For children that struggle to the last minute to decide what they'd like to be on Halloween, this noble knight costume is a great one to put together in a knick of time. The costume contains several homemade pieces that replicate the look of medieval solider using mostly aluminum foil.

The costume requires string, an aluminum foil cupcake tin, cabinet liner, duct tape and cardboard. The cabinet liner is used to replicate the chainmail and duct tape is used along with cardboard to make the sword. Then the cupcake tin is used to make the shield and a beanie acts as the helmet. You can add as many details as you want using other silver or shiny materials such as breast and leg plates. This is a great product for kids to put together on their own as well.
