My oldest daughter (who is 10) is dressing up as a Dia de Los Muertos Bride for Halloween.
I thought I'd share how we are going to put the costume together-
because it's a really easy idea, and I think the result will be great!
It's kind of a...pretty/scary costume!
Really, the only things I have made were the head piece and bouquet. I will also be painting her face. Everything else we already had.
The dress came from my Grandma (the shawl too). It's a mexican wedding dress with really pretty embroidery, but I think any black dress would work.
For the head piece, we bought flowers at the dollar store and sewed them to a piece of elastic.
We also bought a bouquet of red roses at the dollar store for her to carry.
For her makeup,
I will be using these sugar skull makeup examples as inspiration:
You have a super cool, dead bride costume!
I can't wait to share the picture of how it actually turns out!
