Day of the Dead Women's Costume
It's Not Over 'Til It's Over
For a true Halloween lover such as yourself, November 1 can feel like a huge let down. Suddenly, there is nothing to get dressed up for; there are no costumes to carefully construct, no faces to paint, no magic in the air. We get it (trust us, we do). But have you considered looking into the fantastic customs and spirit of the Day of the Dead celebrations? Though different from Halloween (this is important. They are not the same!), these two festive days are spent affirming life (and death), and they may just restart your engine for post-Halloween creativity, costumes, and cool new customs!
So find other celebrants, learn their intricate face-painting rituals, and wow them with this Day of the Dead Women's Costume. You can spill onto the streets with other revelers feeling a part of the action! Bonus? This celebration lasts two days! You may even find that Halloween doesn't hold a candle to the revelry and magic of the Day of the Dead.
The look of Day of the Dead costumes is beautifully eerie. Intricate dresses, like this one, accompany gorgeous (yet ghoulish) traditional skull face painting. This garment is bold red and features a bodice and skirt in patterned faux suede and padded shoulders for a super-classic look. The flared lower sleeves are made of satin, and black lace trim and rose accents decorate the neck line, sleeves, and pannier. How elegant! But that's not all. You'll also find a bejeweled black lace choker necklace, matching veil, and a crown of roses headpiece attached to a headband. We're pretty sure this exclusive look will have you saying, "What's Halloween?" faster than you used to say, "Trick or treat!"
Movin' on Up
So this year, as midnight rolls around on October 31, feel your energy begin to amp up! No longer will November 1 be a day to sit around in your PJs and eat ice cream out of a tub, mourning the loss of your favorite dress-up season. Get up, get decked out in this stunning costume, paint your face like calavera Catrina, and find new energy to celebrate what, in our humble opinion, is the coolest of all costume-lovers' holidays!
