From October 31 to November 2, Mexico celebrates one of its most historically and culturally important events, Día de los Muertos (aka Día de Muertos or Day of the Dead). This three-day affair is held to honor those who have died. People across the country commemorate the fête in different ways, but it generally revolves around an altar that’s filled with food, stylized skeletons, and other offerings.
In addition to the shrine, many folks choose to dress as Calaveras, or sugar skulls, to celebrate the holiday. They go all out in their dress to create elaborate costumes you won’t soon forget. And the headdresses are spectacular!
Below are some of our favorite Day of the Dead costumes/headdresses that we have seen online.
