Clash of the Titans is coming out tomorrow and everyone in my family is really looking forward to seeing it. As with the much anticipated movie release, we are equally excited about the Clash of the Titans costumes. It’s a chance for use to share with our children something that was a memorable part of our childhoods. Allow me to explain.
Everyone in my family loves Greek mythology. A strange thing to like you might say but oddly, it was a big part of our childhood. We all went to a small Catholic Elementary school and had a 5th grade teacher who was insane over Greek Mythology. You’d think 10-11 years old would be a bit young to delve into the Iliad and the Odyssey or that it’s a bit strange for Greek mythology to be taught in Catholic school but don’t tell that to Mrs. Casey. Greek Mythology was so much a part of the entire 5th and 6th grades that we even had our own intramural Greek Olympics and the school plays were always based on myths so actually, I was exposed to Greek mythology since the first grade. Ironically, I was in the 6th grade when the original Clash of the Titan’s movie was made. I was excited to see that one and will happily see this one too.
Clash of the Titans tells the story of Perseus, the half-mortal son Zeus who embarks on a mission to stop Hades, the god of the underworld from wreaking havoc on the universe. Battling evil demons and hideous beasts, Perseus’ only chance of survival is to realize his power as a god and accept is new destiny.
The Clash of the Titans costumes depict men in their finest form, muscular and brave; beasts in their most hideous deformity and women in their most feminine allure. The Perseus costume features an armor covered tunic with matching wrist guards and leg guards. It has a sword and shield that are sold separately. The costume of Calibos, the once human, but how hideous beast is perfected by the well crafted mask that is also available. The Athena costume is so beautiful with is gold detailing and high slit gown. Greek costumes have always been favorites of mine and Clash of the Titans costumes are no exception.
All of the Clash of the Titans costumes and accessories for men, women and children will be available this summer with plenty of time for Halloween at Costume SuperCenter.
