Gauchos, Guajiros & Vaqueros

All are regional variances of the Latin American cowboy, not unlike their North American counterpart, of which I am currently dressed as right now. It's good that my first entry happens to be on my favorite holiday of the year, as usually, I am rushing to put last minute embellishments on my super-awesome costume in the US. Since Halloween is rather low key in Argentina, all you really need to do is make the effort and you're "participating." This is why my Cowboy hat and western shirt shall suffice.

Anyways, I'm about to brave torrential downpours in Buenos Aires to muck about with a few of my paisanos, but cowboys are cowboys, rain sleet or snow and I wouldn't be doing my costume justice if I let the weather dictate when to go out.
