I have been in college for the last 3 Halloweens and I've seen a lot of great costumes. From the guy wearing nothing but a black box around his waist saying censored, to the army man painted green head-to-toe, and periodically going down on one knee with his bazooka. It's all about going all-out being really original and a little ridiculous. Now here and there you may see a Bud Light Cowboy, but I'll bet you've never seen a Bud Light Knight...Complete with beer-tab armor!!
This costume will not require much experience or skill with tools. The hardest it gets is sawing (and you may not even need to do that). It will require a pretty good investment of time. It will take a few hours at least. The vast majority of time is spent on the chain mail shirt. There is a really great Instructable that will walk you through the basics of making this chain mail. The good part is most of the work can be done while watching TV (I recommend football!) or listening to music, so the time passes pretty quick. And at the end of the project you will not only have a great Halloween costume, but a pretty good looking piece of armor that YOU made!
