Cute, Creepy And Cool: Check Out Some Of This Year’s Most Creative Costumes

It’s Halloween! That means some super creative souls are showing off clever costumes that’ll make us say, “Man, why didn’t I think of that?” Here are some of our favorites so far:

Clearly, Cardi B is one of the most popular costumes of the year.

The rapper recently got engaged to Offset of Migos, so it makes for one of the best couples costumes of 2017.

This Cardi B costume can be described in one word: accurate.

Celia Cruz at the Latin Grammys will always be classic.

Instantly recognizable, eye-catching, and super fun. How can you go wrong with this kind of costume? Hint: you can’t.

This clever man showed up as El Rey del Acordeon, Ramón Ayala.

That’s definitely one costume no one will ever forget and how could they.

If rancheras are more your speed, here’s the one and only Chente.

The giant head is a nice touch. Really makes him stand out.

This JuanGa get up is clever and kinda creepy, tbh.

That’s definitely El Divo but that mask doesn’t totally do him justice.

This little cutie has that Romeo Santos post completely down.

This classic J.Lo and Diddy look will take you back to the year 2000…

Jenny from the block and P. Diddy ?

This “Ladies of the Supreme Court” costume features Sonia Sotomayor.

Demi Lovato as Selena is only going to make you more envious than you already are.

First of all, you look incredible, sweetie. Secondly, who wants to make me this same outfit for a $3 budget?

LaLa Romero nailed this Selena look from the 1994 Grammy Awards.

Holding an actual Grammy Award is a great touch.

America Ferrera’s “Superstore” character is also getting a lot of love this year.

Can you guess who I am?! #superstore

Yes, one of the funniest sitcoms on network TV features a Latina lead. 

This little paletero proves that you’re never too young for a great and creative outfit.

Even when the paletero is that young you’ll struggle to keep up with him.

Last, but not least, this J.Lo and Pitbull couple’s costume slays.

¡Dale! What costumes are you all wearing this year? Show us in the comments below!

J.Lo’s Celebrating Selena Video Is The Heartwarming Content We Need Right Now

Selena will always be a legend for Latino music lovers. The Tejano singer gave us English and Spanish songs that continue to rock our worlds. Her music is still played on the radio, in bars, and she always makes it to a few playlists out there. This weekend, people took some time to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of the release of the biopic honoring the singer.

Jennifer Lopez came through on #CelebratingSelena with her own video honoring the singer and her chance to play the role.

We’ve all seen the movie more times than we care to count. It was probably one of the most impactful movies in our younger years. It was so wonderful to see our culture represented through Selena. It was a rare moment of fully authentic representation and it is not something we will ever forget.

J.Lo’s tweet hit Selena fans in the feels as they all took time to remember the late singer.

Selena was grace and class personified. Her ability to jump into the mainstream as a Latin singer shows the kind of power she had in the music industry. She broke down barriers for Latina artists who have come after her to lead successful careers, like J.Lo and Shakira.

Who could forget the iconic bustier scene?

You know you quote “busti-caca” way more than you want to admit to. It might just be the most quotable line in the whole movie. Now that most of us are working from home until further notice, it would be a great time to watch one of the most iconic Latino films of all time.

It is still inspiring people to pay tribute to La Reina.

Even 25 years after her death, people are loving her sound and keeping her memory alive through tribute videos and just listening to her music. Selena truly is someone people will never forget. She was recently inducted into the Houston Rodeo’s Star Trail of Fame and continues to be a major figure in Latino American pop culture.

Don’t worry. You can spend any day celebrating Selena because she is one person who is always worth celebrating.

Selena Quintanilla has been a very important part of the Latino community since she first started to record music. Her sound is something we all know and grew up with. Finally, after so many years, the Tejano singer is finally being honored by the Houston Rodeo’s Star Trail of Fame.

Selena performed at this venue three times throughout her career. However, it was her last performance on Feb. 26, 2020 that left a lasting impression on fans. The show was made famous by her iconic purple jumpsuit. It was her last concert and it will live in the memory of her fans forever.

Twenty-five years after Selena performed at the iconic venue, the Tejano singer was finally given a top honor.

Of course, Selena’s sister Suzette and brother A.B. III were there to revel in the accomplishments of their sister. Selena’s induction to the Star Trail of Fame is historic because she is the first Latina ever inducted into the trail. Other members of the Star Trail of Fame are Elvis, Reba McIntire, and George Strait.

Selena was inducted on two very important days for her induction. It was both International Woman’s Day and Go Tejano Day as the late Tejano singer was honored by the group. Despite having been dead for two decades, Selena continues to inspire Latinos through her music.

It might have taken a very long time, but the honor is one that Selena definitely deserves.

With a handful of English-language songs, Selena made the jump from Latin music to mainstream pop. Her influence is still seen today when celebrities wear clothing with her image keeping her memory alive with more than just Latino music fans.

Congratulations, Selena.

We still love and admire you. You deserve all of this recognition, mija!
