Renaissance Halloween Costumes: Double the Value
September has just started, which means that Halloween is not too far away. As we slowly enter October, the entire atmosphere will start to change. Warm and calm nights will fade to cool and breezy evenings. The leaves will start to turn, rustle, and fall with the wind. The spirits of October come to life as we approach All Hallow's Eve.
There are some traditions that are associated with October 31st that you don't have to worry about just yet. These are activities like: Carving your Jack-O-Lantern, purchasing your trick-or-treat candy, putting up the cornstalks, going to haunted houses, and looking for your “Spooky Sounds of Halloween” CD. But there is one tradition that you don't want to put off too long: Deciding upon your costume! It can take some time to think about what you're going to be, find what you need to make your costume, and/or get your costume actually made or shipped to you.
At PearsonsRenaissanceShoppe.com, we always suggest that people consider dressing up in Renaissance Halloween costumes
. Shocking, I know! Halloween for the people living in the Renaissance era was a lot different than it is for us today. Today, Halloween means parties, haunted houses, scary movies, and pranks. In the Renaissance period, Halloween signified that the barrier between the mortal world and the spirit world was at its weakest point for the entire year. On this night, people were actually concerned that evil spirits would enter our realm and perform sinister deeds.
This is why we believe that wearing Renaissance Halloween costumes
is an awesome idea: Not only will you look great, but you can also put yourself more into the mindset of what Halloween originally symbolized!
Renaissance Halloween Costumes Double for Renaissance Faires
There is yet another benefit to Renaissance Halloween costumes
: You can use them again if you go to a Renaissance Faire. Most Halloween costumes get used one time and then get stowed away. Why pay for something you're only going to use one time? Get double the value out of your Halloween Renaissance costumes by wearing them to Renaissance Faires, Medieval reenactments, or as costumes for theatrical productions. Cared for properly, your costume can last for many years!
