Twenty Four – Renaissance Halloween Costumes: Realistic Costumes for Lady Or Pauper

A strong selling point of Renaissance Halloween costumes is that they are more versatile than other character personas. Renaissance Fairs are popular throughout the country and to be part of the fun, this historic celebration requires a costume. Lovely maidens in stylish gowns and veils and bawdy village wenches in peasant clothing abound. You can choose a character that is lower class, of royalty, good or evil – the wide variety of options for Renaissance Halloween costumes of part of the appeal.

It will be to your benefit to create a quality costume. Wear it for Halloween and re-use it during Renaissance fairs held during Spring and Summer months. Identifying clothing worn during that period is easy due to the vast amount of information that exists for the period. Whether researching on Google or through a visit to your local Library you will be able to find apparel that signifies that time period. http://www.costumecauldron.com/Adult-Renaissance-Medieval-Costumes.html

You will be assuming a specific role in the society with Renaissance Halloween costumes. You may be of common stock such as a peasant with a bare subsistence income. Or would you prefer the part of a king, queen, prince or princess? You might be Robin Hood or one of his merry men or choose the dark side as a common thief

More research will add greater historical detail to your costume. High society would wear rich colors with women flaunting sweeping dresses and tall hats adorned with floating veils of various lengths. Fabrics used might be light and airy for the ladies and heavy and dark in color for the men of the time. http://www.costumecauldron.com/shop/halloween-costume/Medieval–Renaissance-Costumes-title0-p-1-c-341.html

Peasant clothing for a woman could consist of a plain colored work dress, usually in grey or brown. Add props by carrying baskets or water jugs at your side. Face paint can be used to create the appearance of a long day working the field or time spent in the barn, tending the animals.

Men’s Renaissance Halloween costumes will also very. Common peasants wore mostly the same neutral colors, brown tones and grays. A straw hat could be worn to block excessive sunlight. The dirtier your clothing appears, the more realistic it will be. Hygiene back then was not anywhere near what it is today, many only bathed a few times a year. This look can be recreated through the use of paints and clothing wear. Please, for the courtesy of those who will come in close proximity of you, do not go for the real thing and forgo regular bathing. While we can appreciate historical accuracy, that’s just downright nasty!

For royalty, whether male or female characters, costume colors are deep and rich. Royalty was adorned in the richest hues and jewels and may wear the associated crown. Ladies of the court wore slightly paler colors, tall pointed head wear that was often tied on for stability. Jewelry was gaudy and showy rather than delicate or understated. Cheap costume jewelry is perfect for Renaissance Halloween costumes for both men and women of the moneyed classes.

Fans of Renaissance Fairs will get their money’s worth of wear from a period correct costume. It’s worth spending the money to create a costume that fits well and suits the character you’ve chosen to play. Your personality will be the most convincing element of your Renaissance Halloween costume so choose a character that suits you. Edited by Hetsil Protage

Fifteen – Nurse Halloween Costumes: Bumbling or Giggly

Along with the doctor, nurse Halloween costumes are very popular and can be created to take on a variety of different tones. These can be fun and entertaining at any Halloween get together, especially when partnered with a “doctor”. Be as detailed or simple as you like with your look. What goes into the most basic nurse Halloween costumes?

The only choice to make is what type of sexy nurse Halloween costumes you want to wear. Comfortable surgical scrubs are one possibility while the standard white uniform dress is another standard choice. With a surgical mask or little nursing cap and some rubber gloves you have a costume with little effort expended. You can add other props as you want from tongue depressors to syringes and none of these accessories are expensive or hard to find. http://www.costumecauldron.com/shop/halloween-costume/Doctor–Nurse-Costumes-title0-p-2-c-349.html

Choose your character and then look into the wide range of accessories available to build on the character. Tongue depressors can be used in a provocative way or you might carry a large candy thermometer. Surgical nurses might have fake blood on their clothing and tote a severed limb. You might want a clipboard but what you write on it will depend on what character you are playing.

A short and form-fitting lab coat is a must for the sexy nurse. How short is up to you. High heels are needed for this costume and a blond wig adds a nice touch. For this nurse Halloween costume you want to use a heavy hand with makeup. Bright lipstick, long polished nails and a significant layer of eye makeup bring the sexy nurse to life. http://www.costumecauldron.com/Adult-Naughty-Nurse-Costumes.html

A terrifying nurse does not have to be a sexy nurse, although the two can be combined. A set of scrubs works just fine for this style, and they are far more comfortable as you move around at Halloween parties or trick or treating! Add some fake blood on your uniform and hands, maybe even a few smears on your face to look as though you have been a very busy nurse. The more twisted and terrible looking your tools, the more scary you will appear. Go for the Silent Hill look by adding a bit of rust on those metal pieces (this can be done with spray paint, if you do not mind painting on your props).

The nurse look can be altered in a number of different ways. You can combine the sexy nurse with the scary one. The look can also be “zombified” by giving your costume a few undead touches. Deep shadowing around the eyes and cheekbones and pale flesh tones will work. Many costume stores and retailers sell special effects kits that can be added to create three dimensional wounds or rotting effects as well.

Maybe you just want to be a normal nurse. This is an easy costume when time is short. It’s easily recognized, always respected and cost effective if you have a nurse friend willing to loan you a uniform or lab coat for the day.

No matter how you personalize the character a nurse is an easy part to play. You can vary the look, be a naughty and sexy tease or an evil nurse out to cause as much pain as possible. With or without a partner you will be easy to recognize in your uniform and can fit into any group or party. Except perhaps for the most naughty nurse Halloween costumes your costume will not offend or shock anyone. If you love Halloween but don’t have the time to spend on elaborate costume preparations, just be a nurse and have a great evening. Edited by Hetsil Protage
