It’s a Toga Party!
What is more fun than to wrap oneself seductively in a silky piece of fabric? Tie it off at the shoulder. Use a shiny belt buckle or broach for further luxuriant detail.

Drink wine and eat excessively! The Romans were well known for enjoying a rollicking good time, and their gods reflect this
[box type=”info”]Did you know it was well practiced to keep a pigeon feather on hand to tickle the back of ones throat to expel ones recent excessive indulgences, so one may continue to indulge and gorge oneself further![/box]
There are many gods and goddesses to choose from and many ways to accessorise your tunic or toga.
Golden belts, fruit or leafy headpieces, silky bound ropes to hug the fabric to your body.
Strappy sandals, and jangly jewels.
If you have no budget, grab an old white sheet, hold it at the corners so it forms a triangle, wrap it around your body once, meet the corners above one shoulder, tie the corners in a knot and rest the knot on the shoulder. Bingo Bongo, instant Ancient Roman.
Grab a length of over growing ivy from the neighbours fence, secure it into a wreath with some twine or a cable tie, plonk it on your crown and BAM, extra gold stars to you for effort.
If you have the time and space, grab some gold spray from a budget store or hardware, find a deep old box, and spray the ivy wreath carefully, so that you don’t breath the paint and the paint doesn’t fly in the air and land on other things, like car duco in the garage. It’s a dangerous practice so make sure you are wearing the right mask and goggles which you can buy in a hardware store. It may take a few layers and time between layers to. Easy does it in a well ventilated area away from wind, your lungs, eyes and other objects.
