This Halloween, Garcia went as legendary singer Selena Quintanilla.

"Selena has always being a huge inspiration to the Latino population and even in our household," she told BuzzFeed News. "I grew up listening to her and looked up to her for being so talented, motivated, and dedicated."

She asked her mom, Maria Luisa Garcia, to make the costume for her. "I knew [my mom] would be able to do it because she has mad skills," she said.

It took her mom five days and, according to her son's tweet, 50 cents to make the costume.
