Dia de Los Muertos A.K.A. Day of the Dead is a 3 day festival (Oct 31, Nov 1 & 2 ) where flowers, nuts, gifts, are taken to graves which are cleaned of over growth and these objects and paper/real flowers are placed as gifts of rememberance on the grave. Families tell stories remembering their departed loved and / or dress in costume as a departed loved one or paint sugar skulls on their own faces, make sugar skulls out of candy, all meant for honoring and encouraging the departed souls to visit. If you hire me to paint your sugar skull I will be very proud to paint you for this celebration. This design can be carried down the neck chest and incorporated around a costume or even full body it is entirely up to you.
