Don't look her directly in the eyes or you may end up being one of the victims hanging from her necklace!At Sara's school, rather than have a Halloween Party, they have a history fair. Each grade is assigned the era that they are studying in history that year. Boring. Sorry, but come on Halloween is all about fun and scary - not over the top gore, but fun scary. Last year when she was a civil war girl, I wanted her to be a dead civil war girl - the teacher wouldn't go for it.
This year, Sara's class was assigned Greek History. Medussa was the obvious answer :) What girl wouldn't want a head full of snakes! A few crochet snake hair extensions, some spray painted Army men and her thick teased hair did the trick. The snakes had button eyes and thread tongues. The best part - she loved it. She was dressed in normal clothes so she wasn't nervous or uncomfortable.
