DIY HALLOWEEN COSUME - LENA HORNE IN BROADWAY RHYTHM

.

Last Halloween, I created a DIY costume based off Dorothy Dandridge’s character in the 1954 American musical film Carmen Jones as a way to honor her work. This year, I wanted to continue in the same vein; paying homage to women of color in the arts and creative world. 

I chose to highlight the ever-talented Lena Horne for this year’s DIY costume. You can learn more about Lena, the inspiration behind this look and how to create it yourself over on Blavity
