Halloween costumes should not be bought in plastic packaging. You'll spend too much money on something you'll only wear once and likely run into a few other people with the exact same look.
This is a halloween costume I've been trying to do for years. I never quite prepare enough to get it right but I think it's one of the best ideas because she had such a strong look and it's simple to recreate with enough planning.
Josephine Baker (June 3, 1906 – April 12, 1975) was an American-born French dancer, singer, and actress.luent in both English and French, Baker became an international musical and political icon. She was given such nicknames as the "Bronze Venus", the "Black Pearl", and the "Créole Goddess".
Legendary in her time and a legacy that will live on for centuries, Josephine had a strong character to match her looks and talent.
Make-Up/ Hair: There are great 1920s inspired videos on YouTube for that thin pencil brow and perfect finger waves.
Accessories: Multistrand pearls from any bead shop or costume jewellery shop. Big, big chandelier earrings. Faux Bananas to attach to a belt and create her signature skirt OR create a modified version by cutting a hula skirt into a mini so that you have movement when you walk. Any added bling you can find to create a dazzling effect.
Attitude: Dance all night, make a grand entrance, make yourself unforgettable.
Extra Treat: Watch Baker on stage!
