1. White ankle-length gown in an opaque, non-shiny knit fabric with high, fitted collar fastened with hooks/eyes. Gown has a white, partially open hood reaching to just below the waist (gathered rectangle style preferred), wrist-length to knuckle length bell sleeves and slits up the sides to or just below the knee. Gown may not have shoulder seams and no center front or back seam. A waist seam is allowed if hidden by the belt. There may not be any center-top seams on the sleeves. Gown should be slightly bloused over the belt at the waist. Gown should be lined using the same fabric as the dress.
2. Belt is white firm, non-shiny leather or leather-like material. The center front should come to a V-shaped point on the bottom edge and have a slightly curved dip or shallow V-shape top edge. It has at least 7 metal pieces on it, 6 elongated octagonal matching with one pentagon shape in the center front. Belt pieces should be spaced according to the wearer’s waist measurement or additional plates identical to the 7 octagonal plates may be added for an even-spaced look.
3. White leather or non-shiny vinyl flat or low (1/4″ to 1 1/2″ or .5cm to 4cm recommended) soled boots, at least mid calf high without laces or logos.
4. Hair is parted in or near the center and pulled into large buns that cover the ears. Buns are twisted, not braided. No braided hairpieces, wig with braided buns or fake hair “ear-muffs” with headband. Naturally occurring hair colors only (brown hair color recommended); no bangs; if a wig or hair pieces are used, they must be of a high quality so that they appear like real hair. Natural hair and parted wigs should have a neat, straight part in back. If a non-parted wig is used, the hair must be neatly pulled across the back of the wig without bald spots.
