How to Make a Roman Soldier Costume. I was planning a special event that called upon 4 stout roman soldiers to carry a beauty queen around on a throne. My budget didn't allow for the rental of 4 adult roman soldier costumes. So this is how I did it.
An Etruscan warrior with a wide brimmed pot helmet, a typical curved oval shield called simply a " scutum ". The warrior has a small bronze disk suspended over his chest that functions as a chest protector, and the straps that hold it up also suspend the warrior's sword. The warrior has a set of javelins too, which he can throw at enemies before closing in with his sword.
