So, here's a proper medieval Halloween figure, the Green Knight. Not meant to be a horror story but have you heard it? A giant of a man, who basically comes up to Arthur and his court, calls them sissy pants, and asks if anyone would like to take an axe swing at his neck. Not without price though, the Green Knight gets to return the favor in one year. Normal people would be freaked out by someone who says "try to kill me, it'll be fun!". Worst of all, is that after King Arthur's nephew Sir Gawain steps up to the challenge beheading the Green Knight, the Green Knight calmly picks up his severed head, holds it in spooky fashion, and decrees, he'll see Gawain in a year. Creepy.

Costume tips

With Halloween on the rise, we at MRL thought it would be nice to give you a few costume pointers. For example,  the Locksley Gambeson (item 100476) is a great mix-n-match item. This quilted garment is in two parts. The first is sleeveless, making it look great by itself or easily paired with other shirts. The matching Locksley undershirt has the same quilted sleeves as the vest but is otherwise flat. This is ideal for slipping it under any vest or tunics, for a little added awesomeness. Many of the garments we sell can be combined to make many unique ensembles. Let your imagination run wild!
