This homemade costume for girls entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Carrie, the 'La Muerte The Book Of Life' costume creator:

My daughter loved the movie "The Book of Life" I cannot tell you how many times we watched it. She immediately wanted to be La Muerte the next year. I found a red medieval dress at TJ Maxx and then had to figure out the hat and make up. I went to the dollar store and bought a straw hat, flowers, paper straws, skeleton stickers, foam board and the border paper teachers use to decorate their classroom boards.

I cut the foam board into a large circle and then a small hole in the middle so the straw hat would fit inside. I glued them together and then glued the border paper around the edge and spray painted the entire thing. I glued silk flowers around the base of the hat. I then cut the straws to look like candles and glued them around the edge of the brim. The last thing was the flames. Those came from the orange silk flowers. I glued on pedal in each candle.
