Saint George is often pictured slaying a dragon. Read more about St. George here.
My oldest son is St. George and daughter #4 is the dragon. Okay, I had a very hard time getting a serous picture of these two, they wouldn’t quit fighting!! 😉 But I thought you might like to see these crazy kids!
The dragon costume was bought a second-hand store many years ago,
but my son carried his stuffed dragon to the All Saint’s Day Party
About the St. George costumes:
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. Very nice site 🙂 I need to make costumes for my two boys. They picked St Patrick and St. Longinus (whose clothes resemble St George.) I was wondering where you found the Breast Plate, Helmet and Sword?
