TV shows like Game of Thrones and movies based on knights like King Arthur often depict kings and regents as people who were ready for battle. This takes away from the historical picture of Medieval kings as overweight despots who spent too much time drinking wine and not thinking about the people who served them. It then adds a cool costume concept into the lexicon for people who want to show up and show out as a battle-ready noble at their next con, cosplay event, or renaissance fair.
One of the great things about this Kings Coat costume is that it is made from the same kind of high-quality polyester you see being used in professional costume departments throughout the film industry. It is ornate with texture, soft to the skin and truly looks regal. Best of all, it’s very easy to clean and maintain for multiple wears and years of renaissance festival fun.
