Our altar to our loved ones, with home made sugar skulls and Oingo Boingo because who doesn't love Oingo Boingo.
sorry for the bad mirror selfies but I had no actual camera with me dress: H&M, flower crown:DIY
So for the past couple of years my mom has been taking us to the Noche de Altares festival in downtown Santa Ana to celebrate We paint our faces up at home and then walk around to all the altares and stop at the little craft shops.
these are sort of post party so my lips have worn off a bit due to eating the biggest torta i have ever eaten
And for my grand reveal, I got a really rad necklace while I was there. It was either the necklace or a wallet that was hand painted but I figured after the purchase I would have no money to put in the wallet so meh.
necklace: i'm pretty sure they were called ponk esta muerto
The colors are perfect and its 3D gaudiness is perfect and I love it. And even though I fell like two seconds into being there and scrapped up my knee it was still just as fun.
as you can see the fall ripped my sock a bit and scuffed the front of my shoe:lame
