For a more elaborate Medieval costume, consider a knight in shining armor or a fair lady of the court. An easy way to make authentic-looking chainmail for the knight is to purchase a large-looped sweater from a thrift shop. Use a can of metallic silver spray paint to paint the sweater, and let it air dry for a few days. Cut a tunic out of heavy fabric and, using fabric glue, attach an insignia of choice on the front. Make a sword and shield out of heavy cardboard, pair the tunic and chain mail with leggings and leather boots, and the Medieval knight is ready for battle.

Use a hot glue gun to add embellishments such as metallic gold string around the hems, edges of the sleeves and waist. Add heavy costume jewelry such as rings, bracelets and a necklace to complete the look.Learn more about Sewing
