Costumes from El Salvador.

I wanted to share some of the hand crafted ensembles

my friends and family wore during Costume Parties or Holidays.

We did not have Halloween growing up in El Salvador…

Lovely Newspaper Girls and Indito Salvadorenio.

Fonchito, Carolina y Maria Elena que lindos se ven!

“La Batichica” looks super!

Lorena siempre la reina de la fiesta!

Lovely Tia Mery what a dress!

…..and Estela as a “Majorette”.

Que preciosa mi tia! y Estela se ve chivisima!

More “inditos”, my cousins celebrating “Dia de la Virgen de Guadalupe”.

Primos ustedes se ven igualitos que sus hijos en esta foto tan colorida!

and this last one…..probably around 1972…

my friend Humberto with a “Lederhosen” costume and me as a “Raggedy Doll”.

Que coqueto vos!

Have a great weekend!

and don’t forget to check back later to see Bela’s costume.
