Two days ago, I had no plans to do anything for Halloween. Now? I'm apparently planning a volunteers & friends party and IOW. Whoo?

Of course, this means I need a Halloween costume. Luckily, I rediscovered Take Back Halloween a few days ago, so it didn't take long for me to have an idea: MEDUSA



Things I will need:
- hair scarf
- rubber snakes
- bed sheet for chiton
- scarf/fabric for himation
- arm band
- bangles?
- earrings?
- sandles

Some inspiration:

For hair, I really like Frida Kahlo's braids and it should be fairly easy to add the rubber snakes...




I really like the style of chiton depicted here *and* she gives a bit of a tutorial on how to make it.


How to make a chiton out of a sheet (I think "real" chitons are only different in that they're sewn up partway on each side)



I'll probably also do a himation, which is the wrap/shall pictured. It would be cool to make this out of fancier fabric...


Kind of like this?



The belt on this depiction of Medusa is really cool, but it seems like it would be hard to make and not go well with my tummy. Poop.



I don't know what colors to do for my outfit, though. Green/blue? Purple?
