrect”, and yet larp appropriate, garments for both men and women. You can take some hints from this Pinterest gallery.
We’ll also create a Facebook group for advices and hints: the staff will be happy to help you!
