Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday with fancy dress!

Posted on February 21, 2013 by admin



The father of the English language, ol’ Bill Shakespeare, was born 23rd April 1564, and died the same day 52 years later (bet that put a dampener on the birthday celebrations!).

Shakespeare is noted to have shaped the English language as we know it today and he has been attributed with creating many of our most well know words and phrases.

Words such as ‘bump’, ‘excitement’, ‘fashionable’, ‘gossip’ and even ‘hobnob’ are said to have been created by Shakespeare, so if that’s not a reason to celebrate, we don’t know what is!

Ladies looking to recreate some scenes from Romeo and Juliet can’t go wrong with this Renaissance Princess Costume, complete with floor length dress and veil.

Or if you’re looking for something truly original, this Renaissance Maiden Costume is sure to attract many an admirer desperate to recite their poetry to you (whether you want them to or not!).

Men who want to show off their knowledge of Shakespeare as well as their muscles will love this Deluxe Renaissance Knight Costume, which will make the princesses and maidens swoon.

Likewise, if you’re looking for something a little more royal, this King Costume will show everyone who’s in charge of this party.

Kids can get involved too: little Timmy will love this tough looking Dragon Slayer Costume, while little Susie will adore dressing up as a rich Merchants Daughter for the day!

Perfect for a World Book Day costume on 7th March, we’d say!

Whether you’re looking for a fun night with friends, or going all out at the local Renaissance Fair, there are plenty of options for everyone to get involved.

Be sure to send us in your pictures if you celebrate Shakespeare Day in April. We want tankards, quills, hats and all!

Join us on Facebook and Twitter to share your pictures with your fellow fancy dressers!
