Lucha Libre

Lucha Libre is a popular Mexican freestyle wrestling. Known for high-flying maneuvers and colorful costumes and masks. 
The tradition of Lucha Libre dates back to the end of 19th century but it became widely popular in the  60's and 70's when Luchadores starred as superheroes in the movies. Today this wrestling is still widely practiced in Mexico and US. 

The wrestlers wear bright and flashy costumes together with bizarre masks. Historically the masks were made of leather and looked rather discreet. Today the masks are made of all possible available colorful, shiny and extravagant textiles.
