So this is my Dia de los Muertos 2010 mask. I bought a simple fabric mask from Michael's cut it to shape my face better and designed my own pattern to paint on it. There are 15 red dots on the brow for the 15 people i've known that passed away, the middle and end ones are for my dad, brother, and grandpa and are the biggest to show their roles in my life. This was a really fun way to be festive without painting my entire face (because it upsets my skin). so here it is, and thanks for looking.

Awesome mask, particularly how it coordinates with face paint. I really love this idea. I love the dots too, very sweet. Smiley

I love this idea, what a great way to have the intricate sugar skull look without all that makeup! Great job!
