Dia De Los Muertos- Riverside

On Nov 2nd, after our make-up was on we headed out to the Annual Dia De Los Muertos Celebration in Riverside. We learned from last year and went early. This event is so awesome, but it is so packed!! The space to walk around the altars is so teeny tiny and there are just so many people. We say it every year but they need to expand!

My friend Denise had a booth set up. She had all her amazing stuff on display. I had to pick up a set of coasters.

This is always my favorite part of the event. Adding Roman's name to the community altar.

Now that The Phi is a full fledged writer, she made her own.

I could not get enough of these adorable dolls. Just the thought of The Phi snugging up with a little Frida doll was too much! Oh if I was made of $$!


  1. Oh, how I wish I could have had the chance to walk around and check out all the stuff. All I saw was what was in front of me! lol I did check out those dolls and @_@ they were freaking amazing. All the vendors were super nice. What a great night it turned out to be! Thanks for stopping by to see me.
