BRAZILIAN MAJESTY, is true to its name. This is truly one of the most creative and flamboyant costumes designed this year.
Prior to the arrival of Europeans in 1500 A.D., Brazil was home to over 1,000 Indian tribes, with a total estimated population of between 5 and 13 million people. BRAZILIAN MAJESTY is a tribute to the rich cultural history of these tribes.
Brilliant color, plumage, and Brazilian symbolism is what this outfit is all about. The back accessory is a sea of green feathers in the center outlined with bright yellow feathers. Large vines lay against the feathers, with two larger-than-life tiger heads prominently displayed, one on each side, and a thrillingly beautiful green parrot (clutching the flag of Brazil in his beak) at the very center top. Home to 60% of the Amazon Rainforest, which accounts for approximately one-tenth of all species in the world, Brazil is considered to have the greatest biodiversity of any country on the planet, and this mind-blowing back accessory is a testament to these facts.
The skirt is fabulously detailed with green and yellow feathers. Animal teeth are affixed to the green, yellow, and blue colorful belted cording which surrounds the skirting and hangs down the front.
And oh the jewelry!! Stunning, multiple wooden and beaded bangles encompass both the left and right wrists to the forearms, brilliantly colored and detailed for you. The many necklaces contain beads, feathers, and teeth, creating a smorgasbord of colors and textures that surround the neck and continue down the front of the chest. Two orange bandana-type pieces of material are tied above each knee, and two blue and yellow woven ankle adornments are also included.
The headpiece is – well – simply astonishing in its splendor! Intricate woven textures surround the front of the headpiece, and strands of beads dangle down each side of the face, with shrunken skulls at the ends! A myriad of green, yellow, and orange feathers sit in the center of the headpiece.
And yes, no detail has been left out – also included is the magnificent eye makeup and body tattoos.The richly woven greens, yellows, and blues of BRAZILIAN MAJESTY incorporate the colors of the Brazilian flag. This one will leave you speechless.
Fit for a leader of men, CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion is pleased to present ROMAN LEGION, created to glorify the ancient Centurians who led this noble nation!
Centurions in the Roman infantry initially commanded a “century” of soldiers (a legion which could contain anywhere from 200 to 1,000 men). During later reforms, this number was reduced to 100 at full strength; hence today we use the word “century” to denote the number 100.
This glorious costume is a feast for the eyes! The bold and masculine chest piece is made of richly dark bronze leather, with golden embellishments prominently displayed at the collar and on the front. A magnificent red cape which hangs below the knees sports double gold piping around the edges. Note the leather strap detailing on the edges of the red capped sleeves of the shirt which lies under the chest piece.
The matching skirt is held in place by a matching leather buckled belt with straps which hang down the front of the skirt and contain flattened gold nails fastened to each piece for an extra touch of fabulous detail! Textured golden armor plates are seen around the forearms and around the legs. The leather strapped and footed sandals are also provided, along with a color-changing HUD to match your skin.
And no warrior would be complete without a magnificent sword and shield, and both are included here! Note that ROMAN LEGION comes with three skirt options for you: one with the weapon in, one with weapon out, and one with the skirt by itself. You choose how you wish to wear this one!
To complete this outfit, a stunning golden helmet is included, with plumes of brilliant red feathers in a mohawk-like fashion on top.
ROMAN LEGION represents brave and powerful leaders -- men who often gave their lives because they led from the front, occupying a position at the front right of the century formation. You, too, can own this bold, magnificent outfit for yourself. Your chariot awaits! Take it to CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion and own this one today!
CHAMPAGNE! Sparkling Fashion proudly presents PORTUGAL de CAMOES, an extravagant, regal tribute to Luís Vaz de Camões, renowned sixteenth century Portuguese poet and considered a major figure in English literature.
PORTUGAL de CAMOES is truly stunning to behold. The white shirt has full sleeves that are detailed with metallic gold trimmings, a high lace collar, and is complimented by an ornately golden textured vest. A majestic richly colored red cape sits atop the left shoulder, draping across the front and covering the back, with ruby jeweled detailing. It is affixed to the shoulder with an additional metallic gold accessory. And the gold does not stop there! Gold armor lies atop the left shoulder and a handsome gold cuff surrounds the left wrist.
The gold pants are covered with intricate pieces of gold armor, a solid gold belt, and matching gold shoes, all detailed with ruby gems, each gem outlined in green piping, with additional green piping on the shoes. The gold, green, and red colors of the entire outfit are symbolic of the colors of the Portuguese flag.
Staying true to the life and legacy of Luís Vaz de Camões, who lost his eye in battle, an eye-patch with the Portuguese flag is provided (an additional red patch, without the flag texture, is included). And befitting the illustrious warrior and beloved hero that he was, a golden crown of leaves sits atop the head.
PORTUGAL de CAMOES is iconic and yet maintains a very fresh and contemporary look. Gentlemen, you will love this amazing and stunningly detailed, richly woven and uniquely created tribute to the beautiful country of Portugal!
