Are you heading to the Dia de los Muertos parade in the Mission this weekend? We highly recommend it. The makeup and costumes are a sight to behold. And if you'd like to get the look of a somehow beautiful living dead person, we've found a tutorial that makes it seem not impossible to achieve an intricate and beautiful skull face.

San Francisco's Dia de los Muertos celebration is on Saturday, November 2 from 6 to 11pm. It travels between 26th & Harrison Streets to Garfield Park.
