Don Frijole Gets New Clothes


My friend Marcelo Melison let me know that the Mexican figure I purchased for the Ventriloquist Central Collection was dressed all wrong and needed to be dressed in a Charro outfit. This prompted me to go on a quest to find Don Frijole his new outfit. I found many web sites on the net that sell Charro suits but found out they are not inexpensive. So I kept looking and I finally found this Charro suit with the original hat which was perfect for my Mexican fellow.

Here he is redressed in all his Mexican glory!! Thanks Marcela because you were correct. He looks soooo much better now!!

    Dan, I do agree with you, Don Frijoles (don’t forget the “S” at the end, please!…) looks awesome now, very classy. The suit color is just great, and the whole thing looks, as I said, very classy. Congratulations! A very unique piece indeed…
