I used to think that Dia De Los Muertos was like our Halloween. After reading an article about it, I now see that I am wrong, and that it's a spirtual holiday, where family members pray for their deceased relatives.
There was nothing mentioned about parties or dancing. If you know about this holiday personally, I'd love to hear about your experiences.

Without the prior knowledge, I decided to create Rosa.





Tell me what you think of her!

Thanks! There's a little story about why I did her skirt in polka dots. Flamenco dancers often wear polka dots to represent the holes in the Gypsie's clothing. The color of the under-skirt would peek through. Just a cute little factoid. Her shoes are also designed after Flamenco shoes.
