St. Martin of Tours ~ Costume

Because St. Martin had a habit of giving his cloak to the poor he only has half a cloak.
It's a fun story...Read about St. Martin of Tours here.
The silver/gray armor was bought, but the cloak is just a piece of red material.
The "skirt" was hand made. 
I used a old belt, and leather-like material which was cut into strips to create this Roman apparel.
Super-glue worked great for getting the two leather-like materials to stick together.
The white under skirt was just a piece of white material. 

I also create gold circles on the skirt strips.
I used a cap to make an indentation on the end of each flap, so I could use it as a guide to make them all the same size. Then I used gold fabric paint to make the gold buttons.

  1. Wonderful! Our school celebrates Martinmas in the German tradition, and this is the perfect costume for our reenactment of the dividing of the cloak. I make a cloak and divide it in to two parts. I velcro the two halves together and at the big moment in the story, our Martin separates the two halves.
