Don't Forget Your Renaissance Chemise on Your Halloween Party Halloween is just around the corner, and people are already preparing for this annual celebration. This is one of the occasions that everyone, not only kids, looks forward to. There are a lot of activities and costume parties being held during this season that it is important to plan for this occasion ahead of time. Are you thinking of what to wear for the parties that you are going to attend? Forget the witch costume and go for something different, like a renaissance lady. This costume is very easy to make. In fact, if you look through your wardrobe, you'd probably discover that you have all the things you need to complete this costume, like a renaissance chemise. Here are some tips on getting a Renaissance Lady costume. To Rent or To Buy? If you don't have time or the skills to make your own costume, looking for the perfect Renaissance Lady costume is as much fun as making your own. You can rent a renaissance costume on most costume shops. The prices may be different from each store. It's a good idea to look around first before deciding on the one that you're going to get. When renting, it would be a good idea to wear your own renaissance chemise instead of borrowing it. The downside of renting a costume is that you don't have anything to keep as a remembrance of the party, except for the pictures that you are going to take. Wouldn't it be nice to keep your costume so you can always remember what you did for that Halloween year? While buying a costume may be a bit more expensive than renting one, you can be sure that you're the first person who's going to wear the clothes. After all, you can't be sure how clean a rented costume is. You won't be wasting your money on buying a renaissance ensemble. You can mix and match your top and skirt with your other clothes so you can use it for everyday wear. A renaissance chemise can be worn under a thin blouse. You can also match it with a pair of jeans or shorts for casual wear. Be Resourceful One thing that is very nice with putting together a renaissance costume is that it's not much of an effort to look for things you need to complete your ensemble. A renaissance chemise has evolved to different styles. Right now, a chemise can be as simple as a modern woman's undergarment or dress. You probably have several of those in your closet. The broomstick skirt you haven't worn for a long time, when paired with your chemise, a peasant style blouse and a corset or a fitted vest would make for a great renaissance ensemble. Want to take things a bit further? If you don't like the idea of putting together a renaissance garb using the available clothes you have, you can always look for renaissance or medieval stores that can suggest and put together a personal ensemble to match that renaissance chemise you have.
