I love the themed days at school. They are a really good excuse to walk away from my computer for a bit and get creative. Admittedly for Ancient Greek day I did cheat and buy a cheapy costume from Amazon, but I did make the Greek helmet. I figured I needed to do something to turn a Roman Gladiator costume into a Greek soldier costume!
I followed the instructions here for making the basic helmet out of cardboard – which was surprisingly easy, then spray painted the whole thing gold. Don’t be discouraged by how professional the helmet looks in that tutorial, just follow steps 1-4 then get your trusty gold spray paint out!
I’m rather pleased with the result, what do you think?
