The fifth and final layer consists of the thick waistband so characteristic of Cerian clothing, a pair of sturdy grass sandals, and a string of Merofian Cord.  The waistband is made of the same material as the Ryarji socks.  It helps to hold the bottom part of the cloak and to keep the middle section nice and warm.  The sandals are flexible and comfortable, excellent for walking long distances for the socks provide all the cushioning and insulation ever wanted in walking gear.  When visiting other people's houses, it's traditional for the sandals to be removed, but the socks to remain worn.  The cord is simply there for decorative purposes.

Despite it's rather heavy appearance, the costume weighs less than 2 pounds all together.
