Deluxe Marie Antoinette Women's Costume
Marie Antoinette is well known for living a lavish life of luxury. Her whole life was spent living in the finest clothes at the biggest estates, with anything she might ever want at her fingertips. However, all of these assets and all of these possessions are what ended up costing her everything.
The French Revolution was a bad time to be in the spotlight in France. People were scared and angry, and that combination leaves people looking for someone to blame. Who better to blame than the Monarch and his wife? She spends lavishly and she has way more than she needs, while the rest of the people have nothing! It's simply not fair. Do we think it should have resulted in a trip to guillotine though? Definitely not. The French Revolution was a wild, violent time. We can't say we would have liked to be there!
This costume is a fun take on Marie Antoinette's Luxurious style! The dress comes in gold and blue and has lace sleeves with ruffled collars. The gold lining throughout the costume reminds us of colonial times! We've also included the gold choker to match the dress. After all, accessories are important when portraying Marie Antoinette! Lastly comes the bow. The bow is on the back of the dress and is a full eleven inches across! It's attached to the back of the dress using a pin and serves as the finishing touch to an impressively rich costume.
When you dress up as Marie Antoinette, we challenge you to not make the same mistakes that she did. Don't lose yourself in the money and the possessions! If you do, well hopefully it doesn't end up costing you your head! Good luck, and remember, you don't need to spend to have fun!
