Hi friends! It's Natalie sharing a Greek Goddess costume that is perfect for Halloween costumes, fandom convention cosplay or just for a fun themed photo shoot or event. 


I love dressing up and love to dress up all during September and October--just because! I love showing how to make simple costumes that are low cost.


I wore this Greek Goddess costume to church and got lots of attention! 


My local congregation is getting used to me dressing up for church regularly during the year. Might as well keep it fun--right?


The majority of my costumes or cosplay comes from the thrift store.   I scored this toga-like dress from Savers thrift and got the metallic knee-high Collin Stuart gladiator sandals from Mercari.     I was on the hunt for these shoes all last year and couldn't find them...finally I got my hands on a pair--I love them!   I love thrifting!

Learn how to make a laurel wreath crown for a Julius Caesar cosplay or Greek Goddess Costume.

But the laurel wreath crown was tricky. I didn't want to just spray paint fake leaves...although that's a fine option.


I wanted my leaf crown to match the metallic sandals and give a classier vibe.


I decided to use Metallic leather from Cricut and do it all DIY!

Try the headband on during the assembly process so you can see how the leaves contour or flare from your head.


Make the headband balanced on either side but not necessarily exactly symmetrical for variety.

I love the metallic shimmer! 


I love how some leaves stick up like the points of a crown and others lay across my head. 


I love how it turned out!

How to Wear the Greek Goddess Crown:


I braided the front of my hair on each side and combined them in the back. Then I slid the headband on just under the braids. 


It was very secure and comfortable to wear. Great for all day wear!


I love seeing the back of my hair and all those shimmering gray hairs coming in!

Complete the Greek Goddess Costume:


Complete your Greek Goddess costume with strappy sandals, gladiator boots or metallic shoes. 


Find a lightweight/sheer dress from your closet or at the thrift store.


Add make-up or jewelry! I just added gold eyeliner--but a thick cat-eye would be totally appropriate!


Add accessories! A belt would or chunky gold necklace would look great too!

I love simple costumes that come together effortlessly!


This costume would work great for lots of themes too!


Roman or Greek time period. Thor or other Norse theme. Woodland fairy. Mother Earth Vibe. Gladiator. Lord of the Rings. Fantasy. Renaissance fairs. SCA or LARP. Dungeons and Dragons. Cleopatra or Egyptian Vibe. Greek Goddess. Julius Caesar. 


How else would you style this costume?
