Zeus thinks he's all that, but what's he got, really?!
Big deal! Sure, he gets to wreak a little havoc by making the skies open up, but he also has to deal with all the whiny mortals and their mundane problems.
Plus, he's got Prometheus running around and stealing fire well before he was ready to share with anyone. What's up with that?
! Seriously -- being the supreme ruler of Olympia is not all that it's cracked up to be.
Now, Poseidon ..
. Poseidon drew a great lot!
Not only does he have a way better name, but he gets to rule the seas and carry a trident. None of those sea creatures every complain about anything.
You never hear of a squid going on and on about the color of his ink. Plus, there's the whole mermaid thing.
Mermaids are legendary hotties with a naughty streak. Half female, half fish, and all sorts of fun.
If you are in the mood to hang with Poseidon and lure a few ships to their doom, try this dress on for size. The glittery, organza skirt has a scale pattern that is sure to attract boatloads of unsuspecting sailors while the sheer, nude top features a sequined pink bra perfect for when you get tired of swimming around in the ocean and want to sun to yourself on a rock.
Every once in a while we find ourselves wishing we had Alice's "Drink Me" potion so we could fit into different scenarios that we dont naturally feel comfortable in. If you try hard enough you can almost pretend that you fit.
Like the time you joined that Karaoke competition. An hour after you put in your song you had almost convinced yourself that you had the range of Alicia Keys and while you didn't get an instant invitation to sign on to a record deal, you sure went up there with confidence.
Isn't that like a little potion in itself? We wouldn't drink this bottle of potion as it consists mostly of glitter, but you can wear it to remind yourself that if you can shrink down to ten inches tall or grow bigger than a house--but it depends on your own mind.
Wear it as a little bit of sparkle for your Alice costume or with a t-shirt and jeans. After all, there's nothing like a little bottled courage.

It's time to get leggy with it, the Halloween Costumes way!
We've always wanted to take a vacation to lost land of Atlantis, but it turns out that submarine tickets down to the depths of the underwater world are just way too expensive! Also, no one seems to know where it is or even if it really exists, which also creates some logistical difficulties when it comes to aptly using our two weeks of vacation time.
So instead, we simply decided to make dry land look a lot more like under the sea! This Child Bubbly Mermaid Costume was our answer!
Your girl gets to look like a plucky undersea princess without having to grow a pesky set of gills and fins, and we get to pretend that gadget-collecting and catchy-song-singing mermaids are now part of our world! Made from 100% polyester stretch knit fabric (unlike a real mermaid's tail) this costume is a breeze to pull on and take off!
The pullover top has a ruffled boat neckline and three-quarter length sleeves, keeping your little swimmer warm even on dry land. The skirt is secured with a back zipper and is fitted over hips and thighs, and then it gathers into a circle from the knees down.
Completing the costume is the ultimate deep-sea diving accessory, a 3" diameter starfish mounted on a metal alligator clip! Just add a red wig, a seashell purse, and a seaweed boa, and this adorable daughter of Triton will be ready to party under the sea!
The Office Cat Our office cat, Chuck, is a great pet but it's really difficult trying to teach him tricks. Actually, it's nearly impossible.
If we command him to "sit" or "lay down" he either a) gives us a blank stare b) continues licking his paws or c) dismisses us completely by walking away. We've come to the realization that Chuck will (probably) never be able to carry out our commands, so as a team we've decided to focus our energy elsewhere.
Now, we are devising a plan to transform Chuck from a regular office cat into Cheshire Cat's doppelganger. Instead of teaching Chuck to sit, we are going to teach him to smile.
Owning a smiling cat would win us tons of internet points. To achieve Cheshire Cat's infamous stripes, we'll purchase pink and purple dye that's specially formulated for fur.
We have a feeling that Chuck won't like that very much. In fact, we don't think he will like any of this.
at all. He may even try scratching our eyes out again and that's never fun.
Design & Details On second thought, we're not going to attempt turning our office cat into the Cheshire cat. We'll just transform ourselves into Wonderland's disappearing feline by a costume of course.
If you're little girl has been inspired to do the same, then our exclusive Cheshire Cat girl's costume is perfect for her. It's a hooded dress with an attached tail and a furry pair of mitts.
Not only will your little girl love this costume, but your pet cat will love it too, (especially if your daughter is like us and tries to teach him to do tricks all the time!)
A Curious Thing "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin, but a grin without a cat!
It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!" The Cheshire cat kept Alice guessing when helping her find her way through Wonderland, mostly when the trickster vanished leaving its only famous grin behind.
Do you have a special cat in your life? Anyone who's lived with a feline knows that the little beasties do some strange things.
Like the time your family calico was staring at a corner of the living room wall. Was there something there?
No? Was it a moving shadow?
Nope. Fluffy is just strange.
When they're dipping their paws in our drinks or getting way too close to their face for no apparent reason we get why Lewis Carrol's wise Wonderland guide would be a cat. Appearing and disappearing whenever the Cheshire cat sees fit, sound like anyone you know?
So if you're ready to channel your inner Cheshire cat then there are a few things to work on. First, get your best grin ready.
Second, work on saying something wise while disappearing out of a room, the Cheshire cat is great at leaving that audience wanting more. Third, get your awesome, stripy cat costume ready!
The costume features a three-quarter sleeve skater dress with a furry hood and ears, it's perfected with a pink tail. The fluffy tail matches the purple and pink paw gloves.
In this bright and cheerful costume, you'll be ready to sidle up and lay down some knowledge on any Wonderland Wanderers.
