So, I made this knight costume as a Christmas gift for my step-son. He's 7, and loves playing dress-up. I'm really, really proud of it. All told this project took me a good 4 days of work!

I designed it myself, drew the wyvern (inspired by images I googled), and did most of the details with a blanket stitch by hand. The "shirt" is reversible, so he can either be a "George who slew the dragon" style knight or a Crusader (not that I think the crusades were a good thing). There are snaps on one shoulder so I wouldn't have to worry about his head not fitting through the hole, and I installed elastics around the torso for an easy fit.

The shield has two pieces of cardboard hidden within to make it sturdier.


There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

WOW! I bet he's having lots of fun slaying dragons and defending the realm!
