Latin America Christmas Party Costume

Since I really fell in love with our group’s costume during our Christmas party this year, am sharing it now for everyone to see. :-)

The theme of our organization’s party was Latin America and since our group do not want to end up wearing bare-all showgirls’ costumes, we researched very well the alternatives to wearing ponchos, skimpy outfits, and fruity headdress.

We ended up loving the Peruvian look! Peru traditional costumes are very colorful and with brightly colored and Aztec-designed embroideries. So, here we go… Our Peruvian-styled costumes!
