We only have few days before the Halloween season. You better think of a dashing outfit now that would make people want to be YOU in this event. One of the hardest characters or costume to dress this Halloween is the serpent-lady Medusa but here are some ways on how to make your own eye catching Medusa costume for this holiday.
2. Serpent Hair
5. Other Accessories
There is no need to buy face paint for your make-up. Your usual make-up kit would do as long as you have those green, gray and black colors. It would take time for you to master the Medusa look but practice will always make it perfect.
This is the most important part of the character. You could actually don any gown as long as your hair has snakes. It is would be hard to look for the hissing snake headdress even in Halloween costume stores. Therefore, the best medusa hair is the home made stuff. You could create a hair out of paper mache. Be patient and creative. Creating a Medusa Headdress will just take a few research and practice.
This is actually the easiest part of the whole ensemble. You could wear whatever outfit you like. There is no such thing as “I don’t have a Medusa dress”. You could be a Greek Medusa or a modern Medusa. You could wear tight fitting black dress or tights and look like the bad character in those cartoon hero movies.
You could actually just match any shoes with this costume as long as they match the dress. The safest footwear though is the gladiator sandals that are currently in style. You will just have to be careful on the color combination with black as the safest-of course.
Just be imaginative and wear those jewelries that you already have with you. There is no need to buy new set of bangles or earrings just to look like a serpent. Like I have mentioned before, it is in the hair. Accessories are just to make it more eye-catching. Even green and black ribbons will do. Wrap them around your wrist or as extensions of your gladiators. Just be creative, anyway it is Halloween.
