Cleopatra knew what she was doing when it came to politics... and fashion now that we think about it. How many stories featuring Cleopatra include her making a grand entrance? About half of them, that we can think of!
A constant hit at Halloween parties, we think this classic queen should also have a place when it comes to toga parties and costumed parades. So if you think these gold Cleopatra costumes are going to be one-time use, think again! Just imagine strutting your stuff in the sophisticated Made by Us Cleopatra jumpsuit while grandly waving to the people from a Mardi Gras parade. Oof, way to make this queen proud!
The best part is, you don't have to go it alone. Cleopatra had not one but two famous lovers. They were Marc Antony and Julius Caesar, both important Roman officials. Either man would have worn decadent armor mixed with the flowing style of the toga. Cleopatra's most famous romance was with Mr. Antony. Antony and Cleopatra costumes have a classic touch that make people think of Shakspeare and Elizabeth Taylor at the same time. Which no other couple costume can do.
Speaking of the late, great Mz. Taylor, if you're thinking of going all out for your Cleopatra and Marc Anthony costumes, you may want to consider referencing the 1963 Cleopatra film, which had one of the most expensive wardrobe budgets of any movie to this day! Elizabeth Taylor Cleopatra costumes featured mountains of gold jewelry and highlighted her stunning hourglass figure. While we don't expect your budget to be as wild as the one that almost bankrupted 20th Century Fox, you should be generous with any costume jewelry you have in your wardrobe as well as exploring any Cleopatra accessories we have in stock. More is better in this case!
Say, while women Cleopatra costumes are a subject we could discuss all day, we'd better talk about the kiddos for a moment! Child Cleopatra costumes are fun for Halloween, historical school projects, and dressing up at home. Child Halloween costumes that feature Cleopatra will let your kiddo feel like a leader with a long cape, flowing skirts, and regal golden details! Do you want to pair your daughter up with a sibling without the dark association between Marc Antony and the famous queen? Kid Cleopatra costumes can be paired with other famous Egyptian rulers for a costume that simply celebrates the drama of historical Egypt. We love the idea of Cleopatra and King Tut costumes giving Halloweens everywhere a regal flair!
