How to Make a Julius Caesar Costume

Updated April 17, 2017

If you're looking for a simple but creative costume for Halloween or a costume party, consider putting together a Julius Caesar costume. Caesar was a famous Roman emperor who was notoriously murdered on the steps of the Roman Forum. His dress was characterised by a toga and a head garland, which is easy to recreate using just a bit of materials and tools, some of which you may already have on hand.

  1. Drape an old white sheet around your body so it falls like a column, covering the legs but leaving the arms uncovered.

  2. Gather the fabric at the shoulders and safety pin at each shoulder so the sheet hangs from your shoulders like a toga.

  3. Tie a thin piece of gold ribbon around each safety pin to conceal the pin.

  4. Glue together about 12 fake leaves from a craft store, making them into a U-shape.

  5. Lay the leaf formation on a sheet of newspaper and spray with gold spray paint. Let dry.

  6. Secure the leaf headpiece to your hair with hair clips.

  7. Tip

    Add some sandals to complete the look.
