Attending that renaissance festival but don’t know what to wear? That’s easy!

If you’re planning to attend a renaissance event and are still stomped about what you should wear, then I’ve got good news for you! Alot of men are going through the same thing and it’s not a wonder why: not all men are stylish and most are comfortable with a shirt and a pair of jeans. And while Tristan clothing or Tudor clothes are a good option, some would still want to go forward and play pretend their

That’s why we’ve prepared medieval costume ideas for men to help you decide about what to wear:

1. Monk

Monk costumes are the easiest to reproduce because monks then wore simple brown robes. Plus, monk costumes aren’t that common in renaissance faires, so the chances you’re gonna bump against another monk is relatively small. You can accessorize this costume further by adding a leather bag or pouch around your waist.

2. Wizard

Who never dreamed of magical powers and the ability to control the four elements? Wizards are perfect costumes because they relive the magic of the medieval times through colourful costumes and creative props. You can wear simple black robes or go for more detailed costumes available online. Wizard costumes can be accessorized with plastic or wooden wands and even small pouches around the waist.

3. Knight

While it might not be possible to grab a noble steed to accompany your over-all costume, knights are a romantic choice to go for. Not only are they women’s favourite, they also exude masculinity. In renaissance faires, knights are a common choice because of their active participation and visibility during the medieval times. Knights costumes are not hard to find, since they are available in most costume shops. You can complement your costume with a realistic shield and a silver sword. Just make sure you don’t chop somebody’s head off.

4. Prince Charming

My personal bias with the prince charming costume is because it is simple and yet, elegant at the same time. Prince Charming costumes are available online for purchase and though they might seem plain, the fact that they are, every girl’s dream, makes this one good choice for a costume.
