A word from John, the 'Black Knight' costume creator:

For this year I decided to be the Black Knight from that hit classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail. My costume consisted of chainmaille sleeves and neck piece, a helmet, a tunic and tights. The chainmaille I made entirely out of soda can tabs that I had been collecting all year. The helmet I made out of a garbage can and used hot glue to give it texture. The tunic and leggings were made out of scraps of my mom's fabric that I found in my garage. My costume is completely homemade and cost me $8 to make (the eight dollars was for paint and the garbage can only because I don't think I could have put up with the smell of a used one!).

Your costume looks epic. I'm doing the same thing, but spending a bit more. The helmet is cardboard, cut, pasted, decorated with glue stick etc, the sword a 50" maple bastard sword and the chain mail made from bottle caps. Chain mail shirt is a Valu Village sweater spray painted silver. The tunic is taking more work so I'm ripping off your emblem...thanks!
