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.”

Hay historias que son mejores que se queden en novelas, son el caos y el dolor, representan a Frida en la cama pariendo dolor y las costillas rotas, de todo un sin fin de piezas de ajedrez mal jugadas. No hay ganadores en nuestra historia, uno no quiere tocar las heridas y tampoco pensar, en el tal vez. Para protegernos eligi dos palabras, nos quieren o nos alejan; alejarme lo hacía una y otra vez. Nunca mi idea era irme, la vida se hostiga a veces con nosotros y no tenemos salidas, que persevar nuestra esencia. Era construir Roma, Era construir fuerza y era construirme a pasos lentos, pero edificarme para que nadie destruya mis paredes emocionales y ver el amor sereno. Era una manera dulce, de sentir como el dolor cobraba vida. Cuando tienes tanto dolor, nadie puede entender. No entender las señales, era el martirio; los insomnios y las lágrimas siempre tienen nombre. Esperaba tiempo mejores, esperaba el sol y creo que fueron muchos días nublados. Para encontrar tal vez unos brazos en quién dejarme caer, por ahora no veía bondad y no podía confiar en nadie, sólo en mi corazón.
