Original cosplay plans for Con-g fell through, so 4 days before the con I was trying to put together a new costume. While at the mall looking for my original idea, my friend and I saw a long red coat. He suggested I do Carmen SanDiego because it was the perfect jacket for it. Since I already had a black wig it was going to be easy to put together. Luckily I found a red hat at the only costume shop in the area. I already owned the wig, shirt, pants and boots. Oddly enough the gloves were the hardest thing to get because all the stores have switched to spring clothing. I ended up finding them at a dollarstore the day of the con.
