Cosplay based on the character La Muerte or Catrina created for the Montreal ComicCon in 2015.

More than 450 handmade Yellow taffeta and organza flowers that decorate both dress and hat which also feature flameless candles installed around the hem of the dress and hat that are battery-operated (2 batteries AA each piece). The wig was also made and styled by me.
