Women's Dark Lady Costume
Besides the grotesquely large turkey legs, bawdy puppet shows and elephant rides, there’s a key but oft-ignored behind-the-scenes player in the success of Renaissance fairs: corsets. Bodices. Bustiers. Whatever you want to call them, we men are jealous. Believe us, if there was an event where it was socially acceptable for men to wear girdles that accentuate our physiques, we’d be there. Alas, of the many pleasures offered by the Renaissance festival, this one only avails itself to the fairer sex.
Dark Ladies get up to a lot of fun around the castle. In a time where patriarchy really reigned supreme, Dark Ladies flouted all the rules. You go girl! Our Dark Lady costume is perfect for asserting your seductive influence over weak-willed kings, having young maidens put to death before they can rival your beauty, and consorting with all manner of foul creatures and things that go bump in the night. Just make sure no one gets carried away––if you’re being tied to stake while they gather kindling, it’s gone too far and it’s time to use your safe word.
It comes in midnight blue, a color that’s flattering on almost everyone, whether wan or swarthy. It’s faux fur, lest any do-gooders accuse of slaying ermines to make your gown. Impress them whether you’re coming-hither or going yon with a bodice inset with an embossed diamond pattern and a black interlock cape. Pair with our witch’s hat for a sinister, sexy sorceress look.
