The renaissance festival is held every year. And there are so many
people wearing in their costumes to attend it. Have you even gone there?
Do you have any idea about what to wear to attend it? In the following
article, I will illustrate you some good ideas on the renaissance clothing
for a renaissance festival.
In women’s clothing in the medieval style, there are mainly two kinds:
the wealthy women and the middle class women which also refers to the
working class women. For the wealthy women, there are numerous kinds of
clothes they can choose. The corsets, bodices, skirts, over-skirts,
farthingales, kirtles, gowns, head-dresses and cornets are available.
All those medieval dresses
are charming and alluring. The colors in the costumes always apply the
plum, red, blue and green. There are, of course, some other colors, but
these are the most classic ones. The fabrics are better than for the
middle class women. It includes silk, flax linen and wool. Theses are
hard to get materials in the medieval period. And other than that, the
detail and the workmanship for medieval clothing
is more exquisite than for the normal women.
And for the middle class women costumes, one can choose the dresses and
corsets and skirts in the colors of black, gray, orange, yellow and
violet which are easily extracted from berries or plants. Generally
speaking, alternative apparel
in medieval are really alluring. The material and the detail will not
be as delicate as the clothes for the wealthy women, but it show a close
relation to the nature.
Linen shirt, doublet, jerkin, breeches, stockings, flat hat, cloak,
cape, short leather boots, moccasins, and sword and dagger are worn by
men in the medieval alternative clothingstyle.
And when it comes to the color part, you can select whichever you like.
Cause there is not big gap on the use of colors.
There was no such thing as “play clothes” for children during the
Renaissance. They simply wore miniature versions of what their parents
wore. Alternatively, a child could get by in a plain muslin gown or
chemise until the age of four or five.
The renaissance festival is becoming more and more popular. Every year,
there is a very large amount of people attend it. Nothing but one is
needed if you go and attend this renaissance festival: you should dress
up yourself in a very unique way with charming alternative fashion clothing.
And all the above I mentioned are some costume idea to dress as a
renaissance people or medieval people. And I hope it will be helpful for
you and could make you look great on the renaissance festival.
