So I've been sick for over 3 weeks.. was tested for the piggie flu.. I guess I don't have it.. no one called to tell me.. I said I would make some costumes for my oldest sons end of the year play.. well due to being sick for 3 weeks.. IM BEHIND!!!  I did get the mummy outfit done and sent.. I also had to make 2 Roman soldiers.. the play is next TUE.. had I not been sick I would have been done.. EEKS.. I still need to make the other kids body armor.. then both their flanged skirt thingies.. and if I have time.. leg armor and arm armor.. this is what I have done after 2 nights till 3am.. the main problem is.. the 2nd kid is HALF the size of Logan.. lol so I cant just make 2 of everything.. I have to make Logan's.. then shrink one..  Lemme tell you.. If I have to battle.. I'm tossing one of these helmets on..lol  talk about BUILT TOUGH.. who knew cardboard and hot clue could be stronger then metal!


I forgot to say.. this is all made with cardboard.. except for the inside shield .  Each helmet is made from alittle over half a box ( approx12x12 box)  the parts left over is what im using to make the flange (just finished both sets.. just need to decorate and paint)

I'm so sorry you've been sick! My sister was sick with something for that long too. The costumes you're making are awesome. Very authentic looking.
