Mexican fancy dress can be a great look to wear for all sorts of occasions. There are lots of easy to put together Mexican fancy dress outfits for men and women… and there are plenty of opportunities to get creative with this theme as well. Let’s take a look at some of the great mexican costumes that fancy dress fans have put together.
How to make a Mexican Fancy Dress Costume?
For a guy there are some classic Mexican looks to go for. The most traditional involves throwing together a few items of clothing that are typically associated with country. Namely you will need a big sombrero, a poncho and droopy moustache.
Typically the sombrero will be a large straw hat with a band round the middle in a Mexican pattern. For the poncho you can either get a real one. They can be pretty expensive though so only go for this option if this is something you intend to wear in other circumstances. Otherwise it is easy to pick up a cheap fancy dress sombrero as part of a costume. These are easily available online and you should not have much trouble finding one. You should keep an open mind though because a poncho can be an interesting thing to wear in other circumstances. The fancy dress ponchos tend to be designed to be disposable. By that I mean that they will be worn once or twice then thrown away or left at the back of a cupboard. Make sure you pick the poncho that meets your needs.
To get a great mexican fancy dress moustache you have to make sure it is droopy. So if you have the facial hair for it you can just shave it in to the correct shape otherwise you are going to have to pick up a fake moustache.
Tequila Shot Girl Fancy Dress
A funny look for a party, and a great Mexican fancy dress costume for women, is a tequila shot girl costume or mexican waitress fancy dress costume. You know those people who go round bars selling shots for a quid? You can be one of those and go round the party offering Tequila shots. This is a very popular costume and it is easy to see why.
Tequila Fancy Dress
Another funny, and slightly, different option to wear to fit in with a Mexican costume theme is a Tequila fancy dress costume. Tequila is the national drink of Mexico and there are some great tequila bottle costumes available online. I particularly like this as it is a bit of a twist on the kind of thing people expect when you tell them you are going along in a Mexican outfit.
