Golden Headdress with a Cobra Emblem

Ankha’s golden headdress is a nod to her Egyptian-inspired design. Search for a headdress featuring a cobra emblem at the center, or create one yourself using gold fabric or craft foam. If you’re feeling extra crafty, you can even add faux gemstones for an added touch of regality.

Black Cat Ears Headband

Since Ankha is a cat character, a black cat ears headband is essential. You can find one at costume shops or online retailers, or create your own using black fabric and a plain headband.

Black Eyeliner for Cat-Eye Makeup

Ankha’s feline features can be emphasized by applying a bold cat-eye makeup using black eyeliner. Experiment with different styles to find the one that best suits your face and captures Ankha’s regal expression.

Yellow Face Paint or Makeup

To mimic Ankha’s distinct yellow complexion, use yellow face paint or makeup to cover your face, neck, and any other exposed skin. Make sure the shade of yellow is rich and warm, resembling the color of Ankha’s fur in the game.

White Sleeveless Dress

Ankha wears a simple white sleeveless dress that reaches just above her knees. Find a similar dress at clothing stores, thrift shops, or online retailers. Ensure the dress is comfortable and allows for easy movement.

Gold Collar Necklace

Accessorize your costume with a gold collar necklace, reminiscent of Egyptian royalty. You can find one at costume stores, online retailers, or create your own using gold fabric or craft materials. Look for a design that features geometric patterns or faux gemstones for added authenticity.

Gold Arm Cuffs

Complete Ankha’s royal ensemble with a pair of gold arm cuffs. These can be found at costume shops, online retailers, or made by wrapping gold fabric or craft foam around your wrists. Make sure they are comfortable and secure enough to stay in place as you move around.

Gold Sandals

Finish off the outfit with a pair of gold sandals to complete the Egyptian-inspired look. You can find these at shoe stores, online retailers, or even create your own by adding gold embellishments to an existing pair of sandals.
