Dress like Abuelita from Coco;

Abuelita is always dressed in her traditional Mexican dress. You can easily find a similar style at a local costume or thrift store, or even create your own with a brightly colored maxi skirt and blouse. Add some lace or ruffles for extra flair.

Abuelita's hair is always styled in a tight bun. If you have long hair, simply put it up in a bun and secure with bobby pins. If you have short hair, you can try using a wig or hair extension.

To really bring the costume together, add some finishing touches! Abuelita is never seen without her pearls, so make sure to wear a strand around your neck. You can also add some gold earrings, a fan, and a basket filled with bread (for those who need a snack).
