Día de los Muertos is almost here

9 Oct

Lest you forget, Día de los Muertos (November 2) is coming up in a few weeks and it’s great to see how people are getting just as excited about it as Halloween. It’s a trend we’ve been noticing here in LA for the last few years.

El otro día as I was walking down the halls of South Coast Plaza, one of the nicest malls in Southern California with a very selective crowd in a very upscale zip code, I was surprised to find a window display lleno de Dia de los Muertos decorations. Very cool!

Paper Source is the store that had these decorations and they had a few options for your altar de muertos and for your disfraz, in case you’re thinking of dressing up as a Calaca.

I had also posted something about this last year and in 2011, if you’re looking for more ideas.

Right as you enter the store, here is the display with Dia de los Muertos decor.

En caso de que no tengas quien te pinte, these face stencils seem like a good alternative to the face painting.
