We were provided this Renaissance Queen Costume from Costume Super Center in exchange for our honest review and promotion.
I realize that not every girl is a diva or girly girl but I bet one of these 5 reasons will still resonate with you as to why you should buy a Renaissance Queen costume for a girl in your life!.
Themed Birthday Party
We don’t limit our birthday parties to just cake and punch. I usually have my children pick out a theme right after their birthday for next year in order to have plenty of planning time. Since each of their birthdays fall at different times of year it means that I get to shop various holiday and seasonal clearance sales.
2. Homeschool Unit Study
There are a lot of homeschool groups that do historical presentations or dramas where having a store-bought Renaissance Queen costume would come in handy. There are tons of free resources to learn about knights, kings, and castles online but you can check out some of my favorite ones via my History and Geography pinterest board.
3. Comic Con costume
Since we are video game players and comic lovers we like to attend Comic Con. This year some of us wanted to have simpler costumes while other’s (hubby and Eldest) are making things for their costumes. You can never go wrong dressing like a princess or queen if you are a tween girl!
4. Renaissance Festival
This year we were given tickets to attend and review our local Renaissance Festival so this costume will come in handy when we attend. Again you don’t have to be in costume but it will make attending the festival that much more fun.
5. Dress up
While it’s the most obvious it might also be the most overlooked. I firmly believe that children should be children and be allowed to dress up. I love seeing my children’s eye light up as they dawn a costume and take on the persona of a character from long ago and far away.
A little bit about this costume that Princess is wearing. She was very excited when it came in the mail for review. She opened the package and tried it on right away. Then I heard her say, “Mom, one of my gems fell off,” in a very disappointed voice. She was super sad but I told her that her dad could repair it with a bit of gorilla glue when he got home. He did and now the gem has stayed on the Velcro as it should. We followed the sizing guide on the website in order to choose a costume the correct size. Princess is 11 years old and typically wears a size 12 slim jean but for this costume she ordered a size 8-10. They seem to run a bit big but if your child plans to wear a thick pair of sweats underneath to keep warm then buy the “normal” size your child wears. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the costume and may be looking at a few other costumes for my boys in the future.

Thank you for sharing some ways to use Costumes. Because as we get ready for Homeschooling this year I was thinking about picking up a couple costumes for our school. And as for the Renaissance Festival I have always wanted to attend it or Medieval Times and hope to be able to do one of them soon.
