I wanted to dress up as Frida Kahlo last year, but it didn't happen...
so this year I went out of my way to make sure it happened. I even featured a blog post last year with last minute Halloween costume ideas here and included Frida on my list.
For the costume I wore a maxi skirt that I've had in my closet for years, paired with a Spanish looking top and a floral print scarf. None of these items really go together, but the combination gives it the appropriate Mexican flair.
For my hair, I did a french braid that started at the nape of my neck and worked my way around the crown of my head and pinned the tale of the braid into my hair. I purchased two stems of pink silk flowers from Michaels Arts & Crafts and cut the longer stems off, leaving only about 2 inches per rose. Then I arranged them through the braid at the top of my head.
I finished off the costume with dramatic silver earrings and a few bracelets, plus her signature red lips and eyebrows. I probably could have made my eyebrows closer together creating a true unibrow, but overall I'm pretty happy with the results.
What is your Halloween costume this year?
