Vejigantes

$50

A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations (mainly seen in Carnival time). Traditional rainbows of the Vejigantes were black, red, white, and yellow. Today, Vejigantes wear brightly colored, ornate masks of all colors and a costume with bat-like wings. The term vejigante derives from the word vejiga (bladder) and gigantedue to custom of blowing up and painting cow bladders. The masks are often linked to mañ festivals that continue today, especially in Loíza and Ponce. 50$ each
