Dress Like Mama Imelda Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Mama Imelda was firm and strict when she was alive, and she held onto that until her death. She might have been bitter throughout the rest of her life but that’s understandable. She did have to raise her daughter alone. But her story goes to show that it’s never too late to change and forgive.

Mama Imelda was already dead in the film so she was a skeleton with black hair pinned back. She wears a purple dress with a brown apron in front. Here’s everything you need to look like Mama Imelda.
