Historical and Religious Costumes

You read Lord of the Rings - They Live it.


"Dark age Europe meets Tolkien's Middle Earth in a safe and action-packed national live action battle game."

Most garb worn in the Dagorhir falls into the 'medieval' or Dark Ages time period. Robes (wizard and open robes) are also popular. We sell Elf ears.

Garb for Dagorhir

Dagorhir costume regulations are fairly simple, there are no character classes. The flavor of garb that a person wears is typically demonstrative of their persona, location, or interests. They could carry a Dagorhir sword or Dagorhir weapon. Membership includes people with both historical and Tolkien leanings. Within the historical arena, there is everything ranging from Vikings to Romans to Celts and more.

The ONLY event Garb the World regulaly merchants at is a Dagohir/Amtgard event Battle for the Ring in Chino, California during January. We sell a lot of items at incredible bargains. If you go to the event please stop by our booth and say hi to Julles or Sonya (our fighter names). And contact us if you would like us to bring anything particular to the event.
