Plus Size Knight of the Round Table Costume
Lo, the classic Knight of the Round Table Costume! What can we say about this gallant get-up that you don't already know? You roll deep with a crew of esteemed bros, you fight for the glory of the King and the good of all England, your wisdom is valued, your bravery is revered, the ladies all love you, blah blah blah. And you get to carry a sword. The costume basically sells itself, my friend.
But you know what nobody ever talks about? How relatable the Knights were. Sure, they were all invited to join an elite branch of government, but we're pretty sure they had to deal with the same kind of professional and personal pressures that you do. The benefits were admittedly pretty great...roses thrown at your feet, ballads written in your honor, tapestries sewn in your likeness... But just like any other job, the daily grind could get you down after a while. First, you never had a day off...even when you wanted to hop over to France to blow off some steam, the Round Table came with you. You couldn't even catch a lunch break without the boss sitting down, asking everyone to start talking strategy! And sometimes, the quests didn't exactly match up with your passions...like, who grows up saying "someday, I'm dedicate my whole life to looking for a golden cup..."? Also, let's be real...when you're forced to constantly hang with your coworkers every moment of your (short, disease-ridden, medieval) life, things stop being quite so gallant, ya dig? "Saintly" Knight Sir Galahad? Please...the guy wouldn't know fun if it hit him with a glove of chain mail. "Simple" Sir Percival? Not exactly valued for his innovative ideas, we can tell you that much! "Honest, plain-spoken Sir Bors"? Dude did not comprehend the meaning of Appropriate Workplace Language. And don't even get us started on the boss, King Arthur, who's apparently so great that he has legends written about him...all he ever did was just be in the right place at the right time! Oh, and then to make things even more stressful, you've got a Knight Code, so no one can even tell Arthur that his favorite employee, Lancelot, is boffing his babe behind his back! How is anyone supposed to work in these conditions?
But still, you should don this coat of arms and let it take you back to a simpler, more chivalrous time...like, when you didn't have to choose between which health benefit package was right for you, because there weren't any health benefits to be had! And no one had ever even heard of a 401K, because to live to the ancient age of 60 was remarkable enough! When Maidens would weep in joy at the sight of you after a long battle, instead of roll their eyes at the choice of shoes you picked out! Hark! Alight upon your trusty steed, Sir Knight, and escape to a land of fair maidens, daring battles, and no data limits on your mobile phone plan! Purchase your sword as an accessory and then raise it high as you embark upon your (probably fatal, tbh) quest for King and Britain!
