15 Celia Cruz Costumes To Give You Some Fashion Inspo

There are few Latino celebrities as iconic as Celia Cruz, so it makes sense that she would get her fair share of recognition on Halloween. It also helps that her birthday is just a couple weeks before Halloween, so take some from inspiration from the Queen of Salsa and make your life un carnaval!

If you are truly committed to being Celia Cruz, there seem to be plenty of ways to make it happen.

Sure, the mask might be a little expensive, but don’t you want to be the talk of the town?

It definitely helps that Cruz has given us so many iconic looks, including the blue dress and matching wig she wore at the Latin Grammys.

Tbh, most Cruz outfits were made by the wig. You’re welcome, Nicki Minaj.

Or how about the light blue muumuu with peacock feather?

The outfit isn’t everything, though. Make sure you practice your voice and catch phrases.

Even the kiddos look great impersonating the Cuban superstar.
