Playing Cleopatra

7 04 2012

The following images are details of a Cleopatra costume c. 1960.  Made from durable linen, it is printed with a mash-up of motifs.  Looks like the secret to Sphinxy’s great hair has been revealed!  Is there anything those crafty Egyptians didn’t invent?

Just read this interesting article of a rare pin made from King Tut relic that visited the World’s Fair here in 1962, thought you’d get a kick out of it too.
