Dear Starbucks Legal Team:
I made this upcycled creation for my sister, who ordered Starbucks coffee by mail even before there were stores everywhere.  And she's a Dia de los Muertos fan, so, you see, I HAD to.  

And it was for her birthday.  And she LOVES it.

So please don't send your goons to cut off my caffiene supply and/or fingers.

You may note that though a few things are a bit off-brand, the mini-Frappuccinos turned out fairly well and to add some realism, the lovely couple at the table is perusing her iPhone & his iPad.  Also, the drive-thru sign in the back notes requests customers to "Please Pull Forward If You Require Assistance Due to Being Dead."

Did you notice the auto has "suicide doors?" And that the lighting system control & battery pack (a small string of floral wreath lights) has been transformed into the drive-thru speaker stand.

Sadly, the barrista has spilled some coffee as it is difficult to be coordinated without a nervous system.

I know that your stores in my area do not allow dogs inside, but the one in the diorama is a service dog for the dead.  A dead service dog, of course.  It is probably hard to see that it's mistress is smoking a tiny cigarette, but no studies have proven that smoking is harmful once you're dead.
