Show Your Puerto Rican Pride This Halloween with a Vejigante Costume!

It is rare to find costumes that represent the Puerto Rican culture, but I have found a Vejigante costume for both adults and kids! What is a vejigante you say? The history of the vejigante goes back to medieval Spain, when St. James defeated the Moors, and masks with horns wore worn representing the defeated infidels. Over the years, the Puerto Rican natives used the vejigantes as a symbol of patriotism and self identity, and it is now deep rooted in Puerto Rican culture, especially in places like Ponce and Loiza. A Puerto Rican even celebrating our history and culture is never complete without the vejigantes.

The costume is customizable and made to order. First you pick the colors you want for your mask. Here is an example of masks:

Then you pick your costume, you can get more elaborate ones, for an extra charge.

All costumes are custom made, orders need to be placed with sufficient time, in order to ensure completion and delivery before Halloween. Make sure you check out the other products Isla Online has to offer, straight from Puerto Rico.

Choose Between Two Options

Vampire Disco

Inspired by the sexy costumes that materialize in Halloween shops every October, the shopkeepers at Vampire Disco opened an online boutique that stocks similarly sultry apparel and dresses all year long. In the summer, their bikinis blend allure with trend-aware fashion, and their collections of lingerie and shoes stay in-season no matter the month. The team is particularly proud of the shop’s line of corsets; though their styles range from vintage to modern, each one is as alluring as a brassiere made of donuts.
