Sir Anthony of House Stark

Each year I chaperone a trip to Washington D.C. with my 8th grade students.  We typically spend one evening having dinner at Medieval Times.  I typically use this as an opportunity to showcase a costume or two.

My WoW mage and Dragon Age Rogue were good choices.  This year, I've been on a pretty big Iron Man kick, so I decided to build a medieval themed iron man suit of armor.

The armor parts were mostly done with craft foam.  I had a chain mail coif already, so I built the pauldrons and mask to hook onto it.


The armor pieces were modified from Mk7 foam/pep files.  The forearm guards were held on with elastic.  I didn't even really sew the tabard as much as I cut a hole in a piece of cloth I had and tossed a belt around it.
