Dia de los Muertos Costume

Posted by Heather RichmondPosted ago

This is my hand-designed, created and painted day of the dead costume. I wore a red corset and steam punk style skirt with a lace saw and black wig and accessorized with roses. I hand-painted my face chest and arms which took over 4 hours. I hand-painted my baby doll to coordinate with me and my face paint. I dyed her hair black to match mine and swaddled her in black lace to coordinate with my costume. My husband wore all black with a brocade vest and red silk tie. I hand-painted his face and head which took about 1.5 hours. I included roses under his hat on his head for a secret touch. Our costumes took hours to design and create. I hope you enjoy and appreciate the detail in the artwork! I painted roses and rosary beads on my face and the baby face all to add to the authenticity of the design!
