Athena Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
How to Make Athena’s Costume
Being known as a goddess of war and wisdom, Athena wears a long white dress, a chest plate, gantlets, a shoulder cover, a belt, leg guards, a Roman warrior helmet, and sandals.
She should also have a spear, a shield, and an owl as a prop since all these are her symbols. If you’d like to recreate this look, grab the items down below in your shopping bag!

One day, Zeus has a terrible headache and it turns out to be Athena coming out of it, wearing full armor. So many believe that Athena is born of Zeus wisdom itself since she has no mother.
The other story is more gruesome, it involves Zeus consuming a goddess who’s pregnant with his child for he fears the prophecy saying that the child will be more powerful than him. Alas, Athena made it out of her father’s head anyway.
