Teen Jewel of the Nile Cleopatra Costume
A couple of thousand years after her death, Cleopatra is still remembered as one of the great beauties of all time. There have been countless movies, plays, paintings, and songs about her timeless beauty and all of the loves she had and lost. In an era where today’s Snapchat star is tomorrow’s meme punchline, it’s hard to imagine a reputation for good looks lasting anywhere near that long.
But here’s the thing fewer people remember about Cleopatra: she was more than just a pretty face. In her day, her brain power was nearly as legendary as her beauty. She is said to have been a master of at least nine languages and was celebrated as a wise and powerful ruler who broke with sexist traditions that might have held her back. She guided mighty armies and made strategic decisions that had major impacts on the course of history. Heck, some people even thought her to be a reincarnated goddess. As it is with most things, the legend of Cleopatra gets a lot deeper and more intriguing once you look beneath the surface.
Show the world you’ve got the royal stuff in this sparkling polyester Cleopatra costume. The sleeveless V-neck tank dress includes an attached mesh cape and asymmetrical skirt overlay, with a bodice front covered in gold sequins and trimmed with black and gold ribbon. For accessories, you have a pair of glittering gold lamé armbands and an elastic headband featuring a golden cobra head with a faux gemstone inset. It’s a snazzy looking ensemble to be sure, but don’t forget that there was a lot more to Cleopatra than just good looks.
