Description

This is my version of Catrina. I’m mexican and we don’t usually mix halloween and Day of the Dead, but this mexican tradition is gaining popularity around the world, and people seem to love it as I do, I wanted to share this with you.

I couldn’t get a better photo, my battery died and time is almost over, so… I hope I can get a new set soon.

Happy Halloween :)

    Your costume shows originality, spookiness, and lovely sewing skills. There is no Vote button on this page. Your costume is so worthy of a prize that I will spend the time to go through the slides one at a time until I find you. Ever since my son died I have celebrated Day of the Dead. It is a wonderful way to replace the sadness of his loss with the moments of his life.

      Thank you!, the mask and ribs I made them with plaster bandages, newspaper and glue.
