What are some cool ideas for a renaissance fair costume?
I’m going to a renaissance fair in 2 weeks and need a costume! I don’t have a lot of money to spend on a costume or gorgeous gown. My budget is about $50. Does anyone know any cool costume ideas for a lady? I’m thinking of just finding a long gypsy looking skirt, and maybe a corset. I know it’s not creative, but this is only my second time at a renaissance fair, and I’m even more excited this time :-)
Last year I basically through a bunch of stuff together that I thought looked medieval-ish. I wore a long ruby gybsy type dress, and added lots of gypsy looking gold jewelry.
I want to do something for beautiful this year. So far I’ve only come up with buying a skirt, and buying garland flowers for my hair once I get to the fair.
If anyone doesn’t know what garlands are, they’re basically a flower headdress that women wear on their heads at the festivals::
And Another example
And another :-)
Do you guys know any creative ideas that I can make my costume with? This year my look is going towards the pretty, feminine, flowery, magical look….Very soft but sexy at the same time. Last year I did the wench/gypsy/mistress/tavern wench look. Thanks everyone!
