I wasn't gonna post, but what the heck!This year was medusa!



I made the hair from a long dread wig. I wired each dread with coat hanger...(process shot)

and then covered each one with a tube of fabric. They flopped all over the place but it was a good effect. I tied them together in some places so they would stand up, and then I wove a few rubber snakes in to spice it up!


I reused a toga I had thrown together for a murder mystery party a few months back. its just a big sheet of material with a  hole in the middle that's tied and pinned in just the right spots.


Here are some more action shots!
mmmmm...babies....


SCARY!


I am WORKIN that scary face!! Tongue

I LOVE your costume! The headpiece looks great. I also adore the last pic in the series. Very dramatic.

Thank you for the insane amount of snakes.  Where would Medusa be without her snakes?  I especially love the last two photos.

nice job. I've thought about doing medusa before but never could really figure out the snakes. Kudos for figuring that out. Cheesy
The toga looks awsome too.

duct tape is like the force. There's a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.
