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.
