Here's the finished Medusa costume!
I used black stockinet for the jumpsuit, and white for the eyes on the hood. The hood itself is some other fabric, like, um... Jumper fabric? xD I have a zipper under my left armpit, and I simply worm my way into the costume. I putted some elastic rubber-band at the end of the pants to get a poofier look.
Hm. I made the tail too long, but I kinda like it so far... Uncept that it keeps going in between my legs all the time Dx (good thing it didn't at my walk-on >__>) for the triangle at the end, I actually sewn a part of a plastic ice-cream box in, it keeps the form of it.
Is a Tina 950, and my first styling job ever, but I may re-style the wig if I wear it again... And I had a little problem with the twist. You see, because of the fact that I worm my way in and out of the costume, it wouldn't be very smart to keep the wig on when going to the bathroom. BUT, as i wanted to make the twist a little more close to the chin then it actually is, I couldn't remove it without destroying the wig. So, I had to make the twist all over again every time I had to do my business, an therefore just used two scrunchies, so it would be easy to remove. Though, I'm sure it exists better solutions than this one, but I had like five minutes to come up with something >__> Spikes are done with Got 2 Be glued and hairspray of the same.
Were made at the con, as a result of time loss. I actually used a water-resistant marker, but the color just vanished anyway TwT and, the snakeheads at the top... I didn't have time to print a reference picture and take along with me, so... I kinda improvised...
For these, I thank ayesaid here at cosplay.com. I used some hollow cables, putted wires in them, bended them, and sprayed them silver. I didn't have time to plug the endings, though...
I made the same thing at my toe nails, uncept that i didn't use fake nails.
We didn't have time for a photoshot though, but it was bad weather anyway, so we just took some pics in the con :3
