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

A word from Heather, the 'Day of the Dead' costume creator:

My husband and I decided on Day of the Dead this year . Both costumes are custom created by myself . The sugar skull makeup is all hand painted including my chest and arms . The make up for these costumes took quite some time ! It took about an hour for the man and about 3 hours for myself ( the woman ) Each arm took about an hour to hand paint . I did the painting myself , and I'm thrilled with the results . My hint for face painting is to always plan your design in advance and use a liner pencil to sketch in out on the face before you begin . Happy Halloween !
