Bloody Harvest of Pomona costume

I got the first of my castings for Intercon at last! I will be playing Livia Carbo in the Bloody Harvest of Pomona. To costume for this Ancient Roman game, I decided to take the same tack I used for the Ancient Greek game. I researched what Roman women wore-- a chiton-like dress called a stola --and went on eBay to find dresses that the appropriate styling and details. I concentrated on the gathering at the shoulders that wraps over each side of the bust, cinching just beneath it, and the flowing silhouette. I also wanted a nice color, definitely not black or white. This is what I ended up with.

It's a fairly loose interpretation, I know. Especially the bling. But I like the long flowing pleats, and the drapey cowl back. It does bear a fair resemblance to the costuming in the Masterpiece Theater "I, Claudius" miniseries, which works for me. I also want to put my hair up in a way that is suggestive of the Roman fashion. I'll have to do some research on that, and practice. But I'm reasonably happy with it.

I'm really excited for this game! I'm playing Titus Varro, so I will probably be hanging around you a lot. Does my employer have a dress code I should be aware of?

Huh, there's no Titus Varro on my sheet. But I would be incredibly happy to interact with you during the game!

As for dress code, go crazy. I'm sure we all will by the end!

I'm one of the Carbo family bodyguards.
