Dia de los Muertos Exhibit @ the Tanglewood Bunneh Hutch, Caledon

Blood-draining vampires, brain-eating zombies, body-snatching ghosts..why can't the undead be more like the calaveras? They just want to come back to enjoy the good things in life for one holiday..drink, smoke, dance, decorate..

An interesting fact: archaeologists have found murals in Aztec temples that may explain the origin of the calavera.. Not only did the Aztec priests make live human sacrifices, but they apparently turned the skeletons into marionettes that beat drums and shook gourds and bells for ceremonial plays!

Ooh, that's right, I *did* pick up that lovely set of skins...

Hmm, if I'm allowed in today, I may have a costume idea...
