Make Your Own Medusa Costume
Looking for a costume that's a head turner, but don't have a lot of time or money to spend on it? You'll love this idea!
This is one of my quick "go to" costumes. I've worn it a few times and it always attracts a lot of attention. It's kind of hard not to stare at the lady with snakes on her head!
To make the head piece, you'll need:
a sturdy headband
several large rubber snakes
small rubber snakes
(I found all the items at the Dollar Tree except for the large snakes, which I found in the toy section at Dollar General.)
Place one snake on the headband and bind it on using a chenille stick. Repeat with the other snakes.
Use the chenille sticks to attach the smaller snakes directly to your hair.
To complete the costume, use a white sheet to make a toga. Sometimes I paint my face and hands green for added dramatic effect.
Have fun turning heads! Send me a picture if you decide to be Medusa this year. I'd love to see it!
