We know what you’re thinking: Pirates at a Ren Faire?! The pirates that are found at the Renaissance Faire are not related to swashbuckling pirates, but though up from pure fantasy. If you want to explore a fantasy character, dressing as a pirate might be your best bet. Pirates at the Ren Faire are normally found wearing the color black, and carrying around feathered hats. Wenches are usually covered in silk and pounds of jewels, much like any pirate would be. But, remember, since these Ren Faire pirates are fantasy characters, you can create a persona straight from your own imagination.
So, if you want to create the ultimate Renaissance pirate, then consider shopping Spirit Halloween for your new costume! From Renaissance accessories to pirate costumes, you can blend the two styles together as much or as little as you want. Add some accessories like jewels and gold coins, and make sure to top off the whole costume with a totally awesome pirate hat. The possibilities for Renaissance pirates are endless, especially when you shop for your next Renaissance costume at Spirit Halloween. And sure, you may not be made out of gold, but your amazing style is still sure to be the true treasure of the Renaissance Faire!
Another popular costume you’ll find at a Ren Faire is a gypsy. If you are a wandering, carefree person, this is the perfect costume for you. Just like the pirate option, you have free reign to create whatever kind of fantasy character you want when you dress up as a gypsy! If you want to create an authentic look, stick to colorful shirts and blouses with skirts or pants. Vibrant colors are key in any beautiful gypsy costume, but steer clear of neon. In addition, stay away from fire engine red, because Gypsy’s associate this color with blood, which is connected to bad luck. Make sure to add a BUNCH of jewelry (male or female), and you’ll be ready for your next Ren Faire extravaganza!

While “wench” can refer to a female pirate, it’s also the general term for a young woman. And the most popular style among Ren Faire participants is for women to wear long skirts, while men wear tunic shirts and leggings. This might not be what you’re used to (especially for men, probably) but if you want to stay comfortable at the Ren Faire, then this may just be the way to go. If you’re a woman over thirteen years of age, and want to follow all of the “rules” of Ren Faire costuming, then make sure that your hair is covered by some sort of headgear if you’re going to the faire as a wench.
A peasant never threw out old clothing, but instead paired it with new clothing to sort of “recycle,” for lack of a better word. So if you’re creating a peasant look, then you may want to layer your clothing and stick to muted earth tones as your color choices. You don’t have to worry about being as regal as any nobility, but you’ll still have to play your own part as the perfect commoner. And you won’t have to worry about finding old or worn clothing for your look, because Spirit’s selection of Renaissance Faire costumes includes a selection of plain and simple looks that are absolutely perfect for any peasant or wench.
