Calaveras - Day of the Dead


Halloween approaches, this we know. On its heels a lesser known holiday follows, Day of the Dead, a celebration with many thousands of years in its history. The Day of the Dead is a Mexican and Central-American tradition, celebrated between All Saint’s Day (November 1st) and All Souls’ Day (Nov 2nd). Cerridwen's Cauldron has an exhibit rich in color and detail honoring the tradition.


My typist has spent time in Mexico, visiting areas such as Patzcuaro, a town with a long history of Day of the Dead celebrations. Sugar skulls (calaveras) and other seemingly odd decorations abound. Skeletons sit happily on chairs and benches watching the merriment.


My new release necklace from lassitude & ennui fits this holiday theme perfectly. The mesh sugarskull necklace is color change by hud; choose tones for skull, cord and decorative bead. I picked copper to coordinate with my free rust jumpsuit from Spirt Land.


These pretty Fall Olivia Boot with leaf motif are from Baby Monkey and come with a texture change hud that lets you pick from a large variety of colors. They are both sleek and stylish and would look just as great with a soft and comfy sweater and some well used jeans.
