It's Medusa...with a twist.
The costume consists of three components: the dress, the headpiece, and the accessories.
1. the dress -
* get or make a pink goddess dress
2. the headpiece -
* get lots of toy rubber snakes ranging from 4" to 8" long
* get 3-4 different shades of pink and paint each snake
* paint designs on snakes in opposing colors, add gold glitter
* glue snakes onto gold leaf headpiece
* have them coming out at different angles, all around the head
* glue extra snakes to clips and bobby pins
3. the accessories -
* get a gold snake to wrap around arm
* add snake rings
* glue pink snakes to earring backs
* get sparkles and pink rhinestones for face
I used 60 curlers the night before to get crazy curls. I wore gold wedges that have a snake wrapping around the front.
Pink Medusa was a hit!
