Where and How I Store My Garb

I'm a garb horse, as you have probably figured out. While not every garment I've made for myself is still around or currently being used, I've still got a lot of clothing in fairly regularly event rotation. Add in headdress, shoes, and accessories, and there's a fairly sizable amount of stuff that needs a home.

Over the years, as my garb collection has grown, my solution for storing all of it has changed. There was a time, many many moons ago, when everything I had could fit in a smallish plastic tub. As I gained more garb, I went through phases where my stuff had no "home", which made things super frustrating when I wanted to pack for an event. Now, my garb and other personal kit items are stored in specific places, and finding things (assuming they were put away) has gotten a lot easier.
