    Dia de Los Muertos/Day of The Dead halloween costume and makeup

    So I just came up with an (imo) awesome halloween costume idea
    I plan on painting my face like something similar to this

    (pardon the Sylvia Ji, I can't really find any other examples of Dia de Los Muertos face paintings :[)

    The only problem is, I don't exactly know what to wear?
    Anybody got any suggestions or even more inspo pics for the face painting?
    any help is appreciated
    What do you guys think of this idea?

    I love your idea. Dia de Los Muertos is one of my favs. My next tattoo is going to be a Dia de Los Muertos theme.

    Omg, I so wanna paint my face Dia de Los Muertos style for fun (but I don't want to take your idea).

    Personally, I like the "up" side of day of the dead (like pretty skulls). Very vibrant colors, glitter, flowers, etc.
    Sylvia Ji has some amazing artwork (it's like pin-up inspired). Clothing wise... maybe the traditional clothing (large flowy dance dress). But I'm not sure.

    I loveeee that painting so much! I have a Sylvia Ji painting as a tattoo, I love it to bits & pieces. They are all so beautiful. I think that would be a wonderful costume idea! I'd go with clothing similar to that in the painting, flowy dress with flowers & whatnot!

    That Sylvia Ji painting is gorgeous, so is that facechart!

    I'd recommend probably going to a thrift store and getting an old wedding dress or something. Spice it up with lots of flowers and skulls.
