This is arguably the most important piece for your Carole Baskin team. At the beginning of the documentary, viewers are introduced to Carole as she tours her Big Cat Rescue sanctuary.

While she stocked her wardrobe with a variety of floral crowns, the one pictured above is interwoven with pretty pink roses. Amazon saves time again with an almost exact replica of that flower crown! This piece from Floral Fall is made from polyester leaves and flowers, and the flowers themselves are 3cm in diameter (so nothing too overwhelming on your forehead). The overall crown is about 7.87 inches in diameter, and is – best of all – handmade! $8, amazon.com

The roar also comes from a real lion, which Cornell Labs recorded! As an added bonus, the filler inside this toy is made from recycled water bottles.

Carole’s style is best described as bohemian. In the Netflix star’s photo above, she’s wearing loose-fitting blue jeans – comfortable enough for a walk around a wildlife sanctuary, but still trendy in front of the camera. So we’ve found these high-waisted flare jeans that fit both of those criteria! $40, amazon.com
Berry Lip Stain
Carole is wearing a berry lip color in the photo above, which is completely in line with her casual emotions. If you want to convey the same energy, we recommend using HAN cheeks and lips in the “Rose Berry” shade. We can imagine Carole also agreeing with this cheek and lip color, as it’s cruelty-free and also GMO-free or paraben-free. Instead, HAN colorizes cheeks and lips with plant- and mineral-based pigments — no “harmful synthetic chemicals” here, according to their Amazon page. It’s also made with ingredients like organic argan oil, organic shea butter, coconut and Vitamin E, creating a soothing effect on both your face and lips! $18, amazon.com
