There she is: the meDDusa bra for my fifth bra for a cause. As a reminder, my earlier entries are outlined here and last year's entry is here.
The deadline for this surprised me, but I was able to throw it together on Friday and Saturday nights. My dream is to someday make a spectacular ice queen bra, but I really need to plan months in advance for that one.
I found little snakes from that AxMan Surplus store at a rate of $1.50 per dozen. I believe I used ten bags of snakes. This mo fo is heavy! Who would have thunk that almost 120 snakes weighs a ton? I used a strapless bra, but because the snakes weighed so much I had to add some sort of makeshift strap.
Here it is before the strap and not on the mannequin, because it kept sliding down her slippery plastic boobs.
I bedazzled the sides and middle with some plastic green rhinestones. Pretty soon I will only have pink ones left, because I used the blues and the reds for earlier projects.
So this is all boxed up and ready to go. Yay! Hopefully they remember to check their POBox for it. I also hope that the snakes stay glued down. They kept squirming off and I had to reglue at least 20 of them last night.
One last shot:
