Underworld by chiaroscuro8 Underworld by chiaroscuro8
Kind of a continuation of my previous collection 'Olympus'....
So continuing with the Greek/Roman mythology, here's 2 gods from the underworld; Hades and Persephone.
So, from left to right;
Hades: God/Ruler of the underworld. His brothers Zeus and Poseidon got the Sky and the Sea and unluckily enough, he ended up with the Underworld, the place where the deceased end up.
Persephone: Goddess of Spring, married to Hades, spends half the year in the Underworld and the other half in Olympus.

I can't help thinking of the story of Persephone...she got kidnapped by Hades because he was lonely. :D
It worked out.
The Greeks/Romans weren't always the best at teaching the right way to pick up girls. XD
Aaaaand both dresses are amazing!

:iconnotbadplz: This is true.
Now that I think about it, Hera was Zeus' sister, Athena was born of Zeus and...his mom? Hera had Hephaestus all by herself, Venus and Mars were related (were they?), Uranus spawned the titans and young gods with Gaia who was his mom...okay, everything is making sense now. :omg:

For some reason I always imagine Persephone as a darker skinned girl, that really pretty golden brown, like Rihanna. I don't know why. Anyway I'm a big fan of these designs, beautiful! And a huge fan of the story of Hades and Persephone as well. :)

I really like the Persephone dress. And it's amazing how Persephone is so contradictory to Hades and still looks good.

I'm not sure I would have worded it that "unluckily" he ended up with the Underworld, because Disney made people think that Hades was a bad guy, but he actually was the opposite. He liked his job.

Haha I guess. I dunno, Disney made hades have blue hair which does seem quite stupid.
