Women's Renaissance costumes are always among the favorites at Halloween, because for many women they bring to mind the time of knights and ladies, of chivalry, and of maidens fair. For those women, Renaissance costumes are a way to live a dream of a different lifetime in a fun and stylish way for one night on Halloween. These costumes offer so much for so many women, and are always great to consider.

Medieval Renaissance Costumes

The most popular of all the women's Renaissance Medieval 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 decorated in regal embellishments and decorations. Queens are also part of this category lineup, most notably Queen Elizabeth and Marie Antoinette costumes. Some costumes tend to be a bit more risque and sexy than historical, taking the traditional corset and pannier style dress and shortening it dramatically. There is a huge variety of Renaissance and Medieval outfits to choose from. Check out our listing of accessories and jewelry to see what else you can add.
