At school I am always overhearing conversations among some of my friends about the book series Percy Jackson. I spent my last summer studying Greek mythology so i know a good bit about the gods and goddesses stories. The stories are very unique and interesting to know. Why is a 13-year-old studying Greek mythology during her summer recess? Because my mom made me. ūüôā She said that I need to be cultured and that was one of the things I studied last summer. Maybe I can share with you what other things I studied last summer. I read Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief but haven’t had time to read any of the other books yet. There are already movies over the first two books out, they aren’t as good as the book, but I don’t believe any movie is.
In Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief, the main character’s name is Percy Jackson. Percy has always been a kid who got into trouble and never did good because he thought he was dyslexic. Percy doesn’t find out he is¬†a demi god until him, his friend Grover, and his mom get attacked by a Minotaur.¬†The¬†Minotaur¬†perishes Percy’s mom. Percy and¬†Grover stumble on to camp half blood where he meets¬†Chiron and Anna Beth. Percy knows he is a¬†demi god but he didn’t know whose son he was. He later figures out during a¬†game of¬†capture the flag (when a¬†projection of a¬†trident appeared above him), he was the son of Poseidon. That¬†meant that Percy inherited Poseidon’s¬†water powers, he has the same¬†powers Poseidon has, yet¬†not as powerful.¬†That is bad news for Percy because the three god brothers (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades)¬†had an oath where they would no longer have children.¬†Poseidon needed help from his¬†son at the time because Zeus kept accusing Poseidon of taking the bolt. What Poseidon asks of¬†Percy is to find the bolt and prove him innocent, which meant he had to go to the underworld because Poseidon thinks that Hades might have taken¬†it. Percy didn’t want to go¬†at first, but he figured that was the only way to get his mom back after the Minotaur perished her.¬†Grover¬†(a satyr that¬†protects him) and Anna¬†Beth (daughter of Athena)¬†went along with him on his journey. They¬†battle¬†many obstacles trying to gather little pearls that will¬†let them into the underworld.
I started thinking about how cool it would be to create a Percy Jackson outfit, it was fun to research. I used a white shirt with a long blue and flowy skirt because Percy Jackson had water powers that were inherited from his father. I used blue and gold cuff links because when I¬†think about¬†Greek outfits from mythology times, I have always seen¬†cuff links being used. The¬†earrings to me looked like they had a design you might find¬†on some pottery or plates they used to make. The head band also looked very¬†Greek as well so I¬†included it in the outfit. The purse is silver and gold to go along with all the accessories.¬†I kept the shoes blue because I wanted to keep the attention on the rest of the outfit.¬†I would love to¬†wear this outfit because¬†it would make me feel like I’m a water goddess myself,¬†that’s until I try doing some cool trick and it doesn’t¬†work.

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Zebra Plate

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Zebra Plate teen fashion blog
Time flies when you are having fun…NOT! Finally back to school today after two weeks of recess due to a winter storm and winter break. I have to admit it felt good to be¬†able to go back to school today and see my friends. What is not cool is the teachers piling on the homework to try and¬†catch us up due to all the days missed. Luckily I anticipated the teachers’ frenzy and used the days that I was out of school to get ahead with my blog posts. Yay! This is my 50th post in a row and I didn’t want to miss it. One of my goals when I started the blog was to write sixty days in a row. Ten more days and I should be¬†able to accomplish it.
My inspiration for this outfit was this cute zebra plate my mom pinned to one of her decoration boards. I liked the shades of blue used and the modern overall feeling of the plate. As I have mentioned before inspiration can come to you from pretty much anywhere, even a plate. ūüôā I tried to use different shades of blue to capture the hues of the plate. I felt I needed to work with a zebra pattern so I used a more modern version of the pattern with the top. My vision of modern also included a mix of styles in the outfit, grunge, preppy, modern and punk. Sometimes eclectic outfits like this one turn out ¬†to be even more special because they are extremely unusual and unique.
