Dia de los Muertos

These pretty girls wear Sugar Skull makeup and flowers in their hair for Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. During this traditional Mexican holiday, celebrated on November 1st and 2nd, family and friends gather together to remember loved ones who have passed away. They build beautiful altars and decorate them with candles, flowers, traditional food, sugar skulls and folk art. Women and children often wear flowers, especially marigolds, in their hair and paint their faces to look like a skull. These hand-drawn, maker and ink illustrations were inspired by this colorful tradition.
