I had to take something for a coworker to work today, and it was in a plastic grocery bag. I thought, You know, this would be a lot cooler if I was holding Medusa's head by the snake hair. After some brief searching online, I don't see anything like what I want. All I see are bags that have the image of Medusa on the side, at best. It seems like a truly wasted opportunity not to have her head BE the bag, with snake hair handles. I'm hoping someone may have ideas on how I can get one of these made, potentially with suggestions on materials, if there's anyone you personally know who could pull it off, or perhaps someone could point me in the direction of an online resource that may be able to help me? It might be nice if the person making it could also save the design in case I want another one made in the future, so if they have the capacity for more than one-offs, that would be a major plus.

Thanks for any ideas you may have!

Are you genuinely concerned?

I'm envisioning a large airbrush painted face on the bag topped with rubber snakes from a novelty store. Should be easy enough. You might need to reinforce the bag with a real shopping bag inside to prevent the weight of the snakes from ripping the plastic though.

You will need some serious Emo clothes to complete the look though.

I think Charles wanted an actual, empty, head-shaped container.

We'll all be on the news stating things like "He seemed like such a nice, normal person"..... "He was a quiet, likable forum member".... "He stalked me for years"..... Well, that last one wouldn't be quoted unless a certain female performer became a forum member.... but, still...

You really set people up with that line: "Doesn't he already have one? It's even ugly!"

But yes, you're right, I don't just want an image printed on a bag.

Your idea would probably work, but I was thinking of something a little more involved, actually, even though it's one of those out-of-the-blue ideas. I'm kind of scared how much something as nice as I want would cost, but it would be funny to have.

Do I just need Emo clothes, or do I have to start wearing makeup?

Charles,
It is faux concern, but it is GENUINE faux concern!
Like Mark said about all of us being on the news and all...
I'm concerned we might not have the time for that!
