Ancient Greek Dresses by Ninidu Ancient Greek Dresses by Ninidu
A while ago I uploaded some doodles, that I did as part of a research for the Eros and Psyche project, about ancient greek hairstyles. So I thought I'd share some dress doodles I did as well.

They are all 100% accurate (drawn off vases of the era written above each dress) so feel free to use them as reference!

you can find the ones about hairstyles

Are you familiar with League of Legends? Anyway, this could be very useful for the teams at Riot Games when building a region of the game called Targon, which is based off of ancient Greek and Roman culture.

I love these! I've been looking at some of your work and it's amazing! I love your style and ancient Greek stuff too. I would totally "watch" you, except a few of the pictures are a little too.... "mature", for me, that is. Anyway, your art is awesome! Great job! :D

 I admit that I have a very soft spot for Costume throughout the Ages, even if Fashion does rather leave me as cold as a linen chiton in a snowstorm.:D (Big Grin)

Would you know how to make some of these as costumes? How much cloth you'd need, where to pin, etc?

I may have to bookmark some of your designs--I'm really impressed with your research. My fantasy novel-in-progress has an assumed Ancient Greek culture and technology level and your clothing and hair designs should make excellent references. Thanks so much for posting these!
