Dia De Los Muertos Masks

A place to focus my recent obsession with the masks of Dia De Los Muertos. Male, Female, Catrinas, Catrins, Sugar Masks, history and modern interpretations, masks in flat art and sculpture, tattoos and fashion.

the Spanish language version has more/different footage than the English one

look at that detail. the colors, the imagery, the lighting, the way those hues play against each other. i’m mesmerized and can’t wait for the movie

this trailer gave me goosebumps - in a good way. i absolutely can not wait for this to arrive in theaters. the visual style is simply stunning! and the story made me want to cry and laugh at the same time. i really hope this ends up being something that not only entertains, but teaches good lessons about Dia De Los Muertos.

My Personal Tumblr - Shaky Lens

I’ve always wanted to keep this blog dedicated solely to Dia De Los Muertos and related themes, but I keep finding stuff I’m personally interested in and want to reblog, or just write about or post photos and videos from my myriad of other interests…

without further ado, my personal tumblr

uh, yeah.
das uber creepy…
I couldn’t even say it in English

those eyes are sooooo creepy!
this one sort of reminds me of Salvador Dali - the quality of the curves in the lines…

I think this is on two different people, and that is awesome.
they match, and yet each is unique. I really like the single line style of these!
