How to Make a Carmen Sandiego Halloween Costume

Halloween How-To: Carmen Sandiego

Where in the world is your costume? Right here, thanks to geeksugar and my love of vintage video games. If you're in need of a classic (and classy) video game heroine (for my costume contest, perhaps), look no further than the wily traveling temptress herself, Carmen Sandiego.

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the game for its international intrigue and because I wanted to be Carmen. She was a woman of mystery, and she looked fabulous doing it.

Check out my picks for how to put together a last-minute Carmen Sandiego costume. The main elements are the red fedora and trench (which could be re-worn, actually, as the weather gets crisper); to finish off the image, make sure you constantly tip your fedora, avoid eye contact, and put some red lipstick on your Mona Lisa smirk.

Hmmm... Interesting costume. I think GeekSugar needs to give me more ideas on a costume for 2009 Comic-Con in San Diego... No Marvel grrls cuz those chicks are just too skimpy!

I was Carmen when I was younger. I already had the red coat and hat, so it was a go that year!

What a fantastic idea. The best part is, all of these pieces can be used after Halloween too, if you don't already have them.

Wow this is a great idea. I am going to have to change after seeing this. I am always looking for a cold weather costume.
