holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
Yoooooo, this is me
ref grabs. I guess her sugar coating is her “skin,” she has a nose and everything just painted over unlike the actual skeleton characters.
La Muerte (the character) is based on the Mexican Catrinas used during the Day of the Dead, and many women who dress up as the Catrina draw the nose holes on their noses like that to emulate the skull through make-up along with the colorful markings. The sugar coating on the “skin” is to show that La Muerte is made of candy, which emulates the candy skulls that are made for the festival of the Day of the Dead, and the candy skulls have those colorful markings on them as well. It’s also cool to notice the Cempasúchil flowers on her dress and hat, which are always present during the festival.
These are some of the reasons as to why I have mad respect for the details that are being given to these characters <3
Not only that but her color scheme is almost entirely the colors most used for Day of the Dead, Black, representing , the land of the dead, Pink meaning celebration, White for purity/hope, Yellow for a new day and the sun, Red for the life/blood of humans/animals, the only color missing would be purple which usually represented greif and suffering [however perhaps it was intended to be removed?]
Plus the candles placed on her sombrero is just really perfect because of the fact that candles are placed on the shrines people make for the dead in order for the dead to have easier guidance when returning
Also her dress itself is just, wow, really close to how Catrinas would be portrayed
Really great job for the character designs and the real effort and creativity put into this movie is just wowowow !!!
thsi is my favorite joke from the episode
