I grew up in North Texas, and Halloween has always been my favourite holiday; I take it very seriously. I got the idea for this costume from the Renaissance Faire that I went to that summer. I purchased the corset at the Faire, but everything else was either made or bought secondhand to fit in with the theme. The skirt was purchased and then altered. The top was bought as is at a thrift store, I think it might have belonged to another costume at some point, but I'm not sure.

Instructions for a Basic Medieval Monk Outfit

Items Needed:
  • Brown Robe
  • White Rope
  • Cross Necklace
  • Brown or Black Shoes

Step 1: Put the brown robe on the body.

Step 2: Use the white rope to create a belt that will be placed around the waist region of the costume. Once the rope is in place, tie a loose knot in the front.

Step 3: Now, place the cross necklace around the neck and put on the brown or black shoes.
