Homemade Monty Python and the Holy Grail costumes?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Ben Lesser, Apr 2, 2009.


  1. Need a bit of a hand here, if possible.

    I'm enrolled in a couple of Arthurian literature classes this semester, and our professor is throwing a medieval-style feast for us next Wednesday (complete with mead, courtesy of her husband).

    Anyway, costumes are obligatory (seriously), but can be anything we want pertaining to the Arthurian tradition, so I thought I'd go as something from the Holy Grail, like a Knight of Ni, or something along those lines.

    Any suggestions on assembling a costume? Or websites I could look on? :help:

    Thanks for the help/ridiculing. :smug:

    Or better, get a black knight outfit with some red in it and hide your arms inside your clothes.

    You could go to ren-faire and spend a small fortune on an authentic costume...Or you can get some beat up burlap and be a peasant.

    1,000 bucks says these people are hardcore Rennies, just be ready for cleavage and crazies.

    Also mead is awesome, I make it myself as well...be careful it will sneak up on you and the hangover is not pleasant.
     
  8. Alright, we'll call it a draw.

    knight_of_ni_figure.

    You will need -

    One gown of black to dark grey material
    Thick grey gloves
    Really long, woolen brown wrist-warmers
    A brown, feathery mantle
    Anthlers
    A badass black and grey beard
    A box of paint spraypainted grey with a square cutting for the face (leave a nose-shieldprotectionthing)

    Step one: Gather material
    Step two: ???
    Step three: Party

    Bravely bold Sir Robin, rode forth from Camelot,

    He was not afraid to die, Oh Brave Sir Robin,
    He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways
    Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.

    He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a
    pulp
    Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken;
    To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
    And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin.

    His head smashed in, and his heart cut out,
    And his liver removed, and his bowels unplugged,
    And his nostrils raped, and his bottom burned off,
    And his penis split ... and his ...

    Brave Sir Robin ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away.
    When danger reared its ugly head,
    He bravely turned his tail and fled
    Yes, Brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out
    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat
    Bravest of the brave Sir Robin
    Petrified of being dead
    Soiled his pants then brave Sir Robin
    Turned away and fled.
    Bravely good Sir Robin was not at all afraid
    To have his eyeballs skewered ...

    ... and his kidneys burnt and his nipples skewered off
     
  12. You forgot the most important part, a herring! or possibly a shrubbery.


    Tis such an awesome film.

    "I king arthur of camelot, son of uther, king of all the britons"
    "Pull the other one!"

    But we are now no longer the Knights Who Say Ni, we are now the Knights who say "eki eki eki eki futang zoomboing ertjkslksldn"

    :p
     
  15. The original costumes were so cheaply assembled I don't know what you're worrying about. You just need some imagination and some spare time :)

    Read up on the film, I'm sure the chainmail was like painted tissue or something... :/

    Stick a feather behind each ear and let people guess whether you're an African or European swallow. It would be a hoot!

    I just checked...it's four "eki"s. For questioning me, you must find...ANOTHER SHRUBBERY! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must place it here beside this shrubbery, only slightly higher so we get the 2 level effect, with a little path running down the middle! Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest...with...A HERRING! :p

    Heck, stick a bunch of branches on a hat and tell 'em you're a shrubbery!
