Making A Carmen Miranda Costume

November 1, 2011

As soon as I found an old photo of Carmen Miranda, I knew her colorful style and punchy attitude would make a perfect Halloween costume project. I had the photo up in my bedroom for months and built the costume piece by piece for just as long.

Instructions:

My favorite little DIY secret with this one is the black "sequins" on the top. For the life of me, I couldn't find any sequins for sale that were big enough or shiny enough to match the photo. To substitute, I got plain black photos printed up for under a buck and just cut them into sequins!

The makeup and the 'tude were just the sexy icing on the sassiest cake my Halloween party had ever seen.
