World book day
James has been busy at home the last few months making his rather impressive Achilles costume for World Book Day. It is all completely handmade (apart from the helmet)!
James describes how he made it "The shield is made out of a bin lid on some plywood. The 'V' is made out of cardboard and is painted red. The shin protectors are my old football shin pads painted gold. The armour is made out of pretend leather. We used a real live sewing machine for it and we used tailors chalk to mark out the armour before we cut the leather."
