Fancy Dress Inspiration: Día De Los Muertos

This year I am a finalist for “Best Fashion Blog” at the Blog Awards Ireland 2018 and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it!

Fancy Dress Dia De Los Muertos

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Every year they pull out all the stops and this year looks to be no different starting with the theme, Día de los Muertos – The Day Of The Dead. For those who are unfamiliar, this is a Mexican holiday to pray for and remember loved ones who have died. The holiday became even more widely known throughout the world thanks to Disney Pixar’s 2017 animated film, Coco which won two Academy Awards.

I’ve been on the hunt for costume ideas which are in-keeping with the theme and realised this would make for a pretty cool fancy dress costume should any of you have any shindigs coming up – ooh and also – those of you with amazing make-up skills, crack out those brushes because this one is made for you, see what I mean here!
