Mariachi Boy Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Cindy, the 'Mariachi Boy' costume creator:
My 11 year old son, Jarrett is wearing his diy Mariachi costume. We came across "The Three Amigos" movie poster and thought this would make an awesome costume idea. I found a pink sombrero hat at our dollar/party store and spray painted it black. I bought a red scarf for the necktie and cumberbund, and black jacket at Goodwill. The jacket was too long, so I cut it waist length and hemmed it, along with shortening the sleeves. Jarrett had a white shirt in the closet, and I found black jeans in our hand-me-down bins. Then, armed with a bottle of white fabric paint I decorated the hat, jacket, and pants with Mariachi inspired designs. Add an old violin and Jarrett looks ready to make some toe-tapping music on the plazas of Mexico!
I spent a total of $15 for the jacket, scarf, hat, & paints
