Halloween Pt. 1 - Medusa

Halloween costume number one. 
I had so much fun with this one!! I can't even remember how I decided to be Medusa but I think it's one of my favorites. I came up with the entire dress (this includes making up a pattern, sewing, and fitting) in about 4 hours the day I was supposed to wear it so even though a few things aren't perfectly done I'm definitely proud! I got the incredibly real looking giant boa at a party store and the snakes in my hair were a last minute (but entirely essential to the costume) purchase which I spray painted gold. I'm so happy the hair worked out- I teased my hair into faux-dreads and pinned it up which actually held the snakes really well. Accessories are a few left over fabric scraps, rarely-worn Isaac Mizrahi for Target snake heels, vintage sequin belt, and a pound of gold eyeshadow.
Ps- for anyone that doesn't know much about Greek mythology, read here about the legend of Medusa.
