Love to Dress Up Like Frida Kahlo? Get to Dallas to Break a World Record and Make History

Do you love Frida Kahlo enough to break a world record? If you want to make history all in the name of Frida Kahlo, you might want to book a trip to Dallas ASAP.

A couple of weeks ago we told you about a fascinating exhibit at the Dallas Museum Of Art featuring artwork by Frida Kahlo. The art institution is continuing on with the celebration of our favorite Mexican goddess by attempting to break a Guinness World Record with the largest gathering of people dressed as Frida. It will all happen on July 6 at their Frida Fest — yes, on her birthday! And the whole thing sounds like a dream!

If you want to be part of this history-making moment, you have to meet specific guidelines. Here are the rules, according to the Dallas Museum Of Art (DMA):

Each participant must wear the following items per Guinness World Records, and items cannot be shared between two individuals:

  • A unibrow drawn onto the face joining the eyebrows; this can be done with make-up or by sticking hair.
  • Artificial flowers worn in the hair; a minimum of three artificial flowers must be worn.
  • A red or pink shawl.
  • A flower-printed dress that extends below the knees on all sides; the dress must not have any slits up the side.

Sounds so amazing to be able to meet up with other Frida lovers and honor her legacy on her birthday. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Whether you take part in this gathering for the world record, or simply want to enjoy the Frida festivities, there’ll be clearly more than one way to have fun on this day.

Aside from the gathering, attendees will be able to get their makeup done like Frida, and there’s also a theater performance that takes you on a “short journey following the evolution and phases of Frida Kahlo’s life, pain, love, and art.”
