For all who love and celebrate Dia de Los Muertos - Some images from my annual Ofrenda at the Dia de Los Muertos Exhibition that I participate in - this must be the 12th year now.

My costume headdress - I finally started doing selfies.

What I love so much about this observance is the connection that it brings to all those who have passed through your life and your loved ones.

For instance - on my last visit to my sister she gave me a small bag with some scarves that my mom used. These scarves even still had the fragrance of her perfume and these are two of the ones I used for my headdress and two others were used on the ballet costume for Carmelita. The top I am wearing is my mom's blouse which I converted into my costume. Every item that I use on my ofrenda is directly related to the people with the exception of David Bowie and Andy Hallett. But even these two are people who touched my life in important ways.

You can't see them but I also made a set of earrings and necklaces.
