DIY Esmeralda Costume Guide

To create the base of the costume, you will need to get a light purple maxi dress with short sleeves. Around your waist, you should tie a chiffon sash, which will cinch the dress and give it more shape.

Grab some belly scarvesto drape around your waist to create her layered skirt look.

On her wrists, she wears golden bangle bracelets that clink together when she dances. In her ears, she wears a pair of large gold hoop earrings.

Esmeralda has curly, shoulder-length black hair, so get a wig to match her own. You can also carry a tambourine around you to finish off the whole look.

About Esmeralda

Esmeralda is a Romani woman who constantly seems to be on the move. She winds up in the same city as Quasimodo, who is also known as The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

What is the most famous quote from Esmeralda?

1. “It is to be brother and sister; two souls which touch without mingling, two fingers on one hand.”

2. “You would have imagined her at one moment a maniac, at another a queen.”

3. “I wanted to see you again, touch you, know who you were, see if I would find you identical with the ideal image of you which had remained with me and perhaps shatter my dream with the aid of reality.”

4. “He left her. She was dissatisfied with him. He had preferred to incur her anger rather than cause her pain. He had
kept all the pain for himself.”

5. “Oh! Love! That is to be two and to be but one. A man and a woman mingled into one angel. It is heaven.”

6. “One drop of wine is enough to redden a whole glass of water.”
