20 Latino Celebrities Who Dressed Up For Halloween Last Year To Inspire You This Year

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.

JetBlue Issued An Official Apology After One Employee In Florida Dressed Up As A Hurricane Maria Victim

JetBlue Issued An Official Apology After One Employee In Florida Dressed Up As A Hurricane Maria Victim

@nats248 / Twitter

Every Halloween, we have the misfortune of reporting on how white people still don’t understand that culture, poverty, and other races are not costumes. JetBlue has recently issued an apology after one of its employees at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport showed up to work in a homeless Hurricane Maria refugee for Halloween. With tattered hair, makeup smeared across her face, and ripped disheveled clothing, the woman carried a cup for change and an offensive sign. It read, “Homeless, Need help trying to get back home to Puerto Rico or Cuba.”

According to one Twitter user, the costume “sparked controversy” at the airport, offending both employees and travelers alike. The Twitter user decided to take to the Internet to gather public opinion, tweeting, “This was the costume of a JetBlue employee at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I want to read your opinions.” Needless to say, the employee has been adequately roasted by Latinos everywhere, JetBlue has issued an apology, and has told NBC News that “the situation was immediately addressed.” 

Immediately, people took offense to the idea of dressing up as a Hurricane Maria refugee.

“It seems fatal to me. It doesn’t matter if she didn’t say Cuba or Puerto Rico,” one offended Twitter user said in Spanish. She went on to say, “Many people don’t care about the homeless because they think they “asked for it,” but that is the sad reality of life. So many don’t care or respect the pain or difficulties of others.” Another Latino commented, “This IS offensive. Not because the name of my country is there, that only reflects their ignorance. But the issue of being homeless is too delicate and it is not funny at all to not have a roof, food, or clean clothes … but that’s just me.”

Meanwhile, Florida has become a hub for displaced Puerto Ricans after Hurricane Maria decimated the island.

One woman took offense to the degrading imitation of the immigrants “who created and are the basis of this country.” Another woman suggested that the staff be given some sensitivity training regarding the community they serve, actual Cubans and Puerto Ricans. “Not sure if they know but thousands of people lost everything due to Hurricane Maria,” tweeted another dissenter. “For this JetBlue employee to think it’s OK to joke about the epidemic of homelessness in Puerto Rico and the U.S. is sickening and completely unacceptable. That’s NO JOKE.”

Another Latina was absolutely incredulous that a JetBlue employee actually “showed up to work in this racist and highly offensive ‘costume.’ People’s hardship and suffering should not be mocked like this.”

Then, the Twitter trolls infiltrated, calling Latinos “snowflakes” and “virtue signalers” for taking offense at the costume.

We’ll spare you some of the more pointedly racist remarks. One user defended the costume, wondering out loud to a group of Latinos if, “maybe she couldn’t afford an expensive store bought costume, so she used what she had.” She went on to say, “I was a gypsy practically every year growing up, I’m sure that’s offensive too these days!” 🦗🦗🦗

Someone else jokingly pointed out that the costume is a fail because there is zero bandera pride. 🇵🇷🇨🇺

“It grates me because a true homeless Boricua would have the flag, even if it was painted on their teeth,” tweeted Mr. Rivera. The Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College in New York reported that more than 135,000 Puerto Ricans fled the island for the mainland United States within six months after Hurricane Maria made landfall. Nearly 57,000 of them moved to Florida. Puerto Rican homelessness is no laughing matter. Hurricane Maria made significant, generational impacts on Puerto Ricans. Whether the JetBlue employee decided to take on that traumatic event as a weak pander to vacation on the Caribbean island, or if she truly was so ignorant that we cannot find reason for her costume, commenting Latinos are largely “furious.”

Others are demanding that JetBlue actually “leave her jobless to find the joke in her ‘costume.'”

“Shame on @JetBlue and their management for not sending this employee home as soon as they saw this highly inappropriate & insensitive ‘costume’. SHAME!,” commented one user. Jetblue has not responded to the tweet that set the public roasting in motion. Jetblue’s manager of corporate communications, Derek Dombrowski, emailed NBC News to issue an apology: “In the spirit of Halloween, our crew members are welcome to celebrate in costume, but one crew member chose a costume that was clearly insensitive and not in line with our costume policy. The situation was immediately addressed, and we apologize to anyone who was offended.”

While JetBlue has apologized for the offense, folks still want to know how the employee was “immediately addressed.”
