This Selena + MAC Costume Wins Halloween

There is no arguing that 2016 has become the year of Selena. She has gotten a wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, the Fiesta de la Flor festival enjoyed its second year, and Selena got her own makeup line at MAC. And, of course, Selena was one of the hottest Halloween costumes in 2016.

Selena fans celebrated Selena’s great year this year by dressing as the Tejano queen. From the purple jumper…

But one fan, Amanda Vazquez, went above and beyond and decided to become a tube of Selena + MAC lipstick.

“I have been a Selena fan all of my life. By the time I could talk, I was singing Selena songs [laughs],” Vazquez, who first saw Selena in concert in 1989 told mitú. “I was lucky enough to have seen her in concert a few times when I was younger in Texas.”

Vazquez told mitú that the idea for her genius Selena + MAC costume started as a joke.

“My friend first brought up the idea as a joke and I thought it was funny and that was kind of it,” Vazquez told mitú. “Then I started thinking of it and I knew people would be dressed as Selena but I knew nobody would be dressed as the Selena + MAC line so I decided to make the costume.”

So, where does one go when they are dressed up as Selena + MAC makeup and in Los Angeles? To see Selena’s wax figure and the MAC makeup store, obvi.

Overall, Vazquez said that people really enjoyed her her costume, especially in the MAC store.

“There was one girl in the store who was a Selena fan,” Vazquez told mitú. “She thought the costume was so cool.”

Thats how you do it, y’all! Nice work, Amanda.

Not only is the costume totally unique and incredible, Vazquez is happy that she was able to make a costume that was also work-appropriate.
