Are you looking for an under-rated Disney themed Halloween costume?  We were recently featured in The Insider with our Roger and Anita inspired 101 Dalmatians costume, but our favorite Disney classic No Sew couple’s costume has to be Robin Hood and Maid Marian. Robin Hood and Maid Marian have one of the sweetest love stories of all time, even before they were a Disney animated cartoon. Oddly enough, we did not see one other couple dressed as Maid Marion and Robin Hood while at Mickey’s Halloween Party!  These costumes are perfect for Disney, or really any Halloween party that you need a couple’s costume for. We’ve included a FREE printable mask that is easy to make, just add the suggested costume pieces and voila – you are the cutest couple in the land!

Robin Hood & Maid Marian DIY MasksIt is Halloween costume season! If you are looking for a fun couple’s costume, we have several ideas here on Highlights Along The Way!  Because we love Disney and regularly attend Mickey’s Halloween Party, we especially love Disney themed costumes.  My husband’s favorite Disney animated feature is Robin Hood.  Today we are excited to share how easy it is to put together a Robin Hood and Maid Marian couple’s costume! We have included a FREE printable Robin Hood and Maid Marian inspired Mask that you can print from home!

Robin Hood and Maid Marion CostumeThis was supposed to read as “Robin Hood and Maid Marian acting like American Gothic”…. not sure if we were successful.

At Disneyland, guests can dress up once a year in full costume for Mickey’s Halloween Party.  While we love to dress in full costumes, we actually prefer to Disney Bound.  Our Disney Maid Marian and Robin Hood costumes were much closer to a Disney Bound than a full and complete costume.  We find this more comfortable and much more cost effective!  Other Halloween party goers knew exactly who we were and some of the costume pieces we can even wear in our every day wardrobe or apply to another costume.

This dress is simple and comfortable. It comes in a variety of colors, the purple is perfect for Maid Marion.

The perfect Maid Marian Top – it also is a beautiful blouse to wear to the office or even just every day after Halloween! I bought this blouse in a pale pink.

Remember Maid Marian’s flower ring?  Such a cute touch!

Robin Hood Pants are a must.  Robin Hood actually only wears a tunic in the film, so we needed pants that looked like Robin’s fur.  We found these perfect skinny jeans in a lovely rust color.  These are great jeans for the Fall season!  They are a perfect purchase for your costume and then to add to your wardrobe after.

Harry made his own tunic for his costume, but this is what he would have purchased if he had it to do again.  This is a great looking green medieval tunic and you cannot beat the price!

Harry also took the time to make his own Robin Hood Hat. Silly him, there is one for $3 and change on Amazon.  He spent more on fabric, and don’t even get me started on the lost hours of his life!

Fox Tails and Ears!  We wish we had added these!  Since we will likely wear our costumes again, we will be buying these costume pieces for next time! They are the perfect color and have a decent rating.

The only downfall to our costume was that our Robin Hood was often confused for Peter Pan, this is why the tail and ears would have been helpful! Live and learn, I suppose!  Our printable masks are also a perfect addition – print out on card stock or even photo paper and you will be good to go.

And below are some adorable printable masks that you can print from your home computer!  Simply print out to the size you want on card stock or photo paper.  Attach your printable to a stick and you have a very cute mask! We have a Robin Hood printable mask and a Maid Marian Printable Mask!

We hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!  Remember, fair heart never won fair lady!

    Really? Robin Hood and Maid Marian? This is definitely one of my favorite Disney Couples close behind Esmeralda/Phoebus. Is it true that Robin and Marian are having kids? Or was it because life is sweet and so it’s gone and love goes on and on?
