Completing my Bucket List

Preparation for College of Wizardry – Cowlarp

It’s 151 days til College of Wizardry (Cowlarp), and I’m already excited like a kid at Christmas. Over the next 5 months I’ll be bringing you my updates as I prepare for my first ever Larp event.

For those that don’t know Larp stands for Live Action Role Play.  This has been on my bucket list for a while now, but with there being nothing local to me I was waiting til something just right came up.


Then last year I saw an advert on Facebook for Cowlarp (College of Wizardry Live Action Role Play).  I was so excited about it but couldn’t find anyone to go with, so let my dreams of being a wizard go to the back of my head for a while.  Then a few months ago I saw the add again.  This time for March 2017.  I shared the post on Facebook with no interest again, so thought Screw it! I’m going!  Wizards and Larping are not David’s cuppa tea so I bought my ticket for one.  I wasn’t missing out just because I had no one to go with.


A bit more on Cowlarp.

College of Wizardry is a four-day Wizard School larp event, where you can act out your dreams of being a student witch or wizard at a beautiful fairytale castle in Poland. Surrounded by around 135 like-minded people, at College of Wizardry you will:

  • Attend classes as a witch or wizard and learn the magical arts

  • Be selected to represent one of the five ancient Houses of Czocha Castle

  • Explore the castle and meet the magical creatures that roam the grounds

  • Make new friends and form long lasting bonds with like-minded people

  • Get into discussions, stir up shenanigans, and play games

  • Perhaps even a little (in-character) romance?

  • Spend 3 nights at a castle in Poland and have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure


Whilst I have to patiently wait to attend I can start preparing what I need.

  • Wand (for spells)
  • Costumes
  • A ball gown for the ball
  • Papers
  • Notebooks
  • Ink/Pens etc
  • Potion Bottles
  • Spell ingredients
  • Jewellery
  • Hats/Scarfs

Can you think of anything else I may need to take to College of Wizardry?


The event I’m attending is now sold out, but there are new dates released over at
