Our pals, the Ghostbusters, said it best. When someone asks you if you're a god, you better say yes. But, if you have the option of actually being a goddess, well, that's quite a bit better. Mythology is filled with fantastic stories of divine beings, whether they reside upon a golden mountain like in Disney's Hercules or dwell in ancient pyramids with the Pharaohs. If you are looking to upgrade your Halloween with a little bit of omnipotence, it's definitely time to let your ultimate power shine! Go with a Goddess costume, girl! Our team of in-house designers devoted themselves to creating a line of Made by Us goddess looks we're sure you'll love. Of course, the real question is: which kind of goddess do you want to become? Will you rule over wisdom and show off your incredible IQ or will you play with the fickle hearts of mortals as the goddess of love? Let's give you a tour of the heavens so you can find the deity that will bring a bit of magic to your Halloween.
Greek Goddess Costumes
You can't talk about goddesses without thinking of Greek Mythology. (In fact, we're not sure you can even think of Greece without thinking of goddesses, both ancient and modern!) Greek myth gives us a ton of unique and fascinating deities. Hera is the queen of the gods, always at odds with her lightning-wielding hubby. Hecate is the goddess of magic and witches. (A natural favorite for Halloween, to be sure.) Demeter controls the weather and Artemis is a hunter like no other. Choose one of our Greek Goddess Halloween costumes and add the right accessories to rule over your domain.
Some stories say that the Greek goddess of love and beauty was born out of the sea. Others say that Aphrodite is the daughter of the king of the gods, Zeus. Several stories suggest that she was dainty and couldn't stand the notion of a fight...but those people haven't heard about the Trojan War! (You don't get in good with the God of the Forge without learning a thing or two!) If you want to become one of the most powerful and beloved goddesses in all of mortal history, Aphrodite is for you! Dress up, strike a pose, and get ready for your worshipers!
Athena Goddess Costume
Who is the smartest of the gods in Greek myth? Well, it's actually possible that Athena was the brightest deity in stories across the board. They say that Athena sprang fully-formed right out of Zeus' head while he was trying to solve a tough problem. (If nothing else, it means she was smart enough to skip going to Little Goddess' school.) Don't think that this brainy deity is all about the books, though. She's also the Goddess of War and is constantly undermining the efforts of Ares to start things up. (It is no surprise that Wonder Woman looks up to Athena!)
Muse Goddess Dress
Alright, so there are a ton of Greek gods. We get it, they're all super impressive. But the most outstanding stories are all about the demi-gods! These are the ones that have a bit more interaction with mortals. And, of all of them, the muses are by far the most amazing. Nine muses rule over amazing art and mad science! They're the ones who whisper into the ears of mortals and inspire us to create fantastic music, epic plays...and, of course, fabulous costumes! Bring the magic of the Greek gods to Earth and choose which Muse you'll be in our Grecian goddess looks.
Xena Warrior Princess Costume
How could we possibly talk about Greek mythology without bringing up Xena from the hit TV series!? “But, is she a goddess?” you might be asking. Well, anyone who can go woman-to-god in hand-to-hand combat and come out the winner has got to be hiding a few deific abilities! And, no matter how you look at it, she rocks the warrior look like nobody else. Try out our officially licensed Xena, Warrior Princess costume and you’ll have the other gods feeling worried. Of course, you could team up with a local bard and master thief for a real party!
Egyptian Goddess Costumes
Do you like animals? How about immortality? A wealth of mysterious magic...and don't even get us talking about the architectural masterpieces that you'll be residing in! If you're looking for goddesses with a sense of style, you need look no further than ancient Egypt. Okay, we admit that can be a bit of a hike. (Unless, of course, you've got some anime pals calling up Yu-Gi-Oh or get Doc Brown and Marty to help jump through time.) The Egyptian goddesses are even more diverse than in Greece! From sneaky scorpion goddesses to deities who’ll whoosh her enemies to the four corners, they’re definitely a unique bunch! Deck yourself out in gold and feel the power as an Egyptian Goddess!
Are you ready to become one of the most famous pharaohs in all of Egyptian history? "Woah, she wasn't a goddess!" Yep, we beat you to it. We know that Nefertiti wasn't one of the animal-headed deities that commanded the Nile or tricked Osiris into trouble. But she was the glorious ruler of Egypt before King Tut showed up. That gives her a spot on the golden chariot of the sun, and also makes her part of the Amun Ra tradition! It isn't often that a goddess also gets to be the ruler of people, too. That means all the gold she wants, not to mention fabulous headpieces!
Egyptian Goddess Isis Costume
How bright do you think a goddess could possibly be? Maybe clever enough to slay the previous king of the gods? Well, Isis, the Goddess of Magic, is here to prove that she's even smarter than that! Not only did Isis manage to use her magic to poison Ra, but she also offered to bring him back to life, learned his true name, and then stole away his power to make the sun shine! (That's why she rocks rainbows even better than her buddy, Rainbow Brite!) When you are dressed up as Isis, make sure you spread your wings wide as a symbol of your magical creativity!
Not much can distract the world from a cute cat video. But that's precisely how it was meant to be. Sure, the ancient Egyptian gods have mostly faded from the world...but not ,Bastet! She knew what was up and must have channeled some of those nine lives to remain popular and beloved even into the modern age. Call on the entire world's devotion to felines and rise up as the Egyptian goddess of protection, luck, and the cutest creatures of all: cats! Not only do you get a pretty epic gown, but just think of all the face nuzzles you get with that feline headdress!
Of all Egyptian stories, nothing is quite so well known as the Queen of the Nile’s. Cleopatra is known as the most beautiful woman in history. Helen of Troy? Please. Only one war was fought over her. Both the Egyptian and the Roman epics want to claim this golden goddess as their own. When you decide to dress in a Cleopatra costume, all you need to decide is how elegant you want to go. Dress in a simple gown with a little golden filigree and you’re showing your demure side. Or show your true majesty with all the emeralds and serpent bands you can find!
Women's Goddess Costumes
While the Greek and Egyptian pantheons make up some of the most famous of deities in our history, there are countless myths that you can pull from to step into the heavens and show pride in your power. Sure, that Greek goddess outfit is stunning, but you might find the warrior look of the Norse gods more to your liking. Freyja and Frigg have some mighty magic to unleash, after all, and those Valkyries are the ones deciding who lives and dies! No matter which mythology may your favorite, you'll find goddesses that are empowering the fair and fierce to stand tall—whether they're in heels or not! Take a look at these goddess costumes for women and find your power.
Viking Goddess Costume
From the Valkyries to the wise and foreseeing Vanir, Norse mythology gives us goddesses that one with nature. (Don't tell Thor, but they were also the most popular among the pagans!) When you choose to dress up as a goddess of the Vikings, you can disguise yourself as a mortal. Walk among the brave warriors and skilled artisans. Choose your favorite among the mortals and bless them with invulnerability or grand magic. (Or let them bring you treats in hopes of earning your favor.) All things are possible when you are a Viking goddess like Freyja!
Queen of the Gods Costume
Mortals prostrate themselves in hopes of even brief moments of your attention. But, if that isn't enough for you, there are still higher pedestals to stand upon. And, why shouldn't you aim for the loftiest of goals? (Nobody wants to rest their laurels at a mid-point on Olympus, after all.) If your ambition is ruling over the gods, too, then you need to pick a royal goddess costume that makes you a queen! Keep those lowly deities in line by selecting a look that is regal, beautiful, and bold! A gleaming drape and a powerful pose will ascend you to the highest peaks!
Sexy Goddess Costume
Some deities prefer to dwell in the darker places. Shadows cling to them and the other gods tremble whenever they approach. Are they evil? Wicked witches? Maybe her enigmatic might is just too alluring to ignore. Of course, the goddess who commands such enigmatic might isn't going to tell anyone! There's always an Aphrodite Halloween costume when you want to be a sexy goddess...but becoming a dark goddess with an edge may be a better way. Add sheer black to contrast perfectly with your gleaming gold and all eyes will be on you!
Golden Goddess Halloween Costume
Every mythology has a story of how the sun rises and how light fills the world. We also can't help but note that folks talk about the Golden Goddess as one of the most beautiful of all deities out there. We figure there has to be a pretty strong relationship. If you'd like to be a goddess who truly lights up the room, try a goddess costume that features a radiant golden glow. Not only will you feel light as air, but you'll be a beacon for everyone else, too. (Plus, something as simple as a little LED light will make for a pretty on-point display of your power.)
Goddess Costume Ideas
Sometimes, you need to go a little off-book and just be your own goddess. We're pretty sure that each of them did that anyway. But if you want to come up with a goddess identity that is all your own, you can start with a fantasy costume base and add the right accessories to create a brand new queen of the local godly pantheon. Combine a Roman toga look with some of our animal costumes and accessories to become a feral deity. Try a sheer waist scarf and golden chains to make an Arabian goddess that would put that genie magic to shame. You could even trade that golden crown of laurels for an angel's halo (or a pair of devil wings) to show that you're among the exclusive American gods!
Goddess Costumes for Kids
Goddesses aren't just for adults. The kiddos can join the fun, too! While you're commanding from the clouds, your little godling can make all of the flowers bloom here on Earth! We have goddess costumes for toddlers to teens, many of them in our Made by Us styles. If your little one is smart as a whip, a darling Athena drape is perfect. Whether your youngster has her sight set on ruling the Nile or is staking a claim on something else entirely, you'll find there's plenty of room in the heavens for her with one of our goddess costumes for girls.
Warrior Goddess Costumes
Are you the type of goddess who likes to get her hands dirty? The world has a bunch of strange monsters and wicked gods that need to be taken down and you're hardly going to wait for a knight to show up and swear to defeat them for you. Pick up a gleaming sword and show that you're a goddess of warriors! Get your gauntlets ready, because you'll be able to stand against anything when you dress as a gladiator goddess. All you need next is a monster to fight. (Dare we suggest you go with a goddess couples costume featuring your beau as a baddie!?)
Greek Goddess Costume Accessories
Once you have your goddess costume set, it is time to get down to the details. Give your Greek goddess a little nuance with the right accessories. A serpentine headdress transforms you into the mythic Medusa while the right choice in wig may be the difference between Athena and Aphrodite. Try a laurel of flowers for Demeter, the goddess of nature, or dive into the occult as Hecate when you wear a pentacle around your neck and bring your witches to bear!
Egyptian Goddess Costume Accessories
The ancient Egyptian goddesses knew how to turn the golden sands into gleaming style. Bolster your Egyptian sensibilities with accessories that call on the allure of the Pharaohs. Serpentine armbands are easy to wear and can really bring your goddess costume together. Animal masks can highlight your dominion over the mythical beasts of Egypt, too. And, when it is time to pose for a picture, get that ancient ankh ready to go!
