Halloween How-To: Medusa

Happy Halloween, everybody! To get all of the Sugar girls excited for the big day, GiggleSugar had us all monster-fied by Len Peralta of Monster By Mail. (Check out the spooky gallery.) Well, leave it to me to go for a wild hairdo, right? I decided to be Medusa, known for her head of snakes. To find out how to get this gorgeous gorgon look,

Eyes: Affix a pair of false eyelashes to the lashline, then cover with black liquid eyeliner.

Lips: Go for a barely-there gloss. Be sure that your fangs are nice and pearly-white!

Skin: I cannot over-stress the importance of finding a good foundation for this look. Most foundations have pink or yellow undertones, which are completely unflattering on Medusa skin. Be sure to find a foundation with green or teal undertones, both of which bring out the sickly, evil glow from within. (I recommend Behind The Mask foundation by Mythic Monster, Inc.)

Hair: Without proper attention and feeding, snakes are prone to doing all sorts of unpleasant things to the head—and they'll treat people with a stony disposition if they're not happy. Treat them right, and they'll give you a version of Botox by injecting their paralyzing venom into your most stubborn wrinkles.

I think this may have to be my costume for next year. If I start stitching the snakes now, I might be ready in time!

I don't think she wore false eyelashes (because she was ten!), but my sister did go as Medusa one year for Halloween. She wore a plain green dress with a rope belt, like a long tunic of sorts, and my mom sewed rubber snakes to a black cloth bathing cap for my sister to wear on her head. She looked great!
