300 Costume Making Help Answered
I want to be King Leonidas from 300 for Halloween, but I don't want a cheap vinyl costume, or anything like that. I want actual metal..just having some trouble figuring out what all to do.
Helmet - I've heard that aluminum roof flashing is easy to cut and work with..any ideas on how to make the skull cap/hair on top?
(Mixing bowl suggested by Jessy)
Cape - I'm going to take a deep red piece of cloth, cut up an old belt for the straps, and make some kind of clasp.
Spear - Probably some conduit with a cardboard or possibly metal tip (how does one paint metal?)
Sword - If aluminum flashing is easy to cut, ill cut out a blade, and then a plywood handle. JB weld the blade into the handle.
loin cloth thing - I might take some brown shorts and bleach the legs...I think i'd be doing everyone a favor by not wearing a real one
Arm protectors - Not really sure about these..any ideas?
Shield - A Pizza pan
If you have any suggestions on how to improve my ideas/answer questions, i'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
