Required Apparel - Dress appropriate to the period 1860 to 1899.(No duds???? Check out the links to our favorite Sutlers.) The minimum requirements are cowboy hat, jeans or skirt (no designer jeans of any kind), and long sleeve shirt or blouse with button front. (If it's a hot day partner, roll those sleeves up.) Victorian style clothing can be worn, such as derbies and high top hats, old style suits, etc. for the gents and bonnets, feathered hats, long dresses and high top button shoes for the ladies. It's not mandatory to dress as a cowboy. Indian scout, cavalry officer, blacksmith, doctor, school teacher, judge, storekeeper or undertaker of the "period" is OKEY DOKEY. Is the old gold sack low???? Well, Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. are good sources of clothing to get you started.
