Graphic Tees • Don Paco Day of the Dead Women's Slim Fit Tee3655400_4902
Don Paco! Seriously though, doesn't it look like a Don Paco? A hipster skull with an awesome beard that I wish that I could grow! The colours I added to the design are meant to give it a glow in the dark, sort of a neon feel to them. The backdrop is an awesome "Heather Black" Graphic tee that give this shirt the right amount of stretch and comfortable softness.

Now for my second topic, the day of the dead. As a kid I was frightened when the "Dia de los Muertos" would happen. Halloween wasn't really celebrated when I was little guy in Central America. However when November 2nd came around, you would see a display of costumes honouring those that have departed.
During the evening family members would gather and bring food that they would have cooked during the day to give as offerings. Included could be fruit and even alcoholic drinks. Holding candles the procession would begin with all family members gathered, making their way to the Cemetery. Along the way you could see statues and photographs of the departed along with paper maché figures of skeletons. Face paint was also a common sight and to little me at the time, it was quite scary.
One thing that stands out during these celebrations is how everyone would gather and speak so memorably of those that have gone. Stories would be passed about their lives and what they did in their short time.
To end this post, I hope that you enjoy these Day of the Dead graphic tees, and that you wear them proudly on November second.
