The Elope Metallic Medusa Hat. One size fits most with inner adjustable band.
Medusa, the demigodess with hair of snakes, who, if you looked upon her would turn you to stone, was one of the three Gorgons of Greek Mythology. Once she was a beautiful maiden whose main glory was her hair, but she made the mistake of choosing to compete in beauty with the Goddess Athena who changed those glorious ringlets of hair into hideous hissing serpents and her face into one of so frightful an appearance that one glance into it would be ones last glance into anything.
Polydectes, King of Seriphus, sent the hero Perseus to slay Medusa in hope of destroying him. Athena and Hermes aided Perseus with winged sandals, Hades cap of invincibility, and a mirror in the form of a shield so he wouldn't be turned to stone by looking directly upon her horrible countenance.
On the severing of Medusa's head while Perseus gazed indirectly upon her with the mirrored shield, Pegasus the winged horse was born from her neck along with Chrysoar, later known as the Giant with the Golden Sword.
Perseus used Medusa's head as a weapon to turn his adversaries to stone. Medusa is known as the most fearsome looking woman of all time.
