I was in love with the computer game 'Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego" as a kid, and was brainstorming the idea of being some sort of character in 'popular culture'and not a 'dead bride, princess etc'
I went to Value Village and miraculously found a perfect skirt and suit jacket set for about $10.00, used some black tights and knee high high heeled boots that I already had. I bought an old yellow childrens Halloween costume and cut it up to make the band around the hat and the 'blouse' that went under the suit jacket. The felt hat was bought at the Costume hub 'Dresser' in Vancouver. I wish I had longer, darker hair but it still worked amazingly!
Please note, this Homemade Carmen Sandiego Costume was my 2008 costume, and I am not trying to enter the 2009 contest, but just want to post my costume! Thanks
Comments for Coolest Homemade Carmen Sandiego Costume
I used to LOVE the computer game "Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego" so I thought I'd be her for Halloween. I won first prize in a costume contest. I got the coat at a retail store. It's a winter coat but it was a cold October night so it came in handy and I could get more use out of it. The hat I got at a Halloween store for $8. I bought yellow ribbon for a dollar and just wrapped it around. Shoes and leggings I already had plus a little red lipstick and there you have it, a Homemade Carmen San Diego Costume!
