Make your own Medieval Props/Adornments:

CAPE or ROBE - Make a cape from a piece of velvet material. Add some fake fur and gold cording for the collar, if desired.

STAFF - Spray paint a curtain rod gold.

CROWN - Get a Burger King crown and spray paint it gold. Decorate your crown with fake jewels (found at local craft store).

CRESS - Use felt and glue to make your own cress or coat of arms and adhere it to your outfit, a cress can be easily made out of felt and attached with safety pin, stitch, hot glue or Velcro.

DRESS UP AN OUTFIT - check second-hand stores (like FOR's Sarah's Second Chance Thirft Store @ 601 Chartiers Avenue, the storefront of Hollowood Sound & Music) for inexpensive garments. Add shimmering fabric, fake fur, gold cording, tassels, etc. to your outfit (found at local craft store).

MAIDEN'S HAT - Spray paint a cone-shaped party hat a solid color. Add a piece of sheer fabric to the top to cascade down.
