How to pull off a Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego costume. And how to turn it into a couples costume with Carmen Sandiego with a Where’s Waldo add-on!
If you were a kid of the ’80s or ’90s (yes that’s 1900s Gen-Z), You probably know Carmen Sandiego well! The educational video game Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego was so popular in the late 80s, that it turned into a TV show. Kids everywhere turned to the popular after-school Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego to learn geography, history, and even time travel. And younger kids may know her Netflix animated series too!
Any 90’s kid will tell you that Carmen Sandiego not only makes a great educational-oriented criminal, but she’s one of the best Halloween costumes out there!
Carmen Sandiego Costume Elements:

- Red Coat
A red trench coat is the main staple of Carmen’s outfit. Look for one with large buttons. And, if possible, a button color that is yellow or off-white. Also, you’ll want one with a red belt you can cinch around your waist.
- Yellow Scarf
Opt for a yellow scarf that’s solid in color
- Red Hat
A wide-brimmed bright red hat that matched the trench coat is perfect. Be sure to add a yellow ribbon around the hat brim. This red fedora hat would also work perfectly!
- Black Boots
Carmen wears black riding boots that come up to her knees. Any pair of knee-high black leather boots will work perfectly for your Carmen Sandiego costume.
- Pearl or Black Stud Earrings
A simple pair of pearl studs are the perfect accessory. However, the animated version also shows the criminal mastermind in simple black earrings.
- A Pair of Black Gloves
These can be formal satin gloves, black leather gloves, or even a simple cheap sweater glove that fits tightly across hands. Just make sure they’re solid black gloves and you’re all set!
If you want to purchase a ready-made set, there are a few great options! The quality and complete set are excellent from an Amazon seller. Just check for free shipping and return policy/returns shipping procedures. The sizing on costumes often funs a little small.
