Mens Gladiator Costume
Fight your enemies and conquer your lady’s heart in a gladiator costume this Halloween!
Gladiators were one of the fiercest warriors of all the Roman Empire. They were trained slaves or enemy soldiers captured from the armies defeated by the Romans in their military campaigns. Even though they were mainly used for entertainment purposes, their strength was highly appreciated by the public and even by their masters.
If you wish to be a tough warrior this Halloween, this disguise will highlight all your physical traits (whether you actually have them or not – come on, Halloween is a fun time to pretend!)
At the same time it will take you back to a time where there were no guns – only brute physical strength, a skilled hand at a sword and good training were required to defeat the enemy. A fair fight I must say!
Those who are looking for something quite spectacular will love this gladiator costume. It is made up of a black tunic, a black matching cape and beautiful armor which consists of an armor chest and shoulders, wrist guards, armor shirt, shin guards and an amazing face helmet.
This costume will win whatever Halloween costume competition you will compete it!
This wonderful ancient Roman costume will protect you from your enemy’s swords and at the same time will provide you with the freedom of movement you need to be active all night long. The costume includes a burgundy roman-style tunic, black pants, shiny gold faux leather top and boot covers.
Dressed up in this awesome, yet very comfortable gladiator costume you will be on the move all night long and nothing will stay in your way!
To complete the costume you can also purchase a gladiator helmet and the short Roman sword to defend yourself from all possible dangers.
Simplicity is what characterizes you? If yes, then take a look at this gorgeous, yet simple and comfortable ensemble. It consists of a brown knit tunic with golden details applique on it, a brown matching cape attached to it and a toy sword with case.
Your opponents will not stand a chance in front of you! For a dangerously hot couple outfit pair this costume with the Babe-A-Lonian Warrior Woman Adult Costume. Two are always stronger than one!
The costume is made up of a decorated armor collar, a strap disposed on the diagonal on your chest and a roman kilt. Who can resist such a sexy and powerful gladiator?
Gladiator shows started in the 3rd century BC and were a great source of entertainment for the roman people. The gladiators, mainly war prisoners and slaves, were forced to fight other gladiators, or even animals.
When one gladiator was defeated, it was the public who decided whether he should live or he should be killed in the arena by his opponent – if he put up a good and (more importantly) entertaining fight, he would survive for another battle.
This tradition survived even in the periods in which the empire was in a critical economic situation and it co-existed with the Christian religion until the 5th century AD. Emperors and senators attended the battles and even sponsored the organization of these events.
The building testament of the Colosseum in Rome is a superb example of craftmanship – it would actually still be nearly complete, not half-crumbled as you see it today. This is because, in the middle ages, people used this massive structure as a stone quarry to build other houses!
