Don’t forget your black nerd wig and Accoutrements pencil thin mustache set – they’ll totally complete the outfit.

Don’t worry if you don’t have Pedro’s iconic pencil thin mustache or his wavy black hair. A mustache kit and black wig will do the trick. If you really want to impress the crowd, wear a “vote for me” mini button – you can even bring some extras to hand out. If you find someone to cosplay as Napoleon Dynamite with you, make sure they wear a “Vote for Pedro” t-shirt. Check out these Pedro Sanchez cosplayers for inspiration for your look.
Pedro Sanchez came to Preston, Idaho, as an exchange student from Mexico. New to town, Pedro befriended Napoleon, and the two quickly became best friends. Pedro is very quiet, and he rarely shows emotion. After being rejected by Summer Wheatley when he asked her to the school dance, Pedro asked Deb Bradshaw, who said yes. This caused a rift between him and Napoleon, who also wanted to go to the dance with Deb.
Pedro decided to run for class president on a whim. With the help of Napoleon, Deb, and his cousins, Pedro was able to rally support for his candidacy among his peers at school. However, when it came time for Pedro to make a closing argument for his run, he couldn’t think of anything to say. Napoleon saved the day by performing a dance number in place of Pedro’s speech, and Pedro went on to become class president.
