Kingston University (UK) Product and Furniture Design students Milo and Hannah conducted a controlled experiment to see if a motorized remote-controlled Dia de los Muertos sugar skull that also blows bubbles could drum up more business for a local burrito stand, Mighty Burrito & Co. You won’t believe what happened next! (Día De Las Burbujas = Day of the Bubbles.)
Nicaraguan-born Chicago artist and printmaker Carlos Barberena mixes up traditional calacas and current events. Wall Street, Mickey Mouse, McDonalds, Halliburton, British Petroleum and other icons look better as muertos, don’t you think?
With everybody and her tio dressing up for Halloween and Dia de los Muertos, it’s important to stand out from the crowd with a bold fashion-forward statement. For some stylish chipsters, that means a calavera-themed fez.
Lucky for us, that’s exactly what our ‘chuco suave model, Pablo from the Internets, is wearing! Pablo’s embroidered velvet chapeau is a new Fall style from San Diego’s Fez-o-rama.com. You don’t just wear a fez, pochos. A fez wears you.
