How to dress as Medusa for Halloween
Start putting together your homemade Medusa costume with black clothes and heels from your own wardrobe. We went for black jeans and a top but you could switch this for a dress – see what you’ve got in your wardrobe and use whatever work’s best!
Next, do your make-up and make it a bit more glamorous than usual with metallic green eye shadow and dark lipstick.
Then add some accessories! Start with a vibrant green wig and if you’ve got thick hair, put a wig cap on first to keep your hair in place (trust us, this will make it much easier to put the wig on). Last but not least, add the finishing touches with a snake armband and a Medusa headband like this (it might help to secure this in place with a couple of hair clips).
And that’s it – your ready to hit the town as the most mesmerising figure in Greek mythology!
