Day 31 - Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos)

This is one of my absolute favourite costumes, which is why I saved it for last. And I am so happy with how the make up turned out, because I wasn't sure I could pull it off without practising. This one is not so much about the costume, but more about the make up, and to get the look right I watched A LOT of youtube videos. There wasn't any particular one I followed to get this look, but just took ideas and bits and pieces from all of them. If you search day of the dead or sugar skull on Youtube you will get heaps of make up tutorials. Put the make up together with a long skirt, some lacy shawls and a headband adorned with flowers, and you've got the whole costume.
To see my inspiration for this costume, check out my Day of the Dead board on Pinterest.
