Untitled. Digital Image. Rap Up. 24 September 2018.

Ignore the Halloween haters around you who are saying it’s too early to be prepping a costume. There’s no such thing as too early. The best Halloween costumes are thought of on Nov. 1 so some times you can spend an entire year getting the perfect costume. Thanks to our self-sufficient parents, we have no problem creating our won costumes.

Here are some of the best celebrity costumes we have seen over the years.

Lauren Jauregui and Ty Dolla $ign as Alice & Mad Hatter

It doesn’t matter who else dressed like Alice and the Mad Hatter from “Alice in Wonderland.” They crushed it.

Camila Cabello as a grandmother who sat on her cat.

It is funnier because she is surrounded by the typical sexy costumes you’ve come to expect from people. We cant wait to see what she chooses this year.

Girl made the outfit herself with help from her mom after she couldn’t find a salmon nigiri outfit. Maybe this year?

Adriana Lima as a Corpse Bride

The Brazilian supermodel went all out last year, dressed like a corpse bride with runway level makeup and dress on. This year, I’m Adriana Lima circa Halloween 2017.

Police Officer Demi Lovato

Demi always goes all out for Halloween. Last year, she dressed up like a muy sexy cop, but given the pose, we’re guessing she’s a little corrupt, too.

Demi Lovato as Selena

Fans freaked when she posted Selena Quintanilla channelled into beloved Demi. Tbh, everyone was shook by the outfit and it was all people could talk about all Halloween season.

Cardi B as “Bruella de Vil”

If you have a Dalmatian already, you’re halfway there. Cardi B introduced us to “Bruella de Vil” last year. As much as we love the Bardi, the outfit was too spot on given that she’s wearing real fur and we have no idea whose dog that is. Too close an impression for comfort, Cardi.

Manolo Gonzalez Vergara as a very cute Dalmatian

“Waking Up” star was a much more lovable Dalmatian, though he claims in his Instagram that he didn’t know it was Halloween. “These are just my pajamas.” Cute.

Selena Gomez as Jigsaw

Okay. Okay. It’s fake but isn’t it just incredible? Halloween doesn’t just have to be about being sexy. Some times it is fun to be scary and creepy because that’s what the holiday is really all about.

Jackie Cruz as a Carnival Girl

Jackie Cruz showed up in style at Heidi Klum’s famous Halloween party that only draws in the A-listers. Last year, she dressed as a Carnival Girl meets punk rock guapa.

Camila Mendes as a … something.

“Riverdale” star, Camila Mendes, dressed up as…well, no one really knows. Fans speculated about what the costume was and even Mendes was in on the joke offering other options than those created. Some of the guesses included an angel, a moth, a bird and a fairy.

Prince Royce as Chucky

I don’t know about you, but my mami is all about scarecrows, vampires and ghosts. Once you start mentioning Chucky or any true horror, it’s all, “ay, mija, calláte por favor.”

The mamis of the world may actually believe Chucky is as real as Prince Royce was last Halloween.

Lais Ribeiro as a Dead Nun

OK, so typically, Halloween is irreverant af, unless you’re a Catholic Latino. I was shocked to find out my parents dressed up like a priest and nun last year. All became believable again when the neighborhood got word and heckled the costumes right off them.

You go, Lais Ribeiro.

Bella Thorne as an Angel Bunny

Bella Thorne was a total angel last Halloween. Make your mamis proud, friends. Although I think a pose like this would make most people in your family clutch their pearls.

Alessandra Ambrosio as Jessica Rabbit

Nobody can forget when Alessandra Ambrosio was as leggy and cartoonishly stunning as the actual Jessica Rabbit last year. I mean, the models have it easy thought, de acuerdes?

Francia Raisa as BAM BAM

OK, so this was not a 2017 Halloween or you would see a pretty big scar from her kidney donation surgery last year. Raisa literally saved Selena Gomez’ life from lupus last summer.

Victoria Justice as Beetlejuice

I’m over here waiting for a Beetlejuice revival for my 2019 costume. This is one of the best costumes Justice has ever attempted.

Naya Rivera as a Sexy Mummy

All my dark haired Latinas out there, even Naya Rivera’s hair color is a feat to achieve. Our hair just doesn’t bleach or take those Halloween color hairsprays. Brava, Naya.

Gina Rodriguez as a cute Dino

For when you believe Halloween should always be comfy. Excuse to wear pajamas in public, yess, Gina. Tbh, I wish I could just wear stuff like this year round.

Christina Milian as a Ninja

Honestly, pull out your favorite old costume and invest in $15 colored contact lenses and nobody will even recognize you. It’s an investment, ok.

However, Halloween 2017 goes to Shakira and family for obvious reasons.

I honestly had no earthly idea who they were dressed up as. Just google Topo Gigio and you will know.

Alejandro Sanz Launched A Project To Help Support Dreamers And These Latino Celebrities Came Out To Help

LuisFonsi / India_Martinez_Oficial / Instagram

Alejandro Sanz has landed in the U.S. to kick of his La Gira tour and with that he is creating a new movement in support of Dreamers – undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. at a young age and have lived their entire lives stateside. Many A-listers are getting behind La Tortura singer’s Dreamers initiative which can easily be supported by means of a t-shirt. Ricky Martin, Camila Cabello and J Balvin are a few of the Latino celebs who have shared selfies wearing the charitable and comfy-looking tops.

The all-black shirts come in an array of styles including the classic t-shirt style, long sleeves, sleeveless and racerback tank tops and are available to purchase for the budget-friendly price of $26.99. Each of the shirts features #Dreamers written across the front with the letter A written upside down and encircled.

Funds from the shirts will help the Ascend Educational Fund which provides funds for their education, the Dream Big Nevada DACA renewal fund and the Immigrants Rising’s that provides subsidies to undocumented entrepreneurs who work to create positive social change.

Luis Fonsi

The Puerto Rican singer shared a photo wearing the classic style tee. Next to it he wrote, “Every great dream begins with a DREAMER. Don’t let anyone threaten your dreams or make you feel like you don’t belong.”

Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin supported the Spanish singer by posting a selfie where he looks completely chill and relaxed. He wrote, “I’m joining my friend Alejandro on this great initiative to support the Dreamers in the US. Because #WeAllDream. We all belong. We are all one. And EVERYONE matters.”

Camila Cabello

The Señorita singer didn’t fall behind as she also supported Dreamers. On her stories Camila shared a selfie and wrote, “I’m joining my friend @alejandrosanz on the initiative to support the #Dreamers in the US!!!” She continued, “Because they are kids just like us just trying to do the best they can in this world.”

Ricardo Montaner

The Venezuelan-Argentine singer did his part and supported the cause with a snap that he captioned with, “Alejandro asked me to call your attention, in his name and those of #dreamers… I also join this beautiful campaign.”

J Balvin

Colombiano J Balvin didn’t hesitate in purchasing a t-shirt and a coffee to go. The Con Altura singer shared a stylish pic wearing an all-black ensemble and standing next to a food truck. “A good coffee and a good cause CharityStars.com/Alejandro #WeallDream.”

India Martinez

The Spanish singer took part in the movement with a pic showcasing her support (and her flawless skin!).

Paty Cantu

The Mexican singer shared a radiant, fresh-faced selfie simulating a polaroid. “I think, then exist. I dream, then live. All dreams are important. And we can do more than by supporting with words. We can support with actions,” she wrote.

Ana Lorena

The Mexican-American actress proudly supports Alejandro with a stunning photo she captioned with, “I like people that don’t just stand still in moments of unease or discomfort. I like the kind of people who actually do something for change. That’s why I’ve joined @alejandrosanz, the #DreamerTeam and the Dreamers in standing together to fight for this cause.” 

Alejandro Sanz

Of course, Alejandro himself also took to social media to share how he wears the charitable shirt by posting his own smiling pic. “I wear the t-shirt of dreams fulfilled, and you? #DREAMERS #DreamerTeam #WeAllDream”

Disney Finally Gave Us A Trailer Of Pedro Pascal As A Bounty Hunter In ‘Star Wars’ Series ‘The Mandalorian’

Disney Finally Gave Us A Trailer Of Pedro Pascal As A Bounty Hunter In ‘Star Wars’ Series ‘The Mandalorian’

Since he starred in Netflix’s successful Narcos series about the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar and the Cali Godfathers, Pedro Pascal has become a powerhouse in the industry and one of the most revered actors in the era of streaming services. He already conquered Netflix’s audiences, and now he is due to do the same with the new player in the streaming market: Disney+.

This new service is likely to disrupt the power balance of the industry, as Disney owns the most profitable franchises in global entertainment. Yes, Disney has acquired the Marvel Universe, The Simpsons and Star Wars, three properties that are hugely profitable and that have captured our imagination for decades. 

Disney just unveiled its line up for Disney+, and the cereza en el pastel is the first live action TV show in Star Wars history. The Mandalorian follows the adventures of a bounty hunter as the shadow of the Empire looms and the galaxy is in a turmoil of violence and fear. Who you gonna call? Pedro Pascal, of course! Let’s not forget that he is used to big productions. Remember his Machiavellian but doomed character in Game of Thrones?

The Mandalorian is the television event of the year and Pedro Pascal is the leading man!

This is a big step forward in Pedro Pascal’s career. And, as we predicted back in 2019, this will be his breakthrough year. His name will be inscribed in the history of the galaxy alongside people like Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. Not bad for this man born in Santiago, Chile, in 1975. 

The trailer promises tons of action an a dark mood.

The action takes place in the outskirts of the galaxy, in the era of the New Republic. The trailer serves us Western mood and shows Pascal’s character as a lone gunfighter. Sounds and looks like a Clint Eastwood Western in space! We are all in for that, honestly! 

This Chilean heartthrob moves among the most powerful figures in the film industry.

Pedrito has earned a reputation of being an intense actor with a flare for drama. Besides his famous TV roles he has appeared on the big screen with the likes of Ben Affleck (Triple Frontier) and Denzel Washington (The Equalizer 2). He will star opposite Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman 1984. In this photo we see him with legendary Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar. A future collaboration, perhaps? We certainly hope so! 

And he has shown his talents in the sci-fi genre.

The 2019 moody sci-fi thriller Prospect shows that Pascal is well suited for the genre. This movie deals with a father-daughter relationship in which Pascal explored his histrionic range rather successfully.  

He has that classic Hollywood air, just like a Latino Marlon Brando.

Pedro Pascal has a valuable asset in the industry: he is capable of communicating the sort of vulnerable masculinity that made actors such as Marlon Brando, James Dean and Russell Crowe global superstars. We can totally imagine him in a classic film noir, drinking bourbon in a shady bar. He seems to be perfectly suited for The Mandalorian and we can’t wait! 

Star Wars is more diverse than ever.

The casting of Pedro Pascal is a watershed moment when it comes to diversity in the franchise. We interviewed Dan Golding, author of the book Star Wars after Lucas: A Critical Guide to the Future of the Galaxy to talk about the politics of the franchise and how important the recent casting of Black and Brown people in leading roles is. 

He told us: “Star Wars has always been political, but under Disney, that’s shifted. When Lucas ran the show, Star Wars acted as political commentary and parable, ranging from the way the original trilogy deliberately allegorized the Vietnam war, to Anakin Skywalker’s paraphrasing of George W. Bush in the prequels. Today though, it’s much more about production and casting – Disney has grasped that who tells stories and which voices are included is as important as what they’re about.”

He added, “While it remains to be seen whether Pascal will even get to show his face as the masked bounty hunter currently known as The Mandalorian, his casting in the lead role reinforces Disney’s willingness to look beyond the stale white predictability that previously made the galaxy far, far away seem very plain indeed.”

And now Diego Luna is in da house! More Latinidad, porfavorcito!

Mexican actor Diego Luna famously starred in the sci-fi war film Rogue One in 2016, perhaps the best Star Wars spin-off to dateWell, now our favorite chalorastra (his fans will get the reference, a huevo!) will reprise his role of Cassian Andor in a prequel. It will be a TV show and it promises huge doses of action and Latino attitude.
