Megara, the heroine with an attitude and the love interest of Hercules, had rough times dealing with the evil God of the underworld Hades. Through it all, in her flowing Greek Chilton with its graceful and uncomplicated shapes, she always looked marvellous. With a little material, some trim and a few pins you can make a great looking Megara costume.
A Chilton is a simple garment worn by the Ancient Greeks and made by wrapping a piece of material around the body and pinning it over one or both shoulders. To make a Megara purple costume, you need a long piece of light lavender material. Measure from elbow to elbow. Cut your material twice that width. Measure from your shoulder to the top of your foot. This is your length. Wrap cloth under your arms from left to right and pin front to back over each shoulder with decorative pins. Belt with a darker purple sash and pin at the hip with another gold pin. Tie another purple sash just below the bust line. Wear gold sandals and tie hair loosely with an orange ribbon.
To make Megara's white costume, start with another simple Chilton. Trim with a gold Greek key pattern near the hemline and just under the bust line. Add a gauzy white cape by pinning a half circle of thin material to the shoulders. Wear hair in ponytail held with a gold band.
Another of Megara's costumes is a brown Chilton with a white and gold toga. Pin the Chilton higher at the neck and pin again down the arms to make short sleeves. Trim the toga in a gold Greek key pattern. Wrap toga under one arm and pin at opposite shoulder. Wear a tiara with this costume.
