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.

WOW……Outstanding Solo Performance

forgve fatherAs  I was looking for things to read online, I came across a small announcement about Latino actors receiving recognition for their artistic work. I began reading the list, I was shocked by one name. Jose Roldan Jr. Imagine my surprise to see that my prom king is getting an award for his outstanding solo performance in Father Forgive Me For I have Sinned from the Hispanic Organization of Latino Actors. I have yet to see his show because I still have no roof on my house since the hurricane and I want to fix my house, but it makes me proud to know my fellow high school classmates are making it big in their careers. Of course the biggest act to come out of our high school has been Aventura (so nasty…lol), but Jose is making a huge name for himself and I cant’ wait for his new projects soon to come.

jrjIf you would like to catch his performance, there is one scheduled for November at Lehman College in the Bronx. With this new award, tickets are bound to sell out quickly, so make sure you make your reservations today before it’s too late.
