minoan style

My Minotaur Girl


Ariadne was a mythological cretean princess, daughter of the notorious king Minus.

She was the princess who gave the ball of wool to Theseus can find the way back into the labyrinth after killing the minotaur.

Minoan girls didn’t dress with white peplos so common in the movies, but they wore such elaborate clothing like those layered skirts with tight waist, and often wore her breasts on display highlighted in tight corsets!

If Ariadne had existed, she probably would dress like this.

c. 1400 BC
