The most popular of all the women's Renaissance costumes has to be that of the fair maiden or Renaissance Lady. These costumes are what many women see when they think of the Renaissance, and bring to mind such characters as Maid Marian. These Halloween costumes are long dresses, always with long belled sleeves. They are made to look like velvet or other rich fabrics, and come in many and varied rich colors. A corset style top is typical, as is the appearance of both an underskirt and over-skirt. Sashes and adornments are usually in silver or gold, and a matching headpiece is requisite.

Queens are also part of the women's Renaissance costume lineup, most notably the Queen Elizabeth and Marie Antoinette costumes. The Queen Elizabeth costumes are generally a play on the Renaissance maiden costumes, though with richer embellishments and, best of all, a tall upstanding white collar. The usual Marie Antoinette costumes tend to be a bit more risque and sexy than historical, taking the traditional corset and pannier style dress and shortening it dramatically while also lowering the bust-line.

Peasant lady costumes are also popular and recognizable, with their white blouses and corseted vests worn over long skirts. Though usually of darker colors, these costumes can be just as much fun to wear as the more elaborate Renaissance costumes. Barbarian warrior women also find their place here, with short, fur-trimmed dresses and matching headgear, accessorized with a broadsword. And no Renaissance would be complete without a dark and evil Wicked Queen, with one of the most elaborate dresses of them all. No matter what a woman has in mind, she is sure to find it with women's Renaissance costumes.
