Feet, what do I need you for when I have wings to fly?
If these famous words of Frida Kahlo's inspire you, then it could be that this is the year to turn yourself into your cultural and style icon! Think about it, Halloween is a time to let your wildest dreams run wild, and you've always daydreamed of embodying Kahlo's feisty spirit, artistic talent, and eye-catching signature look.
Not only will you have the most unique costume at the party, but you'll also feel a swell of pride that puts a pep in your step. After all, it's not every day you get to turn yourself into a legacy! Most painters are not so easily recognized—they rarely grace the pages of our tabloids, magazines, and social media feeds—so it's a rare joy to be among the artistic elite. Enjoy the air of sophistication, free-spiritedness, and fun this fashionable look lends to you!
Design & Details
This Women's Frida Kahlo Costume comes with everything you need to turn yourself into your favorite art icon—except Frida's innate painting talent...and her signature unibrow. But that's nothing a few art classes and some eye pencil can't fix, right? With this culturally-inspired costume, you simply need to perfect your braiding skills and layer on these lovely pieces—the top, skirt, headband, and shawl—for an authentic, Frida-inspired appearance. The shirt features a red floral print over a yellow base, while the long, peasant-style navy skirt has a leaf pattern and bold orange accent stripe. Somehow, all the contrasting colors and patterns work in an artful way! The shawl and headband, though, truly tell the world "Hello! I'm Frida Kahlo!"
One of the reasons Frida's legacy has endured is due to the inspiring nature of her independent spirit. Don't forget to channel yours when you step out in this licensed costume; it's the most important part of the whole look!
