Next year, we are planning to start the trivium or classical education. For those who don’t know what that means, there are three parts of the trivium: grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Each section will go through four periods of history: Ancients, Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation, and Modern Times. Sounds fun, right? There are lots of different activities that you can do for each section and I thought it would be fun to wear costumes while teaching history lessons.
But costumes can be expensive, so I turned to Wholesale Halloween Costumes. They have a wide selection of popular costumes and many are new for 2012. I searched through all categories that would cover the ancients and finally decided on a Roman Empress Adult Costume. This sleeveless costume features:
- Sheath style in white fabric.
- Gold trim around the hem and neckline.
- Red velveteen drape that fastens on the hip.
The stretchy fabric of my new costume makes it very comfortable. The material makes it easy to put the costume on in a jiffy. This momma doesn’t need a costume that is a struggle to put on! The costume itself is almost a perfect fit; It’s good to know that sizing is accurate. My only complaint is that the side slits are a bit high for my taste, but I can always wear a pair of leggings if I am uncomfortable.
Many of the popular costumes for 2012 also have matching accessories that can be purchased separately. My new costume has a number of jewelry pieces such as earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that would complement it well. When searching for the perfect essemble, you will find a wide variety of popular costumes and accessories to choose from. If you are looking for costumes this Halloween or to illustrate a lesson like me, Wholesale Halloween Costumes is a great resource for families on a budget.
