Why trick-or-treat for candy when you can trick-or-treat for chocolate cake?

Aaron Cordero, a 6-year-old San Antonian, dressed up as Gabriel Iglesias for Halloween and his costume is seriously spot on. With a Hawaiian shirt, jean shorts, tennis shoes and a chocolate cake in hand, Aaron is serving up the perfect get-up to pass as a mini Fluffy. And the goatee is the cherry on top, or shall we say — the icing on the cake.

The inspiration for the Halloween costume came from the family watching the comedian's Netflix specials, making Aaron a big fan.

Brenda Cordero, his mother, said her son either wanted to be a zombie or Fluffy, and decided to pay tribute to Iglesias after not finding a zombie costume at stores. Instead, she shopped around for the clothes and made the cake and microphone out of Styrofoam.

"He's very happy to be Fluffy," Brenda said.

We're sure Fluffy himself would be amused by the impersonation.
