With Halloween already on the horizon, the best time to browse and buy your costume is now. When you’re a woman looking for the perfect costume, you want to first decide the type that you’re going for.
Are you looking for something funny or serious? Something modern or old fashioned? Some of the most popular costumes this year are related to older time periods in history such as the ones that feature kings, queens and knights in shining armor.
But the most popular costume for women this year is the Deluxe Renaissance Lady Costume and it’s sure to garner you plenty of compliments. One great thing about this costume is that it’s available in both regular and plus size.
This is a floor length dress in a rich purple color. The material of the dress is crushed velvet and it has plenty of give to it, which means the dress will fit different body sizes quite well. The dress does offer plenty of warmth so you’ll be able to fight the chill of the night if you live in a colder climate.
The front sides of the dress are lined with a thin ribbon of material that’s set on a pale background. This allows the design on the material to stand out. The bodice of the dress is done in a corset style and features several rows of lacing.
These tie into a bow at the very last row. The neckline of the costume is a square neck that’s decorated in the same material that lines the front of the dress. This is a long sleeve dress and the sleeves end in wide sleeves like the women wore back in the medieval times.
Around the upper arms on each sleeve are bands that feature the same design as shown on the front of the dress. The headband and shoes do not come as part of this costume but can be purchased separately.
If you’re looking for a renaissance costume in another style, you might want to consider the California Costumes Women’s Lady In Waiting costume. This is also a floor length dress that’s made of 100% polyester.
The dress comes with an underskirt. The top layer of the dress is royal purple while the bottom layer is green. The top of this costume is green trimmed in white ribbon at the collar and waist. The sides of the top are in the same purple color as the skirt.
The sleeves of the top are long and are in green with the same design that’s featured as is shown on the center of the top. Overlaying the sleeves are royal purple wing sleeves that are puffed at each of the tops. A gold crown with jewels is included with this costume.
