Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) – San Francicso, CA

If you are ever in San Francisco for Day of the Dead, then you must go to the celebration in the Mission. It was crazy! We took it upon ourselves to make homemade skeleton masks to wear to the gathering. We purchased some plaster bandages and a styrofoam head from a store in Haight Ashbury and before we knew it we were neck deep into to the best art project ever. Huge shoutout to the head artist, Ruel, who coached Lizzy and I as we attempted to use any artistic skills we might have on these masks. The masks turned out absolutely amazing and were a hit at the celebration. We were stopped several times as we were marching down the street so people could take our pictures. It was awesome!

  1. Great pictures! I was almost living among the dead after my fall down the entire flight of our basement stairs last night -- and I have the bruises to prove it!
