The ancient Romans knew the power of Duct Tape. In decisive victory after victory, Duct Tape brought them through the woes of battle, with little more than than a scratch.
Step 1: Get Some Cardboard
This will be the meat of your shield and armor.
Step 2: Draw a Design
Draw a design on the box and cut out.
Then cover with Duct Tape.
For the armor we selected "classic" Duct Tape.
For the shield we used red and yellow.
Step 3: Shield Close Up
Create a design on the shield, the armor should be fairly plain without much decoration.
Now you're ready to Vini, Vidi, Vici across the known world.
