I’ve spotted a few different takes on Medusa from cosplayers, but Duchess Silk’s spin on the mythical figure jumped out at me. She came up with the look a couple of years ago for a photo shoot. Instead of leaving the snakes on Medusa’s head, she brought the reptilian pattern to her skin. The effect is striking and possibly makes the character more mesmerizing – especially considering the doll heads in the hair. She said:
It was time consuming and a great deal of hard work to make this costume come together. I made the face pieces by pinching tiny bits of plasticine to plastic card, then using that to make a plaster mold for latex, which I poured and dried in preparation for the shoot. It took several days to do that, and my flatmates were very tolerant of my strange craft corner in the living room.
