Truth be told, there are very few references of mythical Greek deities as children. Perhaps this is because their stories would not be exciting enough, or simply because some of them, like Athena for example, were born fully grown and clad in armor – they are supposed to be gods and goddesses after all, so everything is possible.
Still that does not prevent many young girls from imagining themselves as their favorite Greek goddess. They see these deities as models of exemplary beauty, intelligence and courage that they wish to emulate. It also helps that their mothers and older sisters also like wearing Greek goddess costumes. And to be honest, young girls look good in the flowing costumes of Greek goddesses.
These days there are many Greek goddess costumes conveniently available through internet merchants. Here are three good ones:
