This is the early draft of my Medusa make up. It will probably change some by Halloween as I keep thinking of different ways to do things. I originally wanted bigger snakes, but these smaller ones are much easier to attach to hair or wig without being too heavy. I really wish I had some snake eyes contacts. I need a Medusa pattern to go with my costume.
"Who is this irresistible creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?"(Formerly known as RavensDestiny)
That looks really good! I love the makeup! And oooh, I never thought of snake eye contacts, but you're right it would be a must and really sell the package. Did you just hot glue the snakes in the wig?
And so as to not totally derail the thread, this would be aperfect costume/pumpkin duo.
"Obi-wan never told you what happened to your pumpkins."
"He told me enough, he told me *you* carved them!!"
You are going to make a really bad ass Medusa! I can't wait to see the final pic for Halloween! Do you have a prescription for snake eye contacts? You definetly should because it would make the overall look complete! As for clothing, you can probably find a greek inspired dress in a dark color or maybe go to your local fabric store and look for some kind of patterned cloth that simulates Medusa's scaley and slithery body? Will you also have a bow and arrow so you can stop your victims at their tracks and turn them into stone?!!
