Mathematicians and engineers created technology that enabled them to build incredible temples and pyramids. These monuments still exist and they entrance both adults and children today.
One of the most famous monuments is the Great Sphinx, which has the body of a lion and the head of a man. Made of limestone, it is oldest known monument and is believed to be at least 4,500 years old. Legends say that ancient visitors would press their ear to the statue's lips seeking words of wisdom from the Sphinx. We carry several costumes of Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egyptian. She was in love with Rome's Julius Caesar and bore him a son. After Caesar's death she wed Marc Antony and had children with him. In the 1990s, divers found a sphinx off the coast of Alexandria. It had the head of Cleopatra's father. It is this mix of myth and history that makes ancient Egypt so enthralling.
The Arabian world has its fair share of fables, including tales of genies. The most famous is the genie of the lamp from the tale of Aladdin. Disney made an adaptation of this story, which included a beautiful princess named Jasmine. Fans of Jasmine can wear one of our licensed costumes.
