50+ Historical Costumes, No Time Machine Required

Well folks, we're long past 2015 and we have yet to see a flying time machine car. We might not have the technology to travel through time (or have flying cars), but we can bring the past forward in time with us through themed parties, festivals, and historical reenactments. Sometimes we simply want to dress up as people from our favorite civilizations and time periods because we admire them so much! The Egyptians and Greeks were awesome because they dominated art and culture. Between the two of them, they made six of the seven wonders of the ancient world! The middle ages brought us tales of knights and derring-do that would be romanticized for centuries to come. Even Victorian attire was cool enough that it inspired the genre that is now steampunk. Or take inspiration from any of the United States' Presidents for your look. Whatever the case may be, we have a wide range of your favorite historical costumes from eras like the roaring 20s and earlier. We'll do our best to pick out the most historically accurate costumes from these different time periods!
