So we all know of King Henry VIII, yes? The ruler of England during the 1500s who had six wives? Of course we do.
He was a man who loved food and drink. He was fond of the hunt, and (supposedly) pretty good looking. Sure, he was educated and yes, he had a way with the ladies (we need not even mention his sumptuous colorful clothes), but let's not forget the most important part, shall we? He was King of England. We're talking power here. Power to execute people who got in his way, re-work England's constitution, and of course, start up a new church with himself as the head when he didn't agree with the old church. Henry sure knew how to get his way.
So if you want to dress up as a powerful ruler, our King Henry VIII Costume is definitely the way to go. The doublet is made of tapestry fabric with gold braided trim on the body and sleeves. There's a bronze medallion on a 30" chain to hang around your noble neck. Just add some fancy boots and maybe a crown (also that white shirt which is sold separately) and you'll be one posh ruler. Just remember you aren't actually King Henry VIII. So don't try bossing people around like you're the king of England, because that probably won't go so well.
Large or standard size seems to be a touch small, I have been measured by a tailor. maybe 2 inches small.
The slits up the sides also seems to rise 3 to 4 inches to high. you need to be prepared for a flawless look.
This has good enough quality to pass for Ren Faire, not just Halloween.
