Mexican Costume Ideas at Disguises

Been invited to a Mexican themed costume party and have no idea what to wear? Disguises has you covered with an extensive range of Mexican costumes and accessories available to buy or hire. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican celebration that takes place on the 5th May each year. It commemorates the victory of the outnumbered Mexican forces over the invading forces of Napoleon III in the Battle of Puebla way back in 1862 and it’s becoming an increasingly popular annual celebration around the world with millions of people dressing up in their best Mexican costumes and getting into the spirit of the occasion. Interestingly, while the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla offered hope and pride to the Mexican army, it didn’t win them the war and Mexico’s army was ultimately driven from Mexico City where Napoleon III installed an Austrian as the New Mexican Emperor. Things didn’t go too well for the new emperor though because he was later executed with the fall of the occupation in 1867. Ok, so what’s that got to do with Australians or fancy dress we hear you asking? It’s fairly well documented that this comparatively minor Mexican holiday has, in recent years, become very popular in the USA because many of the large American beer companies saw an opportunity to promote and sell their Mexican beer brands by connecting with the American Hispanic community and encouraging Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Consequently, Cinco de Mayo celebrations are also becoming more and more popular in Australia because it’s a great reason to throw a Mexican fancy dress party and enjoy all things, Mexican. It’s the time to bust out your sombrero, sandals and Mexican mustache and enjoy a night of salsa and spice washed down with a few beers stuffed with limes and maybe a few tequilas too! Whether you decide to head out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at one of the many public events held each year across Australia, go to a Mexican fancy dress party with friends or host your own celebrations, you will most probably want to look the part. At Disguises we have a great range of Mexican costumes to hire or buy and all the accessories you need to be authentically Mexican for the night.
