Ahhh Mandy I think you can read my mind!! Was just texting my boyfriend saying I want to go Day of the Dead style to a halloween party and need to get face paint.. and tada this post popped up! So amazing.

Will put the 'How to' in to practice and see how it goes.

Hope you're well my love, always thinking of you Xx

It's funny how all the models used for these ethnic shoots are usually and typically, white. Last time I checked there were plenty of beautiful ETHNIC girls who could have played the role far better. But I guess then it wouldn't be as cool as seeing some lithe white girl with blank soulless eyes trying her darndest to convey some sort of authenticity. Consumers continue sopping it up as if it's the greatest thing. It's rather disappointing to see this promoted so heavily in blogs now as well. Seeing white girls ripping on every bit of world culture with their proverbial dream catcher is exhausting and annoying, but it's disturbing seeing editorial after editorial with obvious influences from various world cultures, always modeled by white girls.

Please think of the very cultures that you're ripping from. Do you treat the people from these cultures with the same regard and adulation? Really, do you? Or are they dismissed as easily as a trend of the past? Food for thought.

Definitely the handy work of Ashley Glorioso.

I'm Canadian, and have celebrated Halloween my whole life. Last year I lived in Aus, and was so sad not to celebrate halloween. This year I'm living in South Africa, and they don't celebrate it here either. Boo!

Jo said...

great dresses, great accessories, I love it.

as for the lengthy anonymous comment criticising this type of thing, I thing we're all being a little too PC when it comes to this type of stuff, this shoot isn't trying to make a statement I think, it's simply playing on an inspiration, just like a menswear inspired outfit for a woman isn't bought entirely in the men's section. but I guess it's easy to say just about anything under the guise of anonimity.

Amazing pictures! :-)

These are awesome, and it's such a perfectly simple Halloween costume. I wish I'd thought of it this year, but no, I'm taking way too much time constructing a unicorn horn. Hrumph!

I adore all of the make-up, especially that first shot of the face - creepy but in freakishly good way <3

kittenmasks said...

Yay, cultural appropriation! I fucking love this shoot - it's almost as good as when Vogue Italia did blackface, except this is so much more less offensive because it's about religion, right, and not racial features? Planet Blue is always so inspiring.

Dia de los Muertos has nothing to do with Halloween, folks. Educate yourselves:


Carolina Sundell said...

Wow! Thank for the tip and the link to the how-to. I also really love this make-up.

Paolita@BerryHaute said...

Being from Mexico but living elsewhere makes me miss El Dia de los Muertos, your post made up for it though;)
