Cleopatra Costume Ideas
Everybody knows the ancient Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra, who is commonly known as "Queen of the Nile."
She was a popular and glamorous queen who was well known for her glamorous life - including relationships with Juluis Caesar and Mark Antony.
Cleopatra assumed the throne and began ruling the Egyptian empire at the tender age of 18 and took her own life when she was only 39 years old.
Many famous actresses have played the role of Cleopatra for movies and television, possibly none more famous than Elizabeth Taylor for her role in the 1963 film Cleopatra.
I am the Nile. I will have sons. Isis has told me.

Making Your Own Cleopatra Costume
Here are some pointers to help you think about how you might create and assemble your own Cleopatra outfit:
- She was a glamorous and beautiful woman, so you'll need a gorgeous dress. White is probably the most popular color, but you can easily play the part in a black dress, or even a blue or turquoise dress.
- If your hair is blonde or light brown, you may want to consider darkening it or perhaps buying a dark wig. Think straight with bangs since its the image most of us have of this lovely queen.
- You'll need a Cleopatra style headpiece or headdress of some style. Go with gold beads or a stylish Egyptian looking headband.
- Finish your transformation off with some sexy gold sandals and a golden asp armband.
