Dia de los Muertos

It has bugged me no end that both times I have attempted a Dia de los Muertos costume, I have messed it up/not done it justice, and that's usually because I have attempted it when already drunk. Which sucks. Especially as the imagery and meaning is one of my biggest passions.

So, I think I may have finally done the festival and it's imagery, and myself, justice... Well, I was pretty pleased with it :)

It took well over an hour and I found the detail around the eyes the most tricky, but I found these two videos very helpful, should you wish to try it yourself... (and I didn't use ANY of the swanky make-up they used, hehe)
