Halloween: FRIDA KAHLO

A few years ago I was Frida Kahlo for Hallowe'en.  It was the easiest home-made costume for me to pull off, I loved doing it.  So much so, I did it again the following year for a work Hallowe'en party. Here's what you need:

  • Dark hair or wig with hair that is already pulled up and away from the face.
  • Flowers - I like red Carnations
  • Hairpins - bobby pins
  • Dangly earrings
  • Spanish looking attire - ie. a full length skirt in a bright colour or ruffled, tiered skirt
  • frilly top or bright spanish-looking dress/shirt
  • a shawl
  • red lipstick + blush
  • mascara

Simply part your hair down the middle, into two sections, and french-braid your hair starting from the bottom of your scalp (from you neck) up to the top of your head so that you can pile your hair up at the top of your head.  Tie the braids and pin the end of the braids at the top of your head. Hide the pins by pinning flowers (carnations) at the top of your head.  Apply the mascara in a thin layer between your brows making it look like a uni-brow.  You can also fill the rest of your brows with the mascara to add to the thickness.  Put on some blush, lipstick, wear your earrings and outfit, wrap yourself in the shawl and you're done!

What are you doing for Hallowe'en? Are you dressing up?  If so, what as?
