A Seahawks fan costume that truly dazzles

A Seahawks fan costume that truly dazzles

Has there ever been a more eye-catching, more intricately designed, more celebratory Seahawks costume than the one Efren De Jesus showed off last Friday in Renton?

When the Seahawks won the Super Bowl, De Jesus and a friend sketched out the design and called family members in the Mexican state of Morelos.

"They said 'Can you make us a Seahawks costume?'", remembers his son Efren De Jesus, Jr. "They sent a picture of how they wanted it and they made and it then they shipped it to our house."

In Morelos, celebrating carnival is an art form. Costumes are elaborate and can cost well over $500. Do we have Seahawks fans in Mexico?

"No. No," says the senior De Jesus. "Not really".

But De Jesus is a big fan and a huge attraction wherever he goes. It's hard work dancing in the heavy costume but so much fun to celebrate with other fans.

His son hopes someday it will be his turn to wear the costume.
