I made the infinity dress from two curtain panels purchased at the thrift store. There's a side zipper. The necklace is a copy of one I saw on etsy, and the crown is a smaller version I saw for $50. It's made of card stock and a headband.

You look so elegant as Cleopatra!  I love the idea of using an infinity dress and the material you chose looks pretty much perfect!   Grin  The makeup, headpiece and necklace were a super nice touch too.  Great job!

Beautiful but not historically accurate. The crown is a good facsimile of the true Vulture Crown the head wife of the pharoah would wear but while an infinity dress "looks authentic" it is not.

Good job on a first try!

It was a Halloween costume. And not meant to be historically accurate. There will not be another "try."
