Join the Great Rising of 1381 with this Horrible Histories Revolting Peasant Fancy Dress Costume. Seek revenge on the royal government who are trying to collect unfair taxes and keep you down in the hardship and misery of serfdom.
Head with your villagers to the capital city of London, where King Richard II has retreated to hide in the Tower of London, and join the crowds demanding equality and freedom. Based on the animated children's television and book series, Horrible Histories, this costume includes green and brown trousers and tunic with attached belt. Tattered, blood stained clothing shows the signs of struggle, and this convincing costume will really help your child to step back in time when half of Britain’s population had been wiped out by the Black Death and the poor were treated as slaves.
Unleash the inner revolutionary in your child as they look back at the social injustices of the time and consider right and wrong. Would they march with the peasants setting fire to buildings and beheading anyone associated with the king?
This is a great costume for plays and productions, or any fancy dress parties or events.
