A great Halloween costume is fun, attractive and a little intimidating. The Medieval Warrior Princess meets all these requirements. She's tough, she's sexy and she has a great look. You can buy a costume online or in a costume shop but a good looking one will cost you a few gold pieces and the cheap ones really look kind of cheesy. Making one yourself will save you money and allow you to add your own style.

Instructions

    How to Make Medieval Warrior Princess Costumes

  1. 1

    Start with a leather vest and plain short shirt. If you don't have these, try a thrift store. A more modest princess may want to wear a tan or white tank top under the vest.

  2. 2

    Make an over skirt by wrapping a piece of the black faux leather around your waist. The skirt should be a little longer than the under skirt. Attach it in the back with Velcro. Cut slits about 2 inches apart all the way around up to about 2 inches from top of skirt. Cut each strip into a point.

  3. 3

    Make wrists guards by lacing tapered pieces of faux leather to forearms with shoe strings.

  4. 4

    Wear knee high boots or sandals with shin guards made by lacing tapered pieces of faux leather to shins.

  5. 5

    Wrap a really long leather belt over your left shoulder, cross at your right hip and buckle at your left hip. If you can't find one long enough buckle two together. Tuck your sword in the belt behind your back with the handle within reach in case of an attack.

  6. 6

    Costume shops or online sites sell a variety of swords from £3 to £16. Purchase one to suit your style.

  7. 7

    Decorate your costume with gold or silver paint or metal studs.
