Greek Goddesses

If you're a group of girls with quite different personalities, then dressing up as Greek Goddesses will give you all flexibility to choose a character that best suits you. 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 less revealing 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.
