{ dia } de los muertos

{ photos by zooey grossman, who coincidentally shot me for THIS and THIS }

for me, the halloween festivities are kicking off this evening. i’m planning to channel this planet blue shoot and throw together a glammed-up dia de los muertos situation. somehow, i suspect i still won’t be able to top THIS PAST COSTUME. ah well, what are you going to be??

    I cannot wait to see your makeup!
    I'm dressing it down this year, and using my boy-short hair and petite frame to my advantage. I make an awesome Justin Bieber. ;)

    I'm going to be your typical "sexy cat girl." It was a last minute decision so of course all the GOOD costumes are gone. So i just settled for some black cat ears…and i'll dress up my outfit with some sexy black boots.

    Can't wait to see what you do this year. I'll be waiting for pics!!

    Love these photos, the make up is brilliant! I'm going as Quorra from Tron, even found the light up EL Wire to stitch into my costume!

    The mexican día de los muertos is aesthetically perfect. The best mix of creepy and funny. Love it!

    The plastic surgery victim was sick, in the best possible way! Based on that awesomeness I have no doubt you'll kill it this year. The make-up is amazing!

    Great photos! But a little bit scary too ;)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08604726178756861735 Islandia Lane

    This is my exact costume idea as well! Maybe not so glammed up for me but more like the enchanted skull with lots of color and glitter. I am so excited to do my makeup!! Can't wait to see how yours turns out :-)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/02756585515065845268 Aubrey and Melissa

    Wow that make up is insane! Can't wait to see yours.

    This does nothing to teach about Dia de los muertos and only serves to exploit a culture. They are a culture, not a costume. Unless you celebrate dia de los muertos, you do NOT and should NOT wear the makeup.

    Way to dilute a part of a beautiful culture!
    Oh should I mention the lack of creativity?
    All for the sake of "fashion" and tacky trends…

    I was a "Sugar Skull" from Dia De los Muertos for the past two nights! It was such an awesome costume, and I got tons of comments on it. Enjoy your Halloween!

    That is incredibly racist. It doesn't matter if other fashion blogs and magazines perpetuate it, it's insensitive and disrespectful to Mexican culture.

    And now you've encouraged many of your followers and readers to do the the same and appropriate a culture that isn't theirs so they can feel "exotic" and "foreign" one day of the year. Good job.

    This make up is inspired on Silvia Ji's Day of the Death collection. I have two of her paintings, she's amaizing. Great work!

    hey babe! so flattered you were inspired! we are so interested in this culture and celebration, we wanted to show what an inspiration it is to us. the mexican culture runs through many of us here, and we love it! thank you to those who commented and understood it as beauty more than fashion.

    with love and respect,
