Robin Hood Fancy Dress Costumes

Robin Hood fancy dress costumes are a prevalent genre of outfit at costume parties throughout the year and particularly so at Halloween. When I say Robin Hood fancy dress, I am actually talking about those clothes inspired by all the characters from Sherwood Forest and not just Robin himself.

Maid Marion, Friar Tuck, King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham have all encouraged some great looking costumes and it is not surprising given the place that the legend has in our prevalent culture. Robin of Loxley is an English folklore hero who was both an extremely skilled archer and swordsman. You can visit http://www.fancythatcostumes.com.au/buy-costumes-accessories/ to buy fancy costumes for next party.

He was a nobleman who was enforced to become an outlaw, so he formed a group of fellow outlaws known as his "Merry Men" and wandered an area known as Sherwood Forest. Robin and his men wore Lincoln green clothes and they became disreputable for "robbing from the rich to give to the poor".

Robin Hood fancy dress costumes have always been prevalent, but become even more so in recent years thanks to the Hollywood blockbuster, Prince of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner in the title role and then more lately due to the huge success of the BBC television series. It is likely that Robin Hood outfits will become more prevalent still this year, which sees the release of a new film, a more resolute adaptation of the legend, starring Russell Crowe.
