The defining item for the Toronto Sisters of JOY is the “bourrelet” headpiece. This is designed to look like a medieval head roll, while simultaneously silhouetting the shape of the observation deck on Toronto’s iconic CN Tower.
Black tights, something in a fun pattern or color, potentially matching the belt/bourrelet. Sisters wear a black fitted bodice with a plain, round crew-neck and no collar. Full-length sleeves. Full (3x) gathered ankle-length skirt.
Brothers wear a loose charcoal grey monk’s robe. A belt or sash of the Member’s choosing.
Prayer Beads, this may be rosary beads, Mardi Gras beads, a chain, anal beads.
Sisters wear a plain white, shoulder-width, collarless bib. For Brothers, the guimpe is integrated into the design of the caped cowl where it can be similarly accessorized as the Sisters’ guimpe.
Members wear a headband covering the ears entirely worn around the head from the base of the skull up to the hairline on the top of the forehead. It could be either white or in a colour to match the bourrelet.
The base of the bourrelet is covered in white cloth that is worn on an angle from the back of the head to the front. A symbol or talisman is specific to each Member is attached. Sisters and Brothers wear them on the front centre of the Bourrelet.
Fully Professed Sister may wear a veil of any colour or fabric they like. Fully Professed Brothers may wear a cowl of any colour or fabric they like.
