Hebe-Goddess of Youth Picture

Well, I decided to make a few outfits for one of my favorite lesser known goddesses, Hebe, goddess of youth. Seriously, I wish this goddess was more known. She's a daughter of Zeus and Hera and sister to Ares, god of war, and Hephaestus, god of the forge. You can't tell me she lived a boring life with a family like that. Oh, and she married Heracles after he was made immortal and allowed to live on Olmpus. How is this girl not mentioned more often? Anyway, she's one of my favorites and I will try to finish my story for her, once I have a better idea of where I want it to go. Currently I'm working on a few main projects.
I always imagine Hebe as looking very childlike, even if her age does not at all match up to it. For example, at one point in my story (and for a majority of it) she is thirty years old, but doesn't look a day over thirteen, much to her annoyance. I made her a mix of her mother and father's looks, her father's hair and more stubborn features in addition to her mother's eyes and more feminine attributes. She is often envious of her elegant, stately mother, who is every inch a woman while she is only a girl, but Hebe does have her own rather disarming charms, even if she doesn't know she has them. I always picture her in lighter, pastel colors, more to show the innocence of youth I guess, therefore I mostly put her in light blues, pinks, and white. She also has a youthful blush to her face. While not shy, she isn't exactly social either. She's used to being alone and talking to herself while she works. She has a very close relationship with her brothers and mother, but feels as though she does not matter in her father's eyes. Sadly, he has ceased to matter to her as she starts to gain a following amongst mortals and become her own person and grows up.
As for her and her husband, Heracles...let's just say that takes some getting used to. But once she starts to warm up to him, she realizes that while he can be a bit full of himself at times and quick-tempered, he isn't a horrible person. Though he does have to learn that Hebe's not going to take any of his crap and that she's not as quiet and submissive as she looks.
