I don't know if any of you are old enough to remember Carmen Miranda, but my husband and I had been talking about old movies and her name popped up. She was a very talented, colorful (to say the least) Brazilian Star who appeared in many american movies. She sang, danced and acted, but the most impressive thing about this lady to me as a kid, was the way she held the headpiece she wore on her head while she sang and danced. She was my inspiration for this piece and how it came together. But I may have to do another one of her in her full costume.
The name of this is "Carmen" what else could I call it. LOL
Here's the real "Carmen" she's just lovely. Check out some of the movies she was in, they were great fun.
