Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
DescriptionThe coat is actually a rather hideous golf jacket that I bought at a thrift store. My mom didn't think I would possibly be able to find a decent Carmen Sandiego jacket. I walked into the store, skittered over the jacket section, picked it out and got to smile and say "Hey look, its in my size!". It was meant to be. Also hilarious. All I had to do was give it a wash and pick off the golf club logo on it. The hat cost about 4 times more than the jacket too, but it is a true Biltmore hat and the colour matches so well so its well worth it. The yellow undershirt and skirt I did make, but the rest is all bought items brought together.
My Carmen outfit is such a simple cosplay, and I get such good reactions when people come running to find out if I am really her ("I finally found you!!"). Definately my fallback costume for when I don't want to be wearing anything fussy but still want to cosplay.
