The Court Jester has been around to entertain for centuries from medieval courts to Renaissance banquets and Mardi Gras celebrations.
This costume explores the darker side of the character, perhaps a whim for mischief in the court!
It is a three-piece combination of Tunic with gold embroidered Mandarin collar, Sunray Collar and Pants. The shirt is the Nobles Shirt and not included but is available separately if desired.
The tunic is dark red taffeta with a black velvet harlequin pattern on the front and a solid black velvet back with lace-up sides. You’ll find period slits in the velvet edged shoulder caps which display rich golden trim with heavy-duty hook & eye closures running down the front.
The Sunray Collar is a particularly striking and necessary for any jester! This sunray collar is made of matching taffeta and black velvet with 15 various sized points, each with a golden bell sewn to the end.
The ensemble is completed with matching black velvet period knee-breeches which are lined and have a flat front with a generous elastic waistband in the rear and have hidden slit pockets. These breeches are further decorated with stitched ribbon bands along with golden roped garters. The wide bottom cuff has buttons making them adjustable.
