The middle ages spanned a wide time period, from the 5th century to the 16th century. It was a time of the Crusades, scientific advancements, and the Renaissance. You can choose from a number of adult medieval costumes from this time period. Looking for ideas? We've put together a list of adult medieval costumes for you.
For couples, dress up as Romeo and Juliet. As Juliet, you'll be positively romantic in a Renaissance gown of crushed velvet and a cap with a veil. For Romeo, show off your charm in knickers, a panne shirt, and a feathered cap.
If you're a natural entertainer, dress up as a jester in a bi-colored tunic, a pointed jester's hat, and curled toed jester shoes.
For a group, get together and dress up as the Three Musketeers. As one of the Three Musketeers, you'll have a wide brimmed black hat, tunic with crest, black pants, and black boots.
Adult medieval costumes call for the right accessories. As Juliet, you'll be ravishing in a wig of braided long hair. Other adult medieval costumes like the Three Musketeers call for a sword for each courageous character.
