A Bacchus without grapes?



Aphrodite


Product Description
Almost everyone has heard of Aphrodite. But not everyone knows that she was the goddess of love, beauty and passion in ancient Greece. Pure as the driven snow, our Aphrodite's himation (toga) is sewn to the classic peplos (tunic) at one end – the other can be fastened with a hook and loop fastener. The elegant peplos has an elasticized waist and is closed at the back. Be as creative as the Greek Goddess of Innocence with how you wear the matching headband. Wait a minute: this sexy costume is the aphrodisiac in fabric form for any "toga" party.
Material:100 % polyester

Bacchus


  • Costume, 3-piece
  • With chiton tunic
  • With himation cape
  • With cord sash
  • Without grapes, jewelry or shoes

Product Description

Bacchus is not only the god of wine, he is also in charge of fertility. That must be why no holds were barred at the Bacchanalia – the Roman festival held in honor of Bacchus. The wine poured like a waterfall and the rites they performed were more like orgies. These days, Bacchus has calmed down: after all, he's a few millennia older. Instead of impressing his followers with his ability to hold his alcohol, he relies on his classic outfit: a chiton with an elegantly casual himation. A truly heavenly look!

Greek scholar

With tunic
With headband
With cloak
Without scroll
Product Description: Whether proficient Pythagoras or adroit Archimedes, the classic Greek scholars are still known today for their rich spirit of invention, deep thirst for knowledge and modest attire. The chiton (tunic) and headband of this Greek Scholar are in pure white and his chlamys (cloak) is trimmed with the famous Greek key pattern. In this costume, you can explain your treatise for hours at a time or cloak your desire to meet people as wisdom.

King Agamemnon

(note the pseudo-parchment resolving once and for all its use in Mycenaean times - unless he's reading an Egyptian letter or something)


Product Description: King Agamemnon was the leader of the Greek army during the ten-year siege of Troy. We aren't convinced that he dreamed up the idea of the Trojan horse himself. But it's true that the general led his army to victory thanks to the legendary horse trick. Of course his military uniform can't provide the high level of wearing comfort and elegant look of the dark blue and golden royal robe. Today's King Agamemnon enjoys the comfortable tunic with a sewn-on cloak. A large, blue rhinestone gleams on the belt. Peace can look just as interesting as war!

@lemon

Μα όλη τσαχπινιά του στο ροζ είναι! Ελπίζω να έχεις σταφύλια πρόχειρα, εφόσον δεν τα παρέχει η στολή

(κι εγώ προτιμώ τον Αγαμέμνονα με κόκκινο, πορφυρό, κάτι πιό βασιλικό)
