All you really need is some makeup, fake flowers and a good large scarf or shawl. But I'll break it down to show you how I did I created my Frida Kahlo costume!
There are more photos on the last step, and Audrey should be hooking me up with an amazing Frida Kahlo and her animals friends portrait of the costume, too!
Step 1: What you'll need:
- large earrings
- large necklace
- a scarf/shawl
- dress or top with a large rounded neckline
- a long colorful skirt
- fake flowers in colors to match your clothes
- bobby pins and ponytail holders
- blush, mascara, an eye pencil (that matches your brows) and lipstick
You should probably also memorize some Frida Kahlo facts. Check out the Frida Kahlo wikipedia page for those.
Step 2: Prepping your hair
Part your hair down the middle and secure it into two low pigtails. If you've got bangs like I do, part them and pin them back securely first!
If you have really thin hair like me, it wouldn't hurt to tease the pigtails just a bit to add volume.
Step 3: Cross the braids on the top of your head
You can secure the bottom of the braids to your head with bobby pins if you like, but because my hair is so fine I let them hang out where they were.
