The Medieval times also known as The Middle Ages of European history are a period in history which lasted for a millennium. A lot of changes happened during this time period, the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century, the beginning of the Early Modern Period in the 16th century, the division of Western Christianity in the Reformation, the rise of humanism in the Italian Renaissance, and the beginnings of European overseas expansion.
When dressing in medieval attire keep in mind that medieval fashion during the middle Ages was dominated and highly influenced by the Kings and Queens of the era. Only the wealthy could dress in fashionable clothes. Sumptuary Laws restricted ordinary people to spend money on clothes, only royalty were allowed to wear cloth of gold and purple silk. Expensive veils were banned for lower class women. Only the wives or daughters of nobles were allowed to wear velvet, satin sable or ermine. Medieval Fashion changed with each king and queen.
Whether you want to be part of the noble class or part of the royalty there are so many costumes to choose from. Such as the Medieval Lord Costume, Medieval Maiden Costume, Medieval Queen Costume, and the Medieval Knight Costume. Make your costume unique by adding a long medieval wig or a giant medieval scythe to your Knight Costume.
