Bastet Egyptian Cat Goddess Halloween Costume

If you are looking for an original and sexy Halloween costume, why not combine the grace and mystery of a cat with the elegance of a Queen of the Nile to make an Egyptian Cat Goddess Costume?

The Egyptians worshipped cats, especially a cat goddess names Bast or Bastet. Her temple was in her city of Bubastis. Her festival day was – guess what – October 31. According to Herodotus, a famous Greek historian who visited Egypt and attended her festival, it was a week-long Mardi Gras with a lot of singing, dancing, and especially drinking of wine.  The last day of her festival, October 31st, they would arrive at Bubastis and end the celebration at her temple, after a week-long boat ride down the Nile, partying all the way. 

The original Bastet in Egyptian art was depicted as a Royal Lady or Princess with a Cat’s Head.  She represented many cat traits, from her name meaning “tearer” to being the goddess of joy and protector of women.  She was often represented with a basket of kittens, depicting her as the protective mother.  The traits of Bastet were grace, mystery, and fierce protectiveness of a lion. 

If you are looking for a unique, beautiful, and sexy costume for Halloween, why not combine a cat costume with a Cleopatra Egyptian costume to make a Bast Cat Goddess costume? 

What could be more perfect than combining the elegance of a Cleopatra Egyptian Costume with Cat Ears or a Cat Mask to make an Egyptian Cat Goddess Halloween costume? The gorgeous look of Cleopatra combined with the sexy grace of a cat? What could be better?
