HalloweenCostumes

She of the Ointment JarBastet was known as an intensely fierce cat goddess that was in charge of defending the pharaoh. While her name translates to, "she of the ointment jar", she doesn't actually have anything to do with cold cream. This fierce lion goddess has been around for about four-thousand years. Bastet's symbols decorated both the pharaoh's chambers as well as the jewelry of mothers and women who wanted to be mother's. The idea was, like a house cat, she would be tender to her young and fierce to anyone who might threaten those under her care. She sounds like a goddess we wouldn't mind having around!Details & DesignMake sure Bastet has your back when you dress up in an Egyptian costume this Halloween. This plush black and gold cat is Made by Us meaning it has little details added by our in-house designers like the dignified striped ears and intelligent face.

Smiffys Women's Red High Priestess Costume
RM 272.00
HalloweenCostumes

Priestesses of any faith are an enigmatic figure and a potentially frightening one, too. They speak with conviction and certainty. They command respect, even amidst their enemies. And, occasionally, they call upon mighty powers that those who witness can only speculate from where it comes. Even when they speak of their mighty lord, their one god, their flaming prince or emperor of light, we are all left wondering if this priestess is truly a proxy for such a powerful divine being or if they are somehow enacting a trick instead of a miracle.No matter what they are doing, it is hard to argue with that dominating eye. Ultimately, we find ourselves following wherever we are bad. We may achieve tasks that we do not understand for goals that we’ll never be fully explained. All the while, we wait in desperate hope that we will once again see evidence of the priestess’s divine power. Or, perhaps, we do as she commands out of the terrified hope that we will never again see her unleash her strange and exotic magic.No matter what your followers choose to believe, all that is important is that they have faith in you as you have faith in your calling. For you are become like unto a lord of light when you step into this Red High Priestess costume. This lovely and powerful red v-neck pullover gown has a fitted bodice with elegantly flared, hanging sleeves, giving you the noble look that you have earned while the brocade ribbon belt bound around your waist shows a blend of humble means and divine wrath. The crushed velvet cape with faux leather flaps will keep you warm in the chill winter… as though you ever feared the cold while alongside your flame! This may be enough or perhaps you seek some skull or divine ornament accessories, or even a vivid red wig to complete your holy look.

California Costume Collection Kid's Valiant Knight Costume
RM 104.60
HalloweenCostumes

It takes a tough kid to be a knight, and it takes an even tougher one to slay a dragon! Your little one is the stoutest knight in the land, and a stout knight needs a solid suit of armor. Equip them with this Valiant Knight Costume before they head out on their next epic quest, and they'll be ready for any foe with whom they cross paths!At first glance, knights may just seem like any old soldier from medieval times, riding into battle in a suit of shiny armor and getting into sword duels with villains. But there's actually a lot more to being a valiant knight who can save the day against the bleakest of odds, which your kid may being preparing for as we speak. Perhaps you've noticed your wee-knight training for a life of excitement and honor (possibly with the family dog acting as their squire) in the backyard. They might be using a stick in place of a trusty longsword, but they can still fight against ferocious beasts and protect defenseless townsfolk from certain doom!A knight of such gallantry needs armor worthy of their deeds, and this costume is the perfect attire for the task. The chain mail hood is made of metallic knit mesh, resembling real steel mail, while the foam gauntlets have the look of heavy metal armor, without being heavy or clunky. Add a fierce looking toy sword and shield to go with your knight's chivalrous new garb, and songs will be sung for ages about their daring exploits!

Five Reasons Why Everyone Should Read History Books

History books are accounts of past happenings that occurred throughout human civilization which might have direct and indirect impact on how we live today. Living in this time of rapid change and constant technological development, many individuals today might find that history is no longer significant as we prefer to envision on where we are heading towards instead of reflecting on where we came from. However, there are still important values that we can learn from the history of mankind as we look forward into the future. Find out why everyone should still read history books below.

As Highly Detailed Accounts of Past Events

History books are one of the most important sources of information that we have regarding past events and occurrences. They give a highly-detailed account on a given event or period in history: more so than any documentary can give. Many present archaeologists and researchers are able to unravel important findings and ancient wonders today thanks to the thorough descriptions that were mentioned in these history books.

To Know More About Our Origins

Have you ever wondered why Malaysia has a multi-racial population today? Through history books, you will have a better insight on why people of different races, religions, and culture settled down in Malaysia. You will also find out other interesting facts such as what methods did they use to enter the country with and how did they made a living for themselves in a foreign land so far away from their motherland. Knowing these facts not only widens your general knowledge, but it also enables you to trace back your origins.

So That We Do Not Repeat Past Mistakes

Spanish philosopher, George Santayana once said, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Throughout human history, countless mistakes were made by our forefathers and past leaders, many of which we can learn something from. Delving into history enables us to understand their failings, to learn from them, and to find ways to improve on their mistakes. Humans have a bad habit of making the same mistakes, hence history books serve as a reminder for us to not repeat similar mistakes again.

So That We Appreciate the Sacrifices of our Forefathers and Ancestors

Many lives were sacrificed throughout the countless wars and battles fought throughout human history. Many of our forefathers and ancestors probably had a part to play in those wars – expanding the glory and influence of their nation, defending their homeland from being conquered by foreign authorities, and so on. Their sacrifices are recorded in history books and by reading them, we will understand more about their valiant efforts and bravery which will allow us to appreciate the sacrifices they had made.

As Preparation for the Future

Although many might argue that what happened in the past will not be relevant today, there are many lessons that we can obtain from the past to make us more well-prepared for the future. For example, when making new policies and decisions, governments often look at a similar situation that occurred in the past to determine its feasibility in the future.
