Whether you want to walk like an Egyptian (apologies to the Bangles) or strut your stuff as Cleopatra, one of the most iconic Queens ever, you’re going to need about five items to pull it off in style. The foundation of your costume will be a black pleated dress from neck to ankles, a gold sequined collar, belt and arm cuffs. And to top it off a golden jeweled headband. Most of these items you may already have at your disposal, but for the ornate jeweled head piece, you may want to find a replica of what Cleopatra wore, online.

Remember that footwear is also important for this type of costume. You don’t want to be wearing ordinary shoes, but rather something like a strappy sandal or high heel.
