1) Walter Mercado

What you need:

  • Any color blazer  –bedazzled with sequin, jewels, lace, diamonds, ect.
  • Rings of every kind –one on each finger if possible
  • An over-the-top bolo tie / pendant for the neck
  • Short-haired blonde wig
  • Light makeup –blush and baby pink lips, a must
  • A crystal ball –a light-weight bowling ball will get the job done
  • Don’t forget the long cape!

How to rock it:

You will have to release your inner vogue for this one and use lots of hand gestures while telling people their horoscope.

As you sign off for the night, don’t forget to say Walter Mercado’s memorable line: “Y que reciban de mi paz, mucha paz, pero sobre todo, mucho, mucho, mucho…*blow kiss* amorrrrrrrrrr.”


 2) Pitbull

Pitbull at the World Cup was all the rage, why not dress up like him on Halloween?

What you need:

  • Bald cap
  • Oversized brown sunglasses
  • Tight white capri pants –this is essential in the look
  • Brasil polo shirt –don’t forget to tuck it in
  • White loafers
  • Fake tattoos and microphone will finalize the costume

How to rock it:

Smile. Smile at all times. But not just any smile, flaunt your biggest smirk, as if you started in the hood and now you’re singing at the World Cup Opening Ceremony.

Don’t forget to sing “We Are One (Ole, Ola)” and wave your hands from side to side, like you just don’t care.

Dale! y Hapi Hallowing Mami!


 3) Gloria Trevi

A Gloria Trevi costume is easy to make.

What you need:

  • Stockings or leggings with many holes
  • Skirt or high-waisted shorts to wear on top
  • Bedazzled bra
  • Leather jacket or vest
  • Boots –preferably high-knee ones
  • Lots of jewelry
  • Big hair don’t care!

How to rock it: 

Be sexy, be rebellious, be daring — and crawl around while singing aloud your favorite Gloria Trevi song. Think eighties and nineties.


 4) Cristian Castro

Go nude to be Cristian Castro on Halloween.

What you need:

  • Parted hair in the middle / somewhat messy
  • A white or cream thong / banana hammock –if you can find a “saiote” even better
  • A crazy stare and creepy smile–overly arched eyebrows wouldn’t hurt either

How to rock it: 

We don’t want people to think your nuts on Halloween, we want people to know you’re “Cristian freakin’ Castro and saiote.” Therefore, we suggest walking around with this photo in hand, in case they call the police.

If you want to take if up a notch, have a friend dress up as a masseuse and pose for photos by intertwining fingers. Again, don’t forget the crazy stare and creepy smile.


 5) Lionel Messi

What you need:

  • Bright red blazer
  • Bright red vest
  • Bright red dress pants
  • White dress shirt
  • Black bow tie
  • A pissed-off expression –the whole night

How to rock it: 

Unless you’re a huge soccer fan, you wouldn’t understand this outfit –which went viral on the web. Otherwise, have a friend dress up as “Best Soccer Player in the World” Cristiano Ronaldo, and both can be “rivals” for the night.

Have your friend flaunt his FIFA Ballon d’Oro, all while your angry face and cocky attitude are on-point.


 6) Shakira and Rihanna

Shakira and Rihanna are good inspirations for Halloween costumes.

What you need:

  • Your biffle to dress as Rihanna (or Shakira)
  • Sexy black leotards –get creative with a cutout one-piece
  • Black heels
  • Wavy-haired blonde wig or curly black wig
  • Cigars
  • Lots of gold bracelets, rings, earring and necklaces

How to rock it: 

Get flirtatious and risque as Shaki and RiRi did in the “Can’t Remember to Forget You” video. If on a dance floor, don’t forget to do a lot of hip shaking and booty popping.


 7) Enrique Iglesias and Gente D’Zona

Why not dress up as Gente D' Zona and Enrique Iglesias for Halloween?

What you need:

  • You and two friends
  • For the Gente D’Zona look: Dark sunglasses, sneakers, somewhat baggy jeans, leather jackets, black t-shirts
  • For the Enrique Iglesias look: Baseball cap, tight dark jeans or leather pants, tight plain T-shirt
  • And though he does not have it, we dare you to rock the mole

How to rock it: 

We suggest you watch their music video and/or presentations to get inspired, this one is a piece-of-cake.

How can you rock this? Either blast “Bailando” the whole night or sing it the whole night. Make sure you annoy the living sh*t out of your friends.

  • A big and colorful wig
  • Sequined dress
  • High heels
  • A good spirit

How to rock it: 

There’s so many Celia Cruz looks to pick from, oh the joy! But whatever you do, you must always match –drags queens get the right idea with this iconic look.

Be spontaneous, shimmy a lot when you dance, smile at all times and don’t forget to say her iconic phrase, “Azucar!”


 9) William Levy

Be sexy on Halloween, be William Levy.

What you need:

  • Short dirty blonde wig
  • An open buttoned-up shirt with no shirt under or simply no shirt

How to rock it: 

How about being a sexy William Levy this year? Minus the love affair controversies, of course.

Unless that’s totally up your ally, we suggest having two lady friends dress up as his baby momma Elizabeth Gutierrez and his novela lover Ximena Navarrete.
