About Monk Robes
Make your next Halloween a religious experience with monk robes. An ideal costume for those people who want to stay comfortable while dressing up, these robes offer a look that pulls together easily while not requiring large amounts of makeup or accessories. The typical brown robe for monks resembles those worn by actual medieval monks, who generally wore the same robes throughout their monasteries. Most robes are similar to ancient and modern-day Franciscan friars, who wear brown or gray robes daily. In addition to a robe, you can make your monk costume more authentic with a rosary, crucifix, and Bible. Many also see the iconic addition of a wig that looks like the shaven head of a monk as an important part of a costume. Monk robes are wearable to events, such as Renaissance fairs, for an authentic look. Not all monks are Catholic, however. Some other monks' outfits are recognizable costumes as well, such as a Shaolin monk robe. These robes are great for the Kung Fu enthusiast. No matter the occasion, you can find monk robes as part of the vast inventory on eBay.
