How to Make a Knight Costume


Many people are interested in creating their own knight costume but become overwhelmed when taking on the task. However, a knight costume is much easier to create than some might think. Creating your own costume is often less expensive than purchasing one from a retailer. Assembling simple pieces such as a white T-shirt, pants and a few accessories can produce a realistic knight costume.

Things You'll Need

  • White shirt
  • Red felt material
  • Black pants
  • 1-2 yards of brown fabric

Buy an oversize white shirt that is 1 to 2 sizes larger than your regular size. Wash the shirt before beginning work on your costume.

Create a cross on the white shirt. Take a large piece of red felt material and trace a cross onto the material with a pen. After you have traced the desired shape, use scissors to cut out the cross.

Glue the cross to the shirt. Lay the shirt flat on a table and choose where you would like the cross to be. Use a glue gun to adhere the cross to the shirt.

You will need to choose a pair of black pants to finish the costume. Select a pair of snug-fitting black workout pants.

Create a sash. Purchase 1-2 yards of brown fabric to create a sash for your waist. Measure your waist, and make a sash that is twice as long as the measurement. For example, if your waist is 30 inches, cut a sash that is 60 inches long and about 5 inches wide.

Tips & Warnings

  • Choose a few simple accessories to for your knight costume. You can find a knight helmet and sword at your local craft store.
  • When adhering the felt to the white shirt, make sure to handle the material with care. Glue guns can get very hot.
