For the skirt I cut the boxes into half circles and twist tied them together, and they are all attached to the bottom of the armor using Velcro. The shield is my favorite part of the costume. I cut the cardboard into long triangles, and twist tied them together with a slight overlap to give it a unique look.
The hardest part of the costume was the helmet, I had to cut out small, thin pieces of the box and tape them together in strips to make the feather top.
I built this costume to be more comfortable and easier to move around in.
