Today in 1802 the French writer Alexandre Dumas was born. Although he wrote a good number of novels, including ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ and ‘The Man in the Iron Mask’, he is possibly best known for ‘The Three Musketeers’. This book has been filmed many times and, amazingly, is seeing yet another remake, due for release early October and featuring Orlando Bloom and Milla Jovovich. Just in case you are the person who has never seen one of the movies or read the book, there are these three musketeers (not much of a plot spoiler there) Athos, Porthos and Aramis who are joined by a musketeer wannabee – D’Artagnan, and they get involved in a matter of intrigue and mystery, which threatens the very monarchy of France itself.

Meanwhile at Props n Frocks we find musketeer costumes can be a popular choice when it comes to generic or ‘group’ costume efforts – parties with a specific Musketeer theme are a little thin on the ground. Even so, rather like pirates, the outfit can work well for both males and females (but the ladies might want to skip the moustaches – or perhaps not!).
