One of the leading sellers of fancy dress costumes in the UK believes that the continued rise of the programmes viewing figures will increase demand and sales of medieval costumes throughout the fancy dress industry.

Game of Thrones has taken the world by storm and when a phenomenon like this comes along, fancy dress companies realise that like any trend in the industry, it's going to lead to an hike in sales.

Game of Thrones was first aired on US network HBO in April 2011 and has since obtained a broad audience worldwide. The hugely popular series sold over 350,000 box-sets in the US and Canada alone within its first week, which remains a network record, as well as gaining the most digital downloads. Currently, the show is being aired on networks in no less than 76 countries across the globe. With this reputation in mind, Mega Fancy Dress realise that costumes based on the medieval time period are going to become more and more sought-after - especially amongst the Game of Thrones fan base.

Some of the medieval costumes that Mega Fancy Dress have to offer include a King Arthur Fancy Dress costume, resembling the likes of the self-confessed "Mad" King Robert Baratheon, who features heavily in the first season. The website offers a selection of many different types of costumes from what is classed as the medieval era - such other alternatives include a Black Knight, a Men's Musketeer costume, as well as an array of looks that resemble the iconic Robin Hood.

This series is not the first in its genre to capture the imagination of the public. Previous programmes such as Merlin, and The Tudors, have become huge hits for bringing somewhat of a modern twist to the medieval era - and Game of Thrones is no exception. With the viewing public of today becoming increasingly interested in shows such as these, it's no wonder that the desire for fancy dress costumes is on the rise.

Sales Director, Natasha Amin said "Game of Thrones has taken the world by storm and when a phenomenon like this comes along, fancy dress companies realise that like any trend in the industry, it's going to lead to an hike in sales. With this in mind, we are consistently looking to offer high quality costumes to our customers to correspond with the increased attraction towards fancy dress costumes that focus on both fantasy and the medieval times"

Game of Thrones Season 3 flew onto our screens in April this year and with a 4th season already commissioned, it proves that there is faith in the longevity of the programme as it heads well into 2014. If it keeps up the same levels of attention that it has already produced thus far, there's no reason why it can't go on even further - which will continue to spell good news for those in the fancy dress market.
