1."Tequila Pop Dude"
The costume comes with eight (eight!) shot glasses and a sombrero with the word "Tequila" on the front. Nice. And by nice, I mean, good job at reinforcing old, tired stereotypes, Party City.
Ah, yes. The "Latin Dancer," aka "The Lady in the Tutti Frutti" hat, popularized by Carmen Miranda in the 1940s and '50s. Miranda got shit for perpetuating harmful stereotypes about Brazilians and other Latinos even back then, so maybe that should be a sign that it doesn't make any sense now.
3."Day of the Dead Señorita"
Día de los Muertos and Halloween aren't related in any way, and unlike the latter holiday, Day of the Dead has retained a lot of its spiritual and religious roots. In other words, for millions of people, the holiday is not just about dressing up and eating candy, and to pretend otherwise is insulting.
4."Hey Amigo Mexican"
Yes, that's what this costume is really called, and no, I'm not even going to dignify this one with an explanation of why it's offensive.
5."Sexy Shooter Girl"
It's not like Latinas aren't hyper-sexualized enough in this country, am I right?
6."Mayan Costume Adult Aztec Queen Indian Mexican Halloween Fancy Dress"
PSA: The Mayan and Aztec civilizations were two distinct cultures that covered different time periods, languages, and geographic regions.
Because it's HILARIOUS to be an undocumented immigrant in this country right now. After all, everybody knows they're nothing but "rapists and criminals." /sarcasm
If you wouldn't let your child go out dressed as a Nazi, don't let him go trick-or-treating in this offensive costume.
Women mariachis have long struggled to achieve mainstream acceptance in the industry, and still struggle to do so today, so reducing women who challenge the status quo down to a sexy costume isn't really funny.
10."Sexy Border Patrol Agent"
Immigration is an issue in the U.S. that affects millions of people (and not just Latinos, though the issue is often framed as a "Latino issue" in the media). Considering the inflammatory political rhetoric surrounding immigrants and immigration right now, this costume is outrageously offensive.
