Arabian Fancy Dress Costumes

Arabian Costumes for Men
Arabian costumes vary greatly and there are many options available for creating an authentic look. I'll be discussing Arabian Princess and Belly Dancer outfits for ladies a little further down the page, but let me start with the costumes for Gents.

There are several types of Arabian styles that you could choose from, and they range from modern day oil sheikhs to the old school ali baba style sheikh who carries a sword. Alternatively, you could transform yourself into a more pantomime-style or theatrical character such as a genie, Aladdin, a Prince or Sultan. Accessories such as a sword or genie lamp (see further down page) can be used to create your ideal look.

These Sheikh costumes were all under £15 and the styles are pretty varied. You can add sunglasses for an oil sheikh look or a sword for a more theatrical appearance.

Replica Wayfarer's can be bought for £2.24 inc. delivery and despite the price, the customer ratings have been very favourable.

Now, this costume I really like and it includes a white gown, headpiece and belt and comes in a Display Bag. There are several suppliers selling this one on Amazon and prices range from around £21-£31, so I have linked to all of them under the picture above so that you can get the very best price.

As you can see the styles for the Aladdin/Genie costumes vary enormously and it's down to personal taste (and availability) which one you go for.

One costume which stands out from the crowd in terms of quality is this one. It's been highly-rated by customers at Amazon, and although it's certainly not cheap at £28.09, it does have a more superior appearance and includes a long sleeved white shirt, waistcoat, black trousers, golden belt and a hat. It's ideal for an Aladdin or Sultan look.

You can add a sword or genie lamp to create the look you desire.
