  • If you can't wait to get into a seductive, revealing costume then dress up as Aphrodite.
  • If you're looking for a costume that's fierce then why not dress up as Athena, the goddess of war?
  • Do you prefer the gothic look? Then Persephone, queen of the Underworld would be the ideal costume choice for you.
