Medieval Knight Costume Ideas
You've trained for years, vowed to die for your kingdom, and now it's time to put your deadly sword skills to the test. Er, or maybe just impress your friends at your next Halloween get-together. Regardless of your mission, you'll need a knight costume that impresses even the most fearsome of foes.
A knight is vulnerable without his armor, so first you're going to have to find a set to put on. This armor can be as cheap as a plastic chest plate, or as classic as real leather. If you're willing to spend a lot, you could also splurge on some chainmail for a truly authentic look.
Since you're trying to look dark and menacing, wear as much armor as you can, it has a de-humanizing effect that is unnerving, especially when combined with the right headgear. Also, if you're covered from head to toe, you can just wear your regular clothes underneath and not have to worry so much about changing if you need to take the costume off.
As for shoes, a pair of nice leather boots should suffice. Try not to pick ones that are too modern-looking, and in fact they will look better if they're a little torn up. Since you're a dark knight, find boots that are bigger than your usual shoes if you can, something that will make you seem taller and your footprints seem bigger.
Headgear is sort of optional, but part of keeping yourself protected from the arrows being flung all around you is having a helmet. Depending on what kind of warrior you are, your helmet should be different and should reflect your class and culture. If you're going for a dark, evil look, though, it's probably best to get a helmet and mask that cover your whole face if you can manage it-unless it makes you too sweaty.
Finally, what is a warrior without his weapons, right? This is where you get to decide what kind of fighting strategy you're going to take. Are you the kind of guy who likes to target enemies from afar and deliver a deadly blow quickly? Maybe you should try a bow and arrow. Or maybe a fake sword which is a lot scarier for Halloween night.
