How to Make a Julius Caesar Costume


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 characterized 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.

Things You'll Need

  • White sheet
  • Safety pins
  • Gold ribbon
  • Fake leaves
  • Glue
  • Gold spray paint
  • Newspaper
  • Bobby pins
  • Drape an old white sheet around your body so it falls like a column, covering the legs but leaving the arms uncovered.

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

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

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

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

  • Secure the leaf headpiece to your hair with bobby pins.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add some sandals to complete the look.
