Egyptian Characters - Who Will You Wake From the Dead?
The protector of graves, Anubis is found scattered throughout Egyptian art and history both tending tombs and helping the dead journey into the afterlife. His head is of a jackal because these creatures were often seen around graveyards in Egypt, most likely savaging the graves.
"Rich and poor, young and old, all are equal in death." – From Gods
Because she was the last active pharaoh of Egypt and had associations with other famous rulers like Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, Cleopatra didn't need to do much to become the story of legends. Yet in her short life, she portrayed herself as the reincarnation of Egyptian god Isis and was a political powerhouse heard and felt around the ancient world.
"Never enough hours in the days of a queen, and her nights have too many."
Ancient Egyptians revered cats, creating cat goddesses and mummifying pet cats so their "ka" could be reborn in the afterlife. Cats were domesticated to keep rats from eating the grain, and because of this trait, they were identified as demi-gods, making them important members of society.
"In ancient Egypt, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this." – Unknown
From palace guards to warriors, ancient Egyptian men were powerful and mighty. They were involved with the building of the pyramids, protecting the pharaoh and strengthening Egypt against invading forces. You can portray the strength of this mighty warrior when dressed in this Egyptian Man costume.
"If his heart rules him, his conscience will soon take the place of the rod." – Egyptian proverb
Cleopatra claimed she was the reincarnation of the Goddess Isis, who was worshipped as the figure portraying motherhood. Egyptians also gave Isis high regard as the symbol of wives, the friend of the downtrodden and the goddess of children. Pharaohs reining over Egypt were believed to have received their power from Isis.
"I have come to be a protector unto thee." – from funeral chamber speech
Mummies often get the "bad guy" image in most movies, but our Hotel Transylvania mummy costume allows for plenty of fun. In ancient Egypt, when rulers died, they were mummified so their spirit could find their body in the afterlife. As a mummy, you can be either the bad guy or the good guy at your next costume party.

"So is Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on
him." - Bible
Queen Nefertiti was the wife of Akhenaten, one of Egypt's pharaohs. She is most well-known for a bust of her head, created by the sculptor Thutmose. Egypt was at its wealthiest during her husband's rule, and her beauty was the source of many stories.
