Dress Like La Muerte (Book of Life) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Don’t be discouraged that her name translates to Death in English. Death isn’t necessarily a bad thing, and it happens to every one of us. La Muerte shows that even Death can be kind, generous, and gentle.

She is the goddess presiding in the Land of the Remembered after all. But she just can’t seem to resist in betting. Oh, well! We guess not even goddesses are perfect.

La Muerte looks regal in her long red, long-sleeved dress bedecked with marigolds all over. She also loves her very wide red sombrero which also has marigolds and candles on top of it. She also has skeleton skull heads attached at the hems of her dress & hat.

La Muerte’s skin is white as snow as well. Here’s everything you need to look like La Muerte.
