Selena
Ok, this costume isn't exactly exclusive to San Antonians, but there's so much love here, we think it'd take a certain type of fan to pull this off. Respect the red lips and bustier, and do it right or don't do it at all.

The Donkey Lady
Some say she’s the product of a fire that left her horribly disfigured, others say that she was a donkey herder drowned by angry men. Now like a spinster at a Halloween party, she stalks those who stay on Donkey Lady Bridge, located off of Applewhite Road on the south side, and is a staple to San Antonio's ghost stories.

Trump Piñata
Piñatas made in the Republican nominee’s likeness became popular last summer, after Mexican artist Dalton Javier Avalos Ramirez of Piñateria Ramirez made one in response to Trump’s comments that Mexican immigrants were bringing “drugs” and “crime” across the border and were “rapists.” By the time Trump made his first visit in San Antonio, piñata merchants in San Antonio couldn't keep them on the shelves. Wonder why...
