The Maiden Marion
Dress up as this Renaissance woman
who knows how to handle a bow and arrow. Maid Marion lives with Robin Hood, Little John and Friar Tuck
in the Sherwood Forest. Be this fairytale
heroine that girls adore this Halloween. The earliest medieval legends cast Marion as the mistress of the May Day games.
In the classic children’s Disney film, she is depicted as a high ranking lady of the court
. Maid Marion disguises herself as a page and holds her own against the original outlaw himself in a Nottingham sword
fight. This comely character likely derived from the traditional French ballad of a shepherdess Marion and her shepherd
paramour named Robin.
