"When I was a child, my mother called me Medusa because of my wild, thick, crazy hair. I've always been intrigued by the snake woman. The costume was more difficult to put together than I thought. I worked on it the whole year because I wanted to do her justice. Rubber snakes where the hardest to find and much more money than I thought. I collected the snakes from different places; there really is not a big demand for rubber snakes. I wanted more snakes for the costume, but Springfield was all bought out. My boyfriend, who is Perseus, helped paint my body to look like a snake. We both worked very hard, and long hours, trying to perfect the costume. Happy Halloween!"

Lydia and Beetlejuice

"Lydia's dress started as a used red waist slip and red T-shirt. Much tulle and taffeta were built around it to create Lydia's iconic red wedding dress in Beetlejuice. A handmade veil put it all together. The undead Beetlejuice himself started out as a thrift store black suit. All stripes were taped off and hand painted with textile paint. His wig started as a wig cap; acrylic yarn was cut in small strips, threads were pulled out by hand to expose the fluffy part of the yarn. Each hair plug was individually glued on. This took two weeks. The wig was brushed out, hair sprayed, and dirtied with paint and moss. I also personally applied Beetlejuice's makeup. Both outfits are 85 percent upcycled, and it took 1 month to create both outfits."
