Dressing up is fun. One gets to be anyone and anything that they want to be. From a celebrity, an alien, a mythical creature or even a mythical Greek God if they see it fit to. There are kids and teens who love celebrities from their favorite superhero movies like superman and batman, and then there are those who are more in touch with their history and Greek mythology and love being Greek gods for a night exercising their all awesome and mighty power on their subjects. Speaking of Greek gods, Zeus, Apollo, Artemis, Hera, Poseidon and Athena are character gods who feature in many of the modern movies. Heading out into a store, you can get any of the character costumes for your teen. But before you do so, you should think it through first probably have a conversation with your daughter regarding the same. Chances are, of all the named gods above, she will go with Athena.
Athena is the Olympian goddess of wisdom. Of the three goddesses history teaches us of, she was the only one who remained a virgin, never getting married or falling into the sweet enchantments of the goddess of love, Aphrodite. While there is a lot to be told of this mythical Greek goddess, romance is not one of them. And this is probably one of the main reasons why teenage girls look to be her any chance they get, during Halloween and Greek themed events in school.
If you walk into many of the local costume stores, you will find many costumes designed to give the Athena look. They come in a wide variety of colors and designs. This makes the choosing more of a daunting task and complex to say the least – especially if you are working on a deadline. That said, and to help you land the best there is in the market, we have taken the liberty to provide you with a review of one of the best Greek Goddess Athena Costume.
Have your teenage daughter in this costume and you will be in awe of the transformation that will take place.

When getting costumes, especially if you are shopping online, it is imperative that you get the sizing right. Sure many online stores will provide you with the option of returning it in the event it does not fit, but take into account the time that you will used up waiting for it to arrive and the amount of time that you will waste returning it and waiting for the company to send you another one. The best thing about this Athena costume for kids is the fact that it comes clearly labelled in sizes and the ages recommended for the particular sizes;small, medium or large. With the labelling, you cannot go wrong, even if you do not know what size your daughter is (highly unlikely), the age recommendations will do just fine.
Different costumes and designs accentuate lady curves differently.It can however be very difficult to judge just by looking at it. Where do the lines fall? Will they accentuate just the right places?
