Marvel's Medusa of the Inhumans, then Frightful Four, then later the Fantastic Four. Project took forever, came out... OK. Had no idea how I was going to proceed. Started with the Toy Biz figure, but she has pipestem arms and a dull face. Swapped in a movie Jean Grey and Storm with repositioned limbs. Went with the original Kirby design with light magenta-dark magenta because she's here in the Frightful Four. Her costume bands are bread ties. Gouged holes in the back and head and inserted coat hanger wire bound with epoxy. Thickened it with Concrete Patch (Home Depot) because it laid on smooth like hair. Tt gave her a spidery effect. So I twisted plastic card over a candle and glued it between the hair extensions, then trimmed the ends like hair. Coated all with many layers of Patch. (She's wicked heavy.) Painted in orange, various tones, then tried a brown wash that stuck, so left it as a topcoat. Results are - there. The idea is she'll be strangling Invisible Woman, and has climbed the side of a building for height-scary. The building is a Ghostbusters HQ wall, part of a Marvel street diorama to come. My object is to get as many figures as possible up in the air so the street isn't jammed. Glad this is done. Wife says she looks like a frilled lizard. Oh, well.

I love your description of Medusa strangling Susan Storm, aka the Invisible Woman or the Invisible Girl back in the Silver Age! Your synopsis of Medusa reminds me of their battles back in the 1960's, when Medusa was a member of the Frightful Four and when she was more than a match for the Invisible Girl!

That's pretty crazy. I'm not sure it looks like hair, but how do I know what hair looks like when you can control each strand? I'm sure she could make it look like that if she wanted to look especially fearsome - like a frilled lizard. It's inventive and unique and I like it.
