Here's a top ten list of some fun Hispanic and Latino costumes that will make your familia stand out! From traditional dresses to iconic characters, we've got you covered. Let's get started!
1) Selena Quintanilla Costume
Can you say Bidi Bidi Bam Bam?! We all love the iconic Selena Quintanilla, from her signature long hair, bright lips, and hat, anyone in your familia will make a statement with this costume!

2. Chespirito Halloween Costumes
If you're Latina, odds are that you at least recognize some of these iconic characters like El Chavo de Ocho, La Chilindrina, or El Chapulin Colorado. I loved watching Chespirito growing up and I even love watching it now. So when these characters are pint size, it just makes you go awww! This is a great family themed costume!
3. Mini Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Halloween Costumes
Frida Kahlo has become a symbol of iconic Mexican art, Mexican pride and Latina feminism. It is no wonder why many women want to dress themselves up and their daughters as this icon. Though their relation was very volatile, Diego seems like a natural partner costume.
4. Bad Bunny Halloween Costume
If you know Cardi B, then you are probably familiar with Bad Bunny as well. Here's how you can make a fun and literal take on a "Bad Bunny" costume: Get a Bunny costume, I think for babies this is especially cute, use a baseball cap, sunglasses, a plastic gold chain, and there you go, you've yourself a Bad Bunny on your hands or for an older child check out this Bad Hare costume!
5. Juan Valdez or Taza de Cafecito Halloween Costume
You should know that my love for Cafecito is measured in daily ounces so of course I had to include some sort of Cafecito costume! You can have a Latte fun! Maybe each of you can be different types of cafecito? A Latte, a cappuccino, Cuban coffee, or if you're a family of 3 Mom can be the Coffee Bean, Dad can be the Cream and baby can be the Latte or Cappuccino!
6. Let's Taco Bout It Halloween Costumes
Ok so technically I'm Colombian American but my love for Mexican food is beyond borders. From tacos, "taco belle," burritos, and hot sauces, here's definitely a family theme you can work with!
