Clash of the Legal Titans

In a way, this one works for me, too. Helen is Medusa, from the great Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion animated movie, Clash of the Titans. (See the relevant clip here. Pure awesomeness.) A full-size replica of that serpentine archer monster is shown here, from a recent ComicCon. (Ignore the wacky guys in the foreground. I don't know them.) The original movie model is here. A model kit of this figure was released by Geometric.

A lot of data, yeah, but this picture is sort of a sci-fi/horror/fantasy icon nowadays. Helen would have trouble dressing up like this, but it would be so cool if she did.

Wasky guys? Sounds scary. Glad you don't know them.

Uh... oh. Uh, I have no idea what you are talking about. Everything looks fine to me.
