One old belt cut in two.
Kids black sweatpants we had.
Sister's black leather boots.
Box weave fabric, like long underwear material. I got two bolts of it for $2 each at Walmart Last year knowing I could use it for something.
Some scrap vinyl we got from Grandma Shirley's garage a couple weeks ago.
Some string elastic from Grandma Cookies stash.
and some silver spray paint

Here is a photo of the costume you can buy for $25-$50
I can assure you that it does not come with the boots!
I started with the vest, I cut up a pair of pants I got at a thrift store for myself, but they were too large and too short.
See here are the pants now.
I pieced together a vest from the pant legs and added some pray paint with a net over it to give it some texture, then painted some armor rectangles kind of like Caspian's, but simplified because one, I didn't want to sit and paint all day, and two I wanted my Caspian to look a bit more cute than the actual one.
I think I got the cuteness factor I was looking for.
What do you think?
And with his chain mail hood, I think that might still need some work, doesn't look quite the way I want it to, but works.
Ready to go on a quest for Aslan!
View from behind. Here you can tell where I did some piecing of the pants. I like the funky look of it to be honest. I just started draping, sewing, and piecing to make it work.
