We’re in the midst of a project that falls somewhere between “escape room” and “historical tour”: it’s an adventure that physically takes players across our city’s downtown to solve puzzles related to heritage sites there. The game is set in 1867 (the year of Canada’s Confederation), and at each site they visit players will meet an actor wearing period clothing who will give them clues to the mystery. (You can see a little bit more at )

We got the costumes to wear for the performance, but back in June we were taking some shots of the stuff for promotional purposes. Very excited about the costumes. 😀
