If sorcery and magic are more your style, dress up in a wizard's costume as the great wizard Merlin popularized from the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table . In one version of the legendary character told through Robert de Boron's poem Merlin , the great wizard was the son of a virgin and a devil from hell. As a half demon, Merlin was gifted with knowledge of the past and present.
As the all-knowing wizard, you'll dress in rich robes with ornate sleeve and collar detailing. Wear a coordinating conical hat to compliment your wizard's costume. Of course, no Merlin ensemble would be complete without a wig of white hair and matching beard.
