Yes, "The Shadow Court", from the future dystopian world of the Psyche Corporation is now real and has come into this plane of reality from the dream world of Psyche Chimere, the first Shadow Queen of Psyche Corporation. In her own immortal words:

"You’re correct in choosing this place

To petition for divine grace

You've always wanted too much

I can give you what you seek

But I’m no kindly sort of Queen, and

I demand to know what you would sacrifice to me?

Sacrifice to me!"

OK. Soooo what does that mean exactly? Well don't expect to be asked for a credit card number here. Instead, to become a member of the Shadow Court of Psyche Corporation you have give us something a bit more personal. Now don't run off so fast. It won't cost any fingers or toes, not generally anyway. A poem, a bit of fan fiction, a sketch of angelbots, a photo of yourself cosplaying a creature from the Psyche Corporation World. What is even more important is that you spread the word about Psyche Corporation' s wonderful music, fascinatingly bizarre lyrics, helping advertise "Scheduled Indoctrinations" (aka concerts and performance) and directly contribute to spreading the Empire of the Shadow Queen throughout this time-space continuum through internet traffic, awakening of the populace through physical medium such as flyers and sidewalk chalk messages, and especially through direct word of mouth communications!

Articles Showing Extreme Styles Suitable For Psyche Corp LARPS

If you know the fictional back story for Psyche Corporation, you will know that the Angelbot era (think battle hardened winged cyborg rulers & police) and especially the even more decadent era that followed their downfall, included a culture with such overwhelming levels of technology and power available that clothing styles became rather extreme.  In other words, if you want your dress to include a dolphin tank with live specimens swimming around you. the designers would make it happen.  A few transparent glass-steel panels here, and a few anti-grav units there and voila, a moving ocean aquarium that showed as much or as little details of the wearer's anatomy as desired, behind the fish of course.   Well, you won't find anything quite that extreme at this Goth festival in Germany, or the Romantic Vampyre type party the article is about, but the clothing styles and costuming are so outlandish and beautiful that I thought it would inspire costumers and LARPers to just take a look at what they brought forward!  You may get a few good ideas from these people's incredible designs that will help you design your own LARP attire.

A hearty thanks goes out to La Carmina, for this one!

For more extreme styles that might be interesting for Psyche Corporation LARPs here is another festival I find totally fascinating in terms of costuming alone!

For the Psyche corporation Larps, keep in mind that most people of the era were not  Angelbots, or more precisely, retired/mercenary Angelbots (since the war pretty much ended their reign depending on your timeline) but even angelbots, ar enow permitted to wear as elaborate or bizarre attire as they wish, and can even have their functional wings made retractable now that laws against such things have been repealed.  By the same token, elaborately dressed citizens can have functional or decorative wings attached to their anatomy in any fashion or combinations desired.

On the other hand, if you want to come as one the classic Angelbots, themselves...
