Medieval and Renaissance Maiden and Queen Costumes for Women

InCharacter Costumes Women's Renaissance Maiden Costume
California Costumes
Lady In Waiting Costume
Whether you are heading to a renaissance fair, glamming up for Halloween or heading to a Game of Thrones themed party, the maidens and royalty of the years gone by make a fantastic costume theme. There is an abundance of costumes out there, which can make sifting through them a bit of a process, so to help you out I've narrowed it down to my top five favorites. Let's take a look! Most of these costumes are also available in the UK and EU here.

To start off, take a look at the lovely InCharacter Costumes Renaissance Maiden costume featured above. I just love the velveteen look of the material on this dress, and the two tones of deep and rich colors of this outfit make it look incredibly regal. Each costume comes with the dress and the headpiece with the attached veil.

California Costumes Elegant
Renaissance Lady Costume
Next up, we have the Lady in Waiting costume by California Costumes, a pro costume making company that I frequently use. Haven't been disappointed yet! I love the hanging sleeves, the chequered corset pattern and the faux-underskirt on this costume - everything about this look is subtle but beautiful. Each set of this amazing costume comes with the dress and the matching crown. 

If you want a costume that is especially dainty, then take a look at the elegant and feminine baby blue costume on the left. With gentle colors and delicate embroidery, you are sure to stand out from the crowd. Each set of this costumes comes with dress with the attached golden capelet, the jewel pin for the centre of the chest part, and the half-crown headpiece. That's everything you need to look incredible!

Each of these costumes (and the ones below!) would definitely benefit from you picking up a petticoat to go under the skirt. Here is a great one for you to check out. This will give the skirt lift and volume which will accentuate your hips. Petticoats will also grant the costume a more authentic theme, as they were very common in women's outfits back in the day.

Renaissance Medieval Fleur de
Lis Dress Costume
Featured above is definitely the most regal of the medieval costumes that I've seen, a beautiful cream and purple gown with puffy sleeves and stunning embroidery. Each set of this costume comes with the dress with hanging sleevelets and the crown headpiece with attached veil.

For a great 1500's look, you want to take a peek at yonder Fleur de Lis costume on the right. It's a lovely piece with a gorgeous French style pattern and an elegant lace up back. This costumes only comes with the dress - if you want to billowing white sleeves look you can get a chemise separately here. This costume is also available in navy blue. 

So there you go! Those were my top five favorite Medieval and Renaissance themed costumes for women. I hope you found one that is perfect for you and have a lot of fun dressing up.
