Tell your students about your life, what you have archived, when you were born, and more.

The Frida Kahlo costume comes with a v- neck shirt and a skirt that has an elastic waistband. This is a licensed Frida Kahlo costume but in my opinion, you can wear the shirt and the skirt even in your everyday life without looking like you are dressed up. The colors are as you can see them in the picture.
