This costume is perfect except for the most important part. The headpiece that came with it looks completely different than the picture. The picture shows cobras/snakes, some with their mouths open with the tongues sticking out and some without. The snakes color is totally different as well, the picture shows them as being more silver/gray but what I got was army green with gold accents. The gold leaves in the picture are also much bigger than what I got. The actual leaves are puny and wrinkled and nothing like the picture. The snakes on the one I got fall down and even though I used paper towels to "stuff" them like other reviewers had done to make them stand up, it still does not look right. My husband said I looked more like the Statue of Liberty than Medusa. I have given up on making it look better and have started trying to make my own from scratch. The dress part is awesome and a perfect fit, but it does not come with the snake staff. I did however Google "snake staff" and found one that I ordered to go with it. Could not find one similar at all to the one in the picture, but it will work. I have included two pictures, one up close of what I should have gotten, and one of what actually came.
