Every year my daughter comes up with some creative idea for a costume.  Her idea to be Medusa has been my favorite!  It was so cheap and easy, and she got so many compliments!

For the dress, I just wrapped a plain white sheet around her.  We embellished with   some cheap gold ribbon and flowers from the Christmas section at Walmart.  After  I braided her hair, we wove some plastic toy snakes, that I found in the party supply section at Walmart, through her hair.  Super easy!  The best part is, this costume cost under $5!!!
