According to my site statistics, I’ve been getting a lot of people referred to the site after searching Chilindrina costume. I find this funny since I’ve never posted any photos of such a costume or even mentioned it on here.
Of all the costumes to search for, this one should be pretty easy (and inexpensive) to put together. I even wrote a haiku about it:
Pigtails, freckles, sweater, dress
Originally published in Puro Pedo Magazine’s February issue along with several other Chicano haiku.
I forgot to include the glasses, bloomers and sneakers, but you get the gist. Dressing up as La Chilindrina for Halloween or any costume party seems to work best as a group or couples costume. After all, la Childindrina without el Chavo del 8, Kiko and crew is just kinda sad.
Next up in the low-budget costume series: Frida Kahlo.
