“It's about personality, people generally choose the costume of a persona they find interesting or fun.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
MrCostumes.com, a leading online retailer of Halloween and Renaissance costumes, announces its 2013 expanded spring-summer product line just in time for Ren Fest enthusiasts.
Renaissance Festivals, also known as Medieval Fairs, Renaissance Fairs or Ren Fests, first appeared in the U.S. in 1963 as a one-weekend fundraiser hosted by a Los Angeles school teacher. Fifty years later, there is a festival held in almost every state. The festivals include period appropriate entertainment, arts, crafts, rides, food and drink. Visitors aren't required to don a costume, but wearing one greatly enhances the experience.
So how does one dress for a Renaissance Fair? Mr. Costumes' Director of Purchasing Rob Menz explains “It's about personality, people generally choose the costume of a persona they find interesting or fun. Our job is to ensure we have a large selection of Medieval attire, so consumers have a variety of choices. These fairs have been gaining in popularity year after year, so we decided to expand the 2013 Renaissance Costume line to offer over 200 period costumes.”
The new lines delivers a plethora of choices; the men’s selection includes valiant Medieval knights, mystic sorcerers from the Middle Ages, Viking warriors and swashbuckling pirate costumes. Ladies can choose to be a Renaissance queen, fair maiden, magical fairy, Bohemian gypsy or sexy tavern wench. 21st century women are not limited to the antiquated notion of portraying only traditional female characters; they may decide to be a gallant knight, sexy pirate, Viking vixen or even a lady Robin Hood. Mr. Costumes is also popular for its extensive selection of plus size Renaissance and couples costumes.
Children of all ages love dressing up for Ren Fests and the site made sure to include them. Fairies tend to be popular among girls, with tweens favoring Tinkerbell and dark fairy attire; dress younger ladies in matching fairy costumes to make a Court of Fairies. Gothic Maiden Witch costumes, Shipwrecked Zombie Pirates and Magical Dragon baby costumes are just a few of the Renaissance themed apparel available for fairs and festival play.
Attending Medieval fairs guarantees fun for the whole family. Participating by dressing in Renaissance clothing doubles that fun; so pick a costume, get dressed up and journey back to the days of old.
