Miss Face Of Beauty Puerto Rico 2015.
The representative of Puerto Rico in Miss Face Of Beauty , Neilymarie Lozada Soto participated in the activities dedicated to the Virgen del Carmen , the traditional walk of the Virgin along the coasts of the country. Our queen shared with Pedro Perluisi , Puerto Rico Resident Commissioner and the Mayor of the city of Aguadilla Carlos Mendez ,
they could not miss the traditional Vejigantes .
A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations (mainly se...en 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 gigante (giant), due 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.
