dia de los muertos

a mexican tradition, el dia de los muertos is a day for remembering the departed. families and friends head to the cemetery to visit those who are in the after life and honor them with gifts and offerings. often, the families will prepare their favorite foods and hang out at their graves. in los angeles, the hollywood cemetery celebrates this holiday and everyone is welcome to participate. i have been dying to witness this for a long time and i finally was able to make it. it just so happened that my friend venus was getting her make up professionally done, and there was one more spot open for me! i couldn't miss this opportunity and i'm excited to share these pictures with you.
