This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Micayla, the 'Mariachi Skeleton' costume creator:

Costume is my kid brother. Originally I bought him a firefighter costume that was not true to size. After being super bummed he looked at an online catalog and was super into the day of the dead. Super expensive stuff! So we took a glass figurone and decided to make out version. Coming from a Hispanic household the sombrero was easy to get our hands on. The suit was dress pants, and a dress shirt bought at Wal-Mart and vest and trumpet was a great thrift shop find. I searched everywhere for the right material to sew into and give the perfect tough. We covered the trumpet with spider's web and a few spiders. The bow and waist were handmade out of white silk material from Wal-Mart. Face paint don't by yours truly.
I felt like dress shoes would be a waste of money all though would have been more appropriate. I felt like his chucks would really bring in the culture. Everything just tied together. Complete with winter skelton gloves. Totally worth the whole month it took to make.
