    like a mummy

    Can one say
    a. I stared at her, with bandage wrapped around her head like a mummy.
    b. I stared at her, complete with bandage wrapped around her head like a mummy.

    ?

    Are the sentences grammatical? Is it grammatically clear what word 'like a mummy' modifies?

    Many thanks.

    Re: like a mummy

    Would something like this work?
    Her head was so wrapped in bandages that she looked like a mummy and I couldn't help but stare.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
