Easy Homemade Mexican Costume Ideas

A Mexican party can be simply described as a fun, musical and colorful one. It offers a lot of colors, great food and danceable music for all Mexican and Mexican at heart. Personally, what I love the most are the costumes that kids and adults wear during this kind of party.

There are many Mexican costumes available online like the ones from Parties Online. However, for the budget conscious ones, you can still opt to create a costume from scratch or update the earlier ones that you had in the past to save a few dollars when dressing up for these occasions. With Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo both landing on a Tuesday this year, there are practically several Mexican parties hitting town. Be prepared to enjoy the food and embrace the fun while flaunting your DIY Mexican inspired costumes without the financial guilt.

The Mexican Moustache

One can simply create the iconic Mexican Mustache by drawing it on a cardboard with black. Up the ante of your creativity by adding cotton or fibers dabbed in black ink to make it look more realistic. You can even use old wigs, cut them off and style it to look like a Mexican mustache. It will definitely complete your Mexican vibe even with a simple shirt and pants on.

The Mexican Dress

Mexican dresses for women are full of color and flair. You can either go with the simple one tone look or the colorful one that will definitely be as equally fun. Decorate your white shirt and skirt with colorful laces in green, red, blue and violet hues to make it look even more vibrant. You can even go with a two piece set if you would want to be in something sexy. Just remember to decorate the hem of our dress with a lot of colors because this is what most women Mexican dresses looks like.

The Mexican Poncho

Mexican men on the other men must look macho at all times even during parties because this is what they are known for. As for their DIY party look, one can simply get a colorful fabric and have it folded in half where they can put a hole. This is where their head goes. A Mexican hat or sombrero would go well with this colorful attire. The sombrero can be decorated with fabrics of vibrant colors as well.

The Mexican Lucha Libre

Mexicans love wrestling. Why not go “sporty” and emit the champion spirit of the Lucha Libre. All you need is a red cape, a red pair of tight pants and a colorful mask. Do not worry about the belly or the feeling of being too exposed. It would be a refreshing and surprising costume you can definitely pull off in your Mexican party. It is also a perfect excuse to be a little bit more macho during the party.

If you still see yourself confused with what to wear, you can simply grab a colorful shirt, a faded pair of jeans and your old guitar to fit in the crowd while enjoying this year’s Taco Tuesday and Cinco de Mayo all rolled into one.

Choose Light and Bright Fabrics

Imagine yourself going to the beach. You wouldn’t wear your sneakers and thick jackets right? For ladies, you can get your maxi floral dress. For guys, you can now wear your khaki or board shorts. Imagine that you are in a tropical island. The main objective is to look refreshing and feel refreshing the whole time in the party. It would rather be uncomfortable to walk around with a big head dress during the party. Go light and have fun.

Get the Best Footwear 

It’s about time that you ditch your heels and your leather shoes just for this event. You can choose comfortable sandals to go with your light clothes. Make sure you cleaned your feet. Otherwise, it will ruin your entire look. Comfort is also one of the most important aspects to consider for this accessory, and an excuse to wear your favorite flip flops in a party.

Look Natural

For ladies, try not to have a full makeup with your eyelash extensions and the likes. Go for simpler look, something which is dewy and fresh. A simple hairdo should do the trick as well. Tie your hair up if it is too sunny to feel lighter. Beach waves would definitely look great with your floral ensemble.

Learn How to Accessorize

And of course, learn how to accessorize. You can make your own necklace, bracelet or anklet. Or perhaps, your pearl earrings should do you just good.

Most importantly, don’t forget to flash your pearly whites. After all, nothing beats the best accessory – which is a genuine smile. We hope we were able to help you get fresh ideas on how you can look your best for your next Hawaiian party. Just check what’s inside your closet first before you rush to the nearest mall to buy a brand new wardrobe.
