Halloween DIY Costume FRIDA KAHLO

Although the cashier at the goodwill had no idea who Frida Kahlo is (don't we live in L.A.?), it didn't damper my spirits, or will to be a dia de los muertos version of Frida this coming Halloween. Although my embroidered goodwill dress is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this years costume (complete outfit pictures coming soon!) it took me all day to embroider and I just couldn't contain myself when it came to showing off my needle work...boy are my fingers tired!

Sugars skulls and cobwebs, it's a fiesta of colors!

It all starts with a sketch!

Needs a colorful sash or belt...

Perhaps a few more accessories...

Spiderwebs, oh my!
