“Alright, I'm gonna do this once. I've never had a daughter, I've never had a kid of my own, so I'm gonna go full-blown on this one,'" he continued. "And I did." A coming-of-age celebration has taken a new twist. Comedian Gabriel Iglesias, 46, threw a 100 K quinceanera for his beloved pooch named Risa. This article reports that the event included a band, DJ, and performers.
Iglesias, also known as fluffy said that he wanted to express his gratitude for the many years of happiness that his chihuahua has given him. Having had no daughter, or any kid for that matter, fluffy said Risa has enriched his life. He spared no cost in showing this appreciation.
Fluffy had three custom-made dresses for Risa as well as a special carried in which she was wheeled in. “Guests feasted on al pastor mini trompos, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, carnitas, corn on the cob, and an aguas frescas station, among other selections. “
This article explains that a quinceanera is “Widely celebrated among Latinos, the quinceañera marks an important milestone in a girl’s life. Part birthday party, part rite of passage, it symbolizes a girl’s entrance into womanhood when turning 15, traditionally showcasing her purity and readiness for marriage.”
Things are changing, however, with the celebration becoming more Americanized. The church has been relegated to an auxiliary role with most celebrations projecting status. A typical quinceanera costs at least $15 thousand. Dresses retail from around $300 to $900 or as much as one can afford.
What do you think? Did Fluffy go overboard? How much would you spend on your pet and under what circumstances?
