Goes great with a Fur Bikini.

Needs a Better Title?

Basically wearing a snake (real or fake) as though it's a fashion accessory. As shown in the pic, this can often be seen with a Jungle Princess, The Chief's Daughter, or a Nubile Savage.

A Femme Fatale or Dragon Lady would use a poisonous one, to show she has some connection with these creatures.

Rock singers might also wear one, just to look Badass.

In Real Life, it's actually a practical way to carry some snakes (as long as you do it right). In fiction, it's meant to give a "wild and untamed" look to the wearer.

Compare Right-Hand Cat.

Rolling Examples:

  • Margaret from One Piece, shown in the picture.
    • Her boss, Boa Hancock, is also a major offender.
  • In the first Wayne's World, Cassandra was shooting a music video, while wearing a fake snake.
  • Salma Hayek in From Dusk Till Dawn.
  • Sour Grapes from Strawberry Shortcake wears her pet snake Dregs in this manner.
  • A few items on Gaia Online are snakes that you can wear in this way, including a white one called David Boa.
  • Poison Ivy does this in Batman & Robin when she "returns to life" at the start of the movie.
  • Zhora from Blade Runner.
  • Marvel Universe villainess Princess Python usually has a snake draped around her shoulders.
  • Britney Spears used one during some MTV event.
  • Patricia Paiwonski in Robert A. Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land.
  • Barbara Carrera famously posed nude with a snake covering her naughty bits. Here's an actually safe for work version.
  • Many a fine promo by Jake "the Snake" Roberts features him with Damian or Lucifer draped around his neck.
