MEN: Medieval/Renaissance Halloween Costumes

Men who are aficionados of world history will enjoy suiting up in a Medieval or Renaissance costume. Spanning nearly 1000 years from the 5th through 16th centuries, the medieval period is typically recorded as the time period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Renaissance period and European expansion overseas. The feudal system and an order of knights is a well-known element of the medieval period, or Middle Ages. The culturally rich Renaissance period conjures up images of royal courts; lords elaborate society events and an appreciation of the arts. Men’s costumes from both eras have a lot of old world image to impart and your next event be it a Halloween party, theater production or outdoor reenactment-type faire.

MEN: Medieval/Renaissance Costume Ideas

A chivalrous knight is one of the most popular medieval costumes for men. A knight costume features either the early armor consisting of chain-mail or the later armor style which was later developed into the complete suits of armor which are known today as the stereotypical “knights in shining armor”. Knights wore tunics over their armor and carried a shield featuring a distinctive coat of arms specific to each family. Not all medieval and renaissance era men were of a noble background, so Robin Hoodcostume would also make an great renaissance costume for a jaunt out and about in Sherwood Forrest. Maid Marion and Friar Tuck can join you as you take from the rich and give to the poor.
