Evil Enchantress Medusa Costume Gown
with snake headpiece, veil, armbands, attached belt
The Story of Medusa
Long long time ago as the legend goes there was a beautiful maiden by the name of Medusa who lived in Athens, Greece. Medusa was one of the most beautiful maidens in Greece but she was very vain. Everyday she boasted about her beauty to others. One day she went to the Parthenon, the biggest temple in Greece and encountered the Goddess of beauty and wisdom, Athena. Medusa commented on the statues displayed saying that she should have been one of them and commented that as she (Medusa) was more beautiful than Athena herself, a grander temple should be built in her own likeness.
The angry goddess Athena cursed her of being so vain and self-centred that she cursed that her beauty would be gone forever turning Medusa into a monster. Her hair turned into hissing snakes and body into a slithering snake. Further she said anyone who looked into Medusa’s eyes would turn into a stone! She was sent to live with the blind monsters, the Gorgon sisters at the ends of the earth so no one would see them and be turned into stones by accident.
