Story of the Little Roman Soldier and his Chariot Costume
January 14, 2015 the lord blessed my husband and I with a baby boy, Charlie (Charles J. Thiebaud V). He has been the joy of our life ever since. Mommy was determined to make his Halloween Costume EPIC. I didn’t want him to be anything any other kid was being. So I saw a little Roman Gladiator costume online and my mind went crazy.
My dad really deserves most of the credit. I told him my visions of a Roman Chariot and he did most of the hard work. Me with power tools = a bad idea!!!!
I made his Roman helmet with plume feathers out of a Dollar Store knights helmet. I searched everywhere for a toddler Roman helmet and actually found a little roman costume another mom created on Pinterest. I took her advise with the Dollar Tree helmet and created my own helmet.
Hope you pick Charlie!
A lot of love and hard work went into bringing this vision to life.

Can’t wait to push him around on Halloween in his Chariot!
