Don't, and probably never will wear any of it for gaming, but I do have equipment and clothing that I suppose might count -

Newstead lorica,

a 'Agincourt' repro sword gotten for Christmas,

a repro of the presentation sabre given to Sobieski by the Pope – Christmas again,

some tunics and a cloak,

a set of plate cuisses and knee cops,

some milsurp equipment that goes bang (might make some people nervous if I carried those in, particularly if not decked out in a uniform).

Of course this is stuff obtained for other reasons (SCA, for example), but that could be used to put together 'costumes' for gaming in.

A couple of fellows at the club do have tunics they wear when playing Rorke's Drift or other Zulu War games. And there is another who has some hats to go with his Russian Civil War games when he feels like it.

If I want to re-enact, I re-enact. Gaming is another matter.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP wonders:

…do you have a matching outfit? This could be a full uniform/outfit, partial (like a BDU jacket with appropriate insignia), minimal (like a hat, patch, or pin), or even pseudo (t-/sweat-shirt or hoodie with an identifying design).

I have a few hats and a couple of jackets. Not a collector, just have a few things acquired here and there.

I kept none of my active duty uniforms (except some poopysuits that have long since retired themselves).*

I have a few costumes or clothes that would work for pulp and some scifi style forces MiB, pirate, coveralls and of course, a tux a la Bond James Bond.
* Well, I have my dad's collection of Navy ballcaps from my old ships and commands, so I guess I have more than a few hats. But I don't do any modern naval gaming, so they wouldn't apply to my forces.
