Gladiator Halloween Costume to Make (1930's)

gladiator1The Roman gladiator costume is also great for Halloween.

The helmet is the crown of an old derby hat surmounted with a curved wooden crest and ostrich plumes.

The crest is scroll-sawed from 3/4 in. white pine and tacked from the inside. Drive in large headed tacks through a strip of reinforced cardboard.

A convincing coat of mail is made by sewing scales of gilt paper on an undershirt, the scales overlapping each other. Sew on paper or leather epaulets, and make a belt of red and black oilcloth.

The skirt should be an accordion-pleated one with a red hem.
