These Robin Hood fancy dress costumes are ideal for many different types of fancy dress party. They can fit in to a historical theme, a fictional characters theme or even something like a Disney theme fancy dress party. This can also be a great idea for a group fancy dress costume as other people in the group can dress up as different characters from the ‘Merry Band of Men’. So how do you make a great Robin Hood fancy dress costume?
Robin Hood Fancy Dress
To pull off a great Robin Hood costume you need to make sure you have all the correct gear. Everyone knows the classic things you have to wear – a point triangle hat with a feather in it, a cute green waistcoat, green trouser, possibly a bit of leather and a toy bow and arrow. If you get all those together you are sure to be able to come up with a suitably jaunty outfit for our man of the woods.
Friar Tuck Fancy Dress
Friar Tuck was a fat drunk monk. So a lot of fun can be had with this costume. You need to get a fancy dress monk suit, some monk hair (with the bald bit on top), some blusher to get the rosy cheeks of a drunkard and perhaps a pillow to fatten you up if you don’t have natural physique for it.
Sheriff of Nottingham Fancy Dress
The sheriff of Nottingham is the ultimate sexy bad guy. Try out this fancy dress costume if you have always fancied a bit of a chain mail and leather combination. For some reason slicked back hair seems to make this costume look just a bit more cool and evil.
