I love making Halloween costumes for my daughter and this past year she wanted to be something fun and not kiddie. So I looked at some ideas and suggested Medusa. I showed her some ideas and when I said we can even spray your hair green, she was all for it.
I started with a large green tablecloth from a thrift store for the dress. It had a awesome texture to it that almost looked like snake skin. I made a toga-like dress that was easy to move in and was large enough to add warmer clothes on underneath. (Just in case- we live in the Midwest and October weather is crazy.)
For her headpiece I bought a large lot of fake rubber snakes from amazon. I wired them to a headband.
Then I added two rubber snakes found at the $tree and hung them around her neck.
We teased and sprayed her hair green and added a gold sash around her waist to finish it off.
She loved it!
