Nice Hood, Robin: Special Costume Exhibit from Robin Hood


When I saw Robin Hood, something about it seemed very familiar. It wasn't the plot, which I thought was a very interesting take on legend, as it left off where most of the other films have chosen to begin. It wasn't Sherwood Forest which I got to visit on my trip to Nottingham, because the movie was actually shot in Windsor Great Park. The reason why Robin Hood felt so familiar is that I saw many of the costumes at a special exhibit at Nottingham Castle

The exhibit will be on display through the end of October, and it's a must-see if you visit Nottingham. Robin Hood, Maid Marian and even Friar Tuck are a lot more fashionable than you'd expect them to be. Certainly, they look a lot better than they did in the
1991 film. (Just about everything in the new Robin Hood is better than the old Robin Hood.) The bar has really been raised for anyone who wants to dress up as Robin Hood or any of the other characters for Halloween.

    I enjoyed the film. Interesting to read about the costumes. It’s also a plot point in the theme – if they put on knights’ armour, who’s to know they’re not knights?

    I can’t wait to see this new film. I like period movies with historic costumes and settings. Russell Crowe not too bad either. :)
