DIY Carmen Sandiego Costume

Disclosure AffiliateMake your own DIY Carmen Sandiego Costume using this short list of items you can find online. Your costume will fit perfectly and be SO unique!

It’s that time of year for us to share more of our DIY Halloween costume ideas that are always such a big hit! This time we’re sharing one of our childhood favorites with this DIY Carmen Sandiego costume!! Everyone will be asking Where In the World You Are and will want to track you down in your amazing looking costume!

It’s easy to go to the local costume store or party store and buy a “pre-packaged” costume, but it’s definitely not the best option. If you’re going to a big party you’re likely to see someone else with the exact same costume and it just won’t be very original!

The other problem with a party store costume is that they are usually limited in sizes and you have to buy everything in one package – which doesn’t end up good if your top is bigger than your bottom or vice versa. The other awesome part of this costume is that you’ll want to wear every piece of it (with the possible exception of the hat!) long after Halloween is over.

Last year we shared some DIY Halloween costume ideas that were a big hit, so we’re back this year with some more!

My bet is that his costume will be the hit of your Halloween party.

We are getting closer and closer to Halloween! I need to share another great DIY costume idea.

Since this costume starts with a black dress that you buy in your own size, you will look so much more “put together” than a party store costume. And you DEFINITELY will be able to wear this dress again. Actually – you will probably end up wearing the whole outfit with the exception of the gloves, tiara and cigarette holder! All of the pieces needed for this costume can be found on Amazon:
