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.
