What is Cinco de Mayo?
We all love dressing up and celebrating Mexican festivals. But when May 5th comes around, what are we actually celebrating?
Well, almost 200 years ago (5th of May, 1862), the outnumbered Mexican army overcame the French Empire in a great battle: the Battle of Puebla. This inspiring victory laid the foundation of the resilience behind Mexico and its people.
Now, every four years on the 5th of May, a celebration is held to commemorate the victory, but also of Mexican culture. Cinco de Mayo has become a hugely popular annual celebration that reaches dozens of countries around the world for different reasons. In the US, the event is a celebration or Mexican-American culture – hence all the parties! But it was also made very popular by the advertising campaigns from Mexican beer companies.
So, what’s this got to do with Australia? Well, for whatever reasons, Cinco de Mayo celebrations are becoming more and more popular here. This gives us a great excuse to throw a Mexican costume party and enjoy all things Mexican (including tequila!).
Mexican Costume Accessories
It’s the finishing touches that turn a Mexican costume into a full-blown character outfit. From jewellery to sugar skull masks, you can mix the right Mexican costume accessories and create a convincing persona.Make Up and Temporary tattoos
An outfit for the Day of the Dead needs the white lines of bones. Our range of quality face paint allows you to quickly get the deadly look and enjoy the festivities between worlds. And with a great range of stunning temporary tattoos, you can embrace the Day of the Dead with colourful, authentic designs.Mexican Moustaches
Thanks to Mexican stars in old Hollywood movies, moustaches are synonymous with any Man’s Mexican costume. But if you just need a moustache for one night, why spend weeks (or months) growing one. With Disguises, you can add a handy handlebar or a fancier moustache to your Mexican costume – giving it that great finishing touch.
Whether you’re heading out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo or Day of the Dead at one of the many public events held each year across Australia, going to a Mexican costume party with friends or host your own celebrations, you can look the part with a Mexican costume from Disguises.
