The Abuelita costume is perfect for anyone who loves the Disney Pixar movie, Coco. She is one of the supporting characters in the film.

Abuelita is the grandmother of Miguel Rivera. Miguel has been learning guitar in secret. He wants to become a musician, but music is banned where he comes from.

When Abuelita finds out what he has been doing, she breaks his guitar. Just like her own grandmother, Abuelita is very strict about the ban that the family has put on music.

It turns out that the reason that the family has banned music is because of a sad and difficult history. Throughout the movie, they move past this, and music eventually comes back into her life.

You’ll Need:

  1. Red Plaid Apron
  2. Short Sleeve Floral Dress
  3. Brown Sandals
  4. Old Lady Wig
