I’ve always been in love with Greek mythology. Ever since I was a child, I loved reading about myths and legends. I would watch the movie Hercules over and over, and I owned a copy of Edith Hamilton’s book on Greek mythology. I guess it wouldn’t come as a shock too if I say that I absolutely love the Percy Jackson series.
So imagine my delight when When In Manila sent me these cool Greek mythology-inspired shirts! Discovering Calypso’s Demi Shirt collection was something I didn’t know I needed in my life.
Calypso PH: Child of Poseidon
Obviously, being a big fan of Percy, I went with the Poseidon shirt. I think it’s the big fangirl in me that made me reach for this shirt in particular.
I am absolutely delighted with my Child of Poseidon shirt. Percy better make room for me in the Poseidon cabin cause I’m moving in! I think this is quite a stylish and modern way to show off how much of a Geek mythology fan I am while wearing a bomb outfit.
Calypso PH: Child of Hades
I like the sleek design; the shirts are simple but pair well with a whole myriad of outfit combinations. Any fan of Greek mythology and Percy Jackson would love to have something like this in their closet. Here is Hannah happily showing off her Child of Hades shirt with our adorable Cerberus here in the photo above.
Calypso PH: Child of Zeus
Even though technically speaking the three of us probably shouldn’t get along well considering how Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades didn’t really see eye-to-eye, Erin who chose the Child of Zeus shirt, helped us realize it’s not so much the shirts we chose but how we wore them.
Our Cerberus here may not have three heads, but she loves belly rubs and was delighted with how much attention she got from the Children of Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades. (Zoe the beagle looked just as happy, too!)
If you’re interested in a Demi shirt, Calypso currently has Zeus, Apollo, Hades, Athena, and Apollo available. Check the shirts out at https://calypsoph.com/collections/demi-shirt-collection .
