Sugar Skull


Often people get confused and call this a new version of the skeleton costume. Just as almost everything gets an upgrade as years pass on, they believe that this one is too. It may have skeleton features, but this isn’t a skeleton costume. The name for it is sugar skull costume. The reason is that on The Day of the Dead or All Souls’ Day, people often go to the stores to buy a skull, made of either wood or candy, and present it as an offering for the deceased. The name of the loved one is written in a foil and stuck on the head of the skull. You normally get edible ones as well that’s obviously meant for the kids. This has become a tradition in some countries and to celebrate it, people dress in costumes. Here’s how you can have a sugar skull costume.
