Dictator and Presidents Costumes

Dictator and President Costumes

A dictator is a political leader who possesses absolute power. The word originates from the Roman Republic where it was the title of a magistrate appointed by the Senate to rule the republic in times of emergency. Like the term "tyrant" (which was originally a respectable Ancient Greek title), "dictator" came to be used almost exclusively as a term for oppressive, even abusive rule. Thus, in modern usage, the term "dictator" is generally used to describe a leader who holds or abuses an extraordinary amount of personal power. Here at Karnival Costumes, we'v an impressive collection of dictator costumes including some "carry-me" outfits - well no self respecting dictator would want to walk too far himself! We've also included some presidents and prime minister costumes where it's appropriate.... Whichever you choose, we're sure you won't have to wait too long before someone talks to you! Rember, not all dictators are presidents and not all presidents are dictators - but they do all make great fany dress outfits.
