Halloween Series: Persephone from Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Movie!

Hey True Believers!

Today’s Halloween look is my recreation of Persephone from the Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief movie (Yay a sequel is coming August 2013!)! This movie is one of my favorite fun films (those films that you just enjoy for the fun factor and you’re not looking for anything deep in) and Rosario Dawson was GORGEOUS in this movie (and I LOOOVED how positively naughty she was lol)! I also have a fondness for the Greek goddess Persephone (I don’t know why, just love the whole idea of her!) and LOVED Rosario’s portrayal of her in the movie.  When her husband Hades, god of the underworld, lets her back up on earth to visit her mother, it’s Spring and Summer, but when she has to return to him, it becomes Autumn/Fall and Winter. So right now, she’s in the underworld with him which makes it a perfect time to do a look based on her portrayal in the movie. I tried to get as close as I could to the look, so forgive me if it’s not identical! This look also was great for me to recreate because my skin tone is similar to Rosario’s.

I hope you like!

    1. Thank you Sarah! I didn’t think anyone would care for this because its not my usual bright and artsy looks! I did this one kind of to amuse myself since most people tag my looks as Halloween daily lol.

  1. Ugh, you make a stunning Persephone! Love Rosario’s ripped dress, your version is fantastic too, did you do it yourself? I just recently saw Percy Jackson for the first time and I did love it! I have a really bad crush on Logan Lerman (Damn his beautiful face!), but I’ve always loved Greek mythology so I was bound to like the film too!
