Cool Homemade Medusa Costume

Halloween is my FAVOURITE holiday!! I like to try being something scary or recognizable. Last year (2009) I decided to create a homemade Medusa costume. I started with about 30 rubber snakes that I purchased at Zellers. Then I went and found a gold snake arm band and necklace, some gold gladiator type gold sandals on sale at Wal-Mart and some bobby pins.

I had pretty much everything I needed except for the dress. So I was lucky when one of my friends said she had an old witches costume that I could have. I took it and cut the neckline and cut the sleeves open so that it resembled a goddesses dress I had seen. I then went to Canadian Tire and bought some rope which I spray painted gold for around my waist. I added a homemade crinoline under the dress to add a bit of length.

I am very, very lucky to have a makeup artist/hair stylist for a best friend and she was kind enough to do my hair for me. She started by making little twists in my hair that went in every direction. Then she started pinning the snakes in. It was a long process but the finished product looked amazing! I got many compliments on my homemade Medusa costume and had a blast!! :)
