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.

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.

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.

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.

The Dress

The dress is most likely a gown or a pair of outfit for men that took inspiration from the 15th century era. Fancy would be the perfect term one can use to describe the look of your outfit. There will be a lot of old medieval prints with laces and petticoats for women. The corset top is also a common look for dresses in this theme. Men on the other hand should adapt the old Englishmen look with long sleeved tops with long tuxedo cuts at the back and pants paired with long English boots. Colors for men outfit are either leaning on the light ones or the dark ones, never in between.

The Mask

Masquerade ball masks are a staple for this kind of parties. A great mask is sometimes really required to complete the look for your masquerade attire. There are so many options to choose from and you can even easily make your own. Simply but a plain white mask on your local bookstore and decorate it with gems, rhinestones, sequins and feathers of your choice. Party supply stores like Parties Online on the other hand have readily available masquerade ball masks for your choosing. Or if you do not feel like wearing a mask, you can use make-up or face paint to draw a mask directly onto your face.

The Shoes

Neutral colors such as black and white are the most often used shade when it comes to shoes for a masquerade ball attire. Just make sure that your shoes match your dress. Women can actually get away with any kind of shoe for such parties since most masquerade ball dresses are of long length. However, to complete the look, one can still dress up and match their shoes accordingly. Heels can be a good choice for women, but you can still go for flats to stay comfortable especially if you plan to do a lot of dancing in the party.

Practicality in mind, it would be advisable to get shoes that can be used for other party themes as well. Your dress on the other hand can be rented or bought from specialty dress stores if your budget permits. Masquerade masks are great bedroom accessories on the other hand once your done with them at the party.

Dressing fancy in party can be taken into different levels. You can go as formal or dress fancy, something the young generation enjoys doing especially once they step into their university years.

Dressing fancy at work has its do’s and dont’s as well. Luckily, we have provided you a list of tips to do when it comes to nailing fancy dressing in any party you can imagine.

Do attempt to make your costume from scratch

Although it would be easier to get fancy dress costumes online, if your budget is restricted and your creativity in full, you can actually create a costume of your own from scratch. You can go and explore old fashion pieces from your parent’s wardrobe and add a few here and there to make it suitable for the event that you would be attending at. It can actually be fun rather than buying especially if you would put effort into it.

Don’t buy your costume fully made

If you do not know how to not know how to create a costume of your own and your parents wardrobe are far from your reach, you can opt to buy a fancy costume, but do not buy a fully made one. You are not guaranteed if you are going to use this piece of clothing ever again so it might not be wise to invest too much in a costume. You can create and improvise accessories that would go with it or stick with your favorite jeans with a costume top to go with your party outfit.

Do discuss group ideas

You are most likely arriving at the party with a friend or with a group so having a group concept with the costume that you intend to wear for the party is a wise idea. You can dress up as Scooby and the gang or as the Walking Dead characters. It will be fun and you’ll get loads of fun preparing your costumes as well.

Do not stray away from your group

It ok to mingle with the rest of the party attendees but be sure that your “gang” is just a few feet away in case someone asks where Daryl Dixon is or Rick is.  Don’t lose your group members as soon as you arrive in the party. Stick together for a while and enjoy the party as a group. You did arrive as a group after all so you could at least enjoy as a group as well.

Do prepare in advance

If you take this party and dressing up seriously, it would be better to prepare in advance. You might ran out of cloth for your DIY costume or the fancy Batman costume might go out of stock online if you do not make a move as early as possible. Do not compromise your look for the party, so be sure to plan ahead of time.

Do not go for last minute ideas

You would not be stressing out if you plan ahead of time for your fancy costume. Arriving at a party with an obviously hurriedly r=torn out shirt with dripping ketchup is definitely not cool for a party, especially in universities and at work.

Fancy costumes is actually exciting, most especially for adults who are rarely given the change to lighten up and relive the child in them. But when given the chance to do so, be sure to arrive creatively stunning.
