This homemade costume for girls entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Megan, the 'Medusa' costume creator:

I made this costume for my 9 year old daughter, Grace who is fascinated by Greek mythology. I started by dyeing her white cleopatra dress from last year gold and brushing it with green metallic paint. I boiled plastic snakes so they would be more pliable and then painted them gold and cut and glued them to 2 headbands. I used a technique for her makeup which involved using fishnet and layering greens and golds to create a scale effect.
She won best costume at her school.

Love this! Could you tell me the dyeing color you used for the gold and the the metallic green paint? Was it fabric or spray...? We love doing our own costumes and she wants Medusa this year.
