Day 259: Mexican

Day 259: Mexican

Today I have a birthday party that is Mexican themed, so I thought ‘what would be funnier than to attend as a chola?’. For those who don’t know, a chola is a female of Latin decent that is one of the ‘homies’ and usually wears heavy eyeliner, dark lined lipstick and a bandanna. I think I pull it off ALMOST too well.

Day 257: Be the Song Title

Day 257: Be the Song Title

Today I am taking on the user-suggested theme of “Be the song title” from Dean. The song title I have chosen to create is “La Cucaracha” dressing as a cockroach with a Mexican hat. A big thanks goes to @_MartyPants for the concept and letting me borrow his cockroach costume.

Day 127: Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico. It is celebrated on the 1st of Novemnber and persons paint their faces as skulls and wear flowers in their hair, which is what I’ve done.
