This Mom Made A Selena Costume With Only 50 Cents
When it comes to Halloween, no one slays harder than Selena Quintanilla fans.
People LOVE to dress up as la Reina del Tex-Mex because the costume options are fabulous and endless! Even Chris Brown’s daughter got the memo this year.
As dozens of people channel their inner Selena last Halloween, the Internet was obsessed over a particular costume a Latina mom handmade for her daughter for less than a dollar. Goes to show our parents see no limits when it comes to making us happy ❤️.
Putting together this iconic costume was a piece of cake for Noel’s mother, Maria Luisa Garcia. “My mom has made clothes for us since we were little,” said Noel Garcia to mitú. “Making my sister’s costume took her like five days I think,” he added.
“With just 50 cents my mom spent days & nights working hard to make my sisters Halloween costume,” posted Noel Escobar on Twitter. “She’s Selena Quintanilla.”

***My heart is going “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” right about now***
As Mexicans who reside in Sylmar, Calif., the Garcia’s are huge Selena fans. “I was the one who actually told my sister to dress as her and she did!” said Noel, 21, emphasizing that he and his twin sister, Dalia, grew up listening to Selena’s music.
The end result was FLAWLESS and people didn’t hesitate to praise this woman’s dedication and creative skills because anything for… moms who do everything for their children.

Some are even encouraging this mom to start her own business, because with those skills YAS.
@Noelskeez your mom needs to go into business for herself and make millions. That's incredible

The tweet has been retweeted more than 74K times since it was posted on Sunday night.
“I did not think it would blow up this big honestly!,” said Garcia to mitú. “My mom is so happy especially since they are saying really nice things about her. She’s such a hard worker, she deserves it,” he added.
As for mamá García… You da real MVP!
Moms have a way of being your biggest fans, harshest critics, best friends and worst nightmare at the same time. They will make you so happy and feel so validated when they yell at other people for coming for you but that same anger can backfire at you if you act up. While there might be some moments where you wish that you didn’t have to deal with your mother, there are just so many things that only our mothers do that keep us around.
