So after years of wanting to dress as medusa at hallowe'en i finally did it!

Used an old bridesmaid dress as my base, cut a slit in the skirt and covered it with green voile... the skirt part has lots of strips twisted and sewn in different bits to the skirt, to try to represent snakes.. the top has green voile sewn onto it and gathered at the front.

Also made my boyfriend's cloak he is wearing.. using an old black sheet.

Oh excuse the face in the first picture that's meant to be my turn you to stone stare!  Cheesy



Used a long black curly wig i had and pined it up, painted some cheap rubber snakes and pined them into the wig.

Then decided i wanted to give myself scaly skin.. so painted it green (with the most rubbish face paint ever, which was sticky and gloopy  Roll Eyes), put net from a bag of oranges over the top, put grey face paint ontop and peeled the net away.. you can see the scales a bit, but was better in real life. If i was doing it again though i'd buy snazaroo face paint, it is just so much more superior!

I loved it! think my favourite finished bit was the face paint though!  Grin

Wow. Great job. I would have never though of using the netting from a bag of oranges to make scaly skin. That's so ingenious. Cheesy
