Women Recreate Gladiator Games [Cosplay]

Some women go shopping for shoes. Mandy Burridge and Susana Shadrake recreate the Roman gladiator games.

‘We want to create as much as we can the spectacle of the games that took place 1,900 years ago – though obviously we’re not allowed to kill each other,’ said Mrs Shadrake.

‘Our swords and shield won’t be sharp but there will still be a fair amount of violence on display.

Don’t take them lightly just because the swords aren’t sharpened. The women are members of Britannia, a Roman reenacting group that has been entertaining crowds for the past 21 years.

Check out the video after the break.
