I think if you adapt it and keep the basic feel of the original, it should be fine.
I have decided to retro fit my version of Medusa with the inspired suggestion by Boone. So that the final position will be an updated version of the character, but will be recognizable.
*(GOZER)-During the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex Supplicants, it chose the form of a giant SLOAR...

I think you'll have fun with this one!

I think the biggest challenge will be joining up each neck to the main body. I certainly wouldn't do it joining each head to each neck - just copy a main times? I think that's how many they had on the puppet in the film...

It cracks me up on the Harryhausen Chronicles where Leonard Nimoy says "Todd Armstrong had the easy job; he only had to slay the beast! But Ray had to animate seven heads...".
