La Calaca

For this month's site contest, I wanted to make an homage to my grandmother's traditions by celebrating Día de los Muertos (also called Día de Muertos). My avatar is dressed as a calaca, the decorated skeletons that my abuelita loves to collect and display. (She's even passed some down to me!)



Her head is crowned with marigolds, which are used to decorate altars during this holiday, and she has painted around her eye sockets like a sugar skull.

Heck yes, Dia de los Muertos love! I'm glad it's been getting more attention as of late, as I've felt a kind of disconnect from the culture of my father's family growing up where I did. (When I was 1 we moved here and no one knew what a pinata was. Seriously. We had to bring it from Texas.) With Mexican culture finally getting represented in loving and positive ways, I finally feel like I have something super personal I can latch onto in pop culture.

Ahem, now we talk about this amazing avatar....um...well, it's amazing.It couldn't be more perfect! I've already commented on your avatar before but I can't stress enough how much I love it. Good job!

Ahh [@Amarayne] that makes me so happy to hear! I feel the same way about the increased representation :)

A birthday party without piñatas?! The horror!!!! I'm glad you could at least import them!
