Greek Goddess Persephone by Lillyxandra Greek Goddess Persephone by Lillyxandra
The Persephone costume is finished! This was one of those costumes that inspires you to work on it all day then look forward to working at it again the next morning till its done. That silk fabric is so much fun to play with. Once the breeze catches it flows around so elegantly.

Her story is that of a innocent maiden who was picking flowers with some nymphs in a field in Enna when Hades came to abduct her, bursting through a cleft in the earth. Hades tricked her into eating pomegranate seeds, which forced her to return to the underworld for the winter each year. When Demeter and her daughter were united, the Earth flourished with vegetation and color, but for some months each year, when Persephone returned to the underworld, the earth once again became a barren realm. This is an origin story to explain the seasons.

When designing for this costume I see different avenues to choose from. Her Underworld costume that would be fall/winter colors or her spring/summer costume that would be a warm pallet. Designing around my customers looks we decided she would pull off the spring colored innocent maiden beautifully.

You can read about how I made this costume on my site

That gown is very beautiful. I'm happy that someone made something in relation to persephones. I love the story of persephones and that dress suits her well. I like how half of the outfit is purple and that it matches her symbolism.
