|During the Carnival season, the people of Ponce dress as
"Vejigantes" and take to the streets in celebration. The
costumes can range from very elaborate to simple - all determined by the
number and type of ruffles on the main body of the costume and the cape.
Shown here is a typical costume made from a single color of fabric and
a single color of ruffles. From the back views shown below, you get
a good idea of how the cape is ruffled and its length.
These costumes are available by special order (you decide the colors)
or according to what our supplier has in stock. (During Carnival
season itself, it is very difficult to get a costume on short notice!) If
you have doubts or concerns, please call us as we can help you with
sizing and special orders. 787-722-5188 or 800-575-4752
The most important measurement is from the crotch to the shoulder, so
if the person you are ordering for is over 5' tall, order an ADULT
LARGE. If the person is 4'-5' tall order an Adult MEDIUM. If
the wearer is a child about 3-4' tall - order a CHILD LARGE. If the
wear is to be a child under 3' tall, order a CHILD SMALL.
The costumes are sold separately from the wearable masks. To see
what we have in stock or to special order a mask of particular colors, please
