These costumes are perfection. What a great opportunity to get kids interested and informed about famous artists. And the whole thing about the ear is hilarious. So what if the kid doesn’t really understand it…the (art-educated) people handing out the treats will get a laugh out of it.

The year spent in Detroit was a difficult time for Kahlo. Although she had enjoyed visiting San Francisco and New York City, she disliked aspects of American society, which she regarded as colonialist, as well as most Americans, whom she found "boring". [194] She disliked having to socialize with capitalists such as Henry and Edsel Ford, and was angered that many of the hotels in Detroit refused to accept Jewish guests. [195] In a letter to a friend, she wrote that "although I am very interested in all the industrial and mechanical development of the United States", she felt "a bit of a rage against all the rich guys here, since I have seen thousands of people in the most terrible misery without anything to eat and with no place to sleep, that is what has most impressed me here, it is terrifying to see the rich having parties day and night while thousands and thousands of people are dying of hunger." [33] Kahlo's time in Detroit was also complicated by a pregnancy. Her doctor agreed to perform an abortion, but the medication used was ineffective. [196] Kahlo was deeply ambivalent about having a child and had already undergone an abortion earlier in her marriage to Rivera. [196] Following the failed abortion, she reluctantly agreed to continue with the pregnancy, but miscarried in July, which caused a serious hemorrhage that required her being hospitalized for two weeks. [32] Less than three months later, her mother died from complications of surgery in Mexico. [197] External images O'Sullivan, Michael (2 December 1996). "Putting the Best Face on Frida Kahlo".

It would be much easier to explain a hugely-influential historically-documented troubled artist personified in such an iconic way thank it would be to have to explain most of the costumes on here:Jordan, these are fantastic! They made me laugh out loud at my desk! I’m absolutely loving this series.
