Presenting Little Miss Frida! I don’t want to play favorites but this Frida Kahlo Costume might be my new favorite to date! The dress, the headpiece, the braids…. I can’t handle it!
This costume could be as intricate or as last minute as you want; you can’t do Frida wrong! Here is how I made mine: I used a few basics from Primary; the Cardi Sweater in Cherry, the Reversible Sundress in Cobalt and Pool and the Jersey Slim Tee in Black. You for sure want the red sweater, but the color options for the dress and shirt are endless!
These were my inspiration photos. I love the photo of Frida on the left and I really love the Frida Barbie’s outfit so that is what I based this costume on. I’d say Bee nailed it right?!
I started with the shirt and found a few pieces of trim at Joann and sewed the trim on the black tee. You could definitely use fabric glue or wonder under. I also got a little piece of gold rope for her bolo necklace.
I really liked the blue dress with the little white flowers on it so I cut some tiny white flowers out of heat transfer vinyl and pressed it on to the dress. Then I added a little trim to the bottom. Again, I sewed it on but fabric glue would work here as well!
Lastly, is my favorite part… the headpiece. I bought some fake flowers from the dollar store and hot glued them to a solid black headband. I did a “faux crown braid”, not really sure what it’s called, I think I just made that term up. Good thing I’m not a beauty blogger because I barely know what I’m talking about haha! I think I’ll stick to crafts and costumes :)
Don’t forget Frida’s signature thick brow. I used dark brown (almost black) eyeshadow and a q-tip to create the heavy eyebrow look. I also added a little pinky-orange lipstick which was Bee’s favorite part of this modeling session ha!
This whole costume took me around an hour or so to pull together! I did do a little sewing because sewing is easy for me and I have everything set up but this could easily be a no-sew costume.
Special thanks from me and my little Frida Girl to Primary.com for the clothes! Let me know if you have an questions and Happy Halloween!
