Medusa Costume

Here are the first images of the whole thing together with make-up and jewellery. I decided I should wear fangs because I read that Gorgons were fierce beings, often depicted with fangs.

I decided to discard the outer layer of fabric, because it made me look like the Statue of Liberty!
Here's a close-up of the face. I was having trouble with the fangs. The right one just doesn't want to stay put. I may have to use Denture Adhesive.

Here's a photo without the fangs. This loses the whole "Medusa" effect. One good idea I borrowed from another costumer online was to draw some scales on my face. That helps with the snake connection.

If only we had a good Party to go to!! We just found out that our friend Drazen will be vacationing in Quebec, that weekend.. So, we may have to mothball our costumes, for another Season..
I have to say that Suzanne really does look fantastic in these pics, which I snapped..
When I opened out Front Door, I barely recognized her actually. But YES, the mix between alluring & dangerous was certainly palpable!! heh

Well, I'm thankful for the blog world or else NO one would end up seeing my creations.
Thanks for the kind comments!
