If you’re anything like us, we’re notorious for coming up with last-minute costumes porque we’re lazy. With only a week before Phoenix Comicon (called that a time), we wanted to create a costume that connected with our Mexican culture and love for Disney. We combined our favorite game growing up Loteria and Disney’s Little Mermaid to help you create your own card costume for under $10.
Also, what better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month than creating a costume that reflects your culture, right?
- 2 whiteboards (36″x40″) – $3 each at Hobby Lobby
- Gorilla glue -$3
- Acrylic paints -$1 or less each
- Paintbrushes – $2
- Painter sticks (free at Walmart or Home Depot)
(watch YouTube video above)
Pro-tip: If you don’t have strong drawing skills (like me), find someone who does or you can project the image on the board and trace it from there.

My Little Mermaid-La Sirena cosplay mashup for @phoenixcomicon yesterday. I had to combine my Mexicano culture with my love for Disney. I felt like a sea reina 🙂 👑 👑 👑 #LaSirena #Littlemermaid #loteria #cosplay #phxcc #phoenixcomicon #phoenix #igersphx #mexicana #chicana #chicano #mexican #culture #phoenix #az #youtube #youtuber #sirena #card #cosplayer #comicon #comiccon #phoenixcomicon2017 #phxcc2017 #disney #disneycosplay #remezclaween #thefilthymermaid
I wear this costume once a year to Phoenix Fan Fusion because it’s a crowd-pleaser.
If you’re in the Phoenix area and want to buy the “Chalupa” card, let us know. Email us at email@example.com
Loteria costumes to inspire you!
There are so many cards to choose from, but you always put your own twist on the card. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?! Happy creating!
