Help please!!

My daughter has an Iron Age experience day at school on Monday that I forgot about. She has to go dressed up as a Celt. Any ideas for last minute costumes?! Please! I've looked online but can't really find anything. confused

We just did this at our school.

Man's white t shirt.
Brown leggings, or any leggings
A leather belt or something to tie round waist
If you have any sheepskin bits add them in
Or tartan bits

DD had one and most went:

Adult/men T-shirt, white, grey, brown, black with a long sleeve top underneath
Leggings or tights (DD wears grey anyway)
Boots
Simple leather belt, thick woven rope to keep T-shirt in place

Some girls wore long grey skirts (borrowed from mum's wardrobe and tightened)

Same outfit also works for Anglo-Saxon days

You can also make a simple tunic from a pillow case - no sewing. Cut a hole in the top fo neck, two arm holes. Wear with leggings, long sleeve t-shirt underneath, belt. I have dressed children this way to be Egyptians, Romans, Vikings, Celts...
