Roman soldier helmet made out of a spray painted: baseball cap (flipped backwards), cardboard (for the ear flaps and visor), feather boa, styrofoam plate edges (attached to the top part of the baseball cap - you can try paper plates and glue; I used duct tape), embossed vinyl fabric glued to the cardboard visor and ear flaps, and gold fringe. Feel free to embellish further!
