How to Make A Homemade Medusa Costume
If you are wanting to save a little money you can always make a homemade Medusa costume for Halloween by following these simple DIY instructions.
To start off, browse through some of the premade Medusa costumes and find one that you fancy. Then all you need to do is try and replicate it. It might all seem a little overwhelming at first if you have never attempted something like this before. But it really is quite simple as long as you have the right accessories and a rough idea of what you are after.
Break it all down:
- Tunic or dress
- Medusa Headpiece
- Medusa Accessories
First of all you need to choose a tunic dress that has really simple lines and styling. The best thing is to choose a neutral color like cream, ivory or white but if you want to be a little different you can always pick another color of your liking.
- Homemade Medusa Costume Tip:
Hunt through your closet and attic for a tunic style dress. If you can’t find anything at home then go to your nearest thrift store and see if what you can come up with so that you can save a little money.
Homemade Medusa Costume Sewing Patterns
If for some reason you didn’t have any luck find a tunic dress tucked away in your closet or after digging through endless racks at your local thrift store, you might want to try sewing your own tunic dress. Here are a few patterns I found. They actually are pretty simple to follow as long as you read the directions.
Next, you’ll want to wrap a gold cording or perhaps a braided rope around your waist, tying it in any fashion you really like. For a traditional Medusa Greek style, tie the braided rope or cord around your tunic or dress by going below your bust, by criss-crossing it in a “X” across your stomach, and around your waist.
- Homemade Medusa Costume Tip: If you are wondering where to find a gold braided rope – go to curtain store or check the drapery section at your local fabric store.
Now For Shoes – Medusa Style or Not!
Your shoes can easily be any form of flat shoes you wish to have, but if you are looking for the traditional footwear worn by women in Greek mythology you should lean on the side of wearing sandals or strappy shoes.
