Here are some quick costumes that could be pulled together last minute with an errand or two and from stuff you already have. We put together three classic artist costumes: Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, and Vincent Van Gogh for less than $15 each. These are usually the kind of costumes I end up doing when I’m super busy. I like them simple and classic. Click through here for more photos and all the details.
Andy Warhol // For Andy Warhol we dressed him all in black and added that crazy white wig. You can add some black Wayfarer sunglasses if you wanted too.
Materials Needed: Andy Warhol Wig, Black Turtleneck, Black Pants, Tomato Soup Cans.
Frida Kahlo // We based this costume off one of the beautiful Frida Kahlo’s self portraits. The key to a good Frida costume is the flowers in the hair and the unibrow and moustache.
Materials Needed: Clip on Flowers, Eyeliner Pencil, Earrings, Scarf, and Dress.
Vincent Van Gogh // For Van Gogh we kept it really simple. We bought a red wig and beard and then trimmed it to look like Van Gogh then wrapped some gauze over his poor ear. You could also frame a small picture of Starry Night and carry it around.
Materials Needed: Red Wig and Beard, Gauze, Blue Jacket.
