It is Halloween which just possibly could be the highest point of the season at the newer one of Tokyo’s two different Disney parks, Tokyo Disney Sea. The whole park is decorated in a sort of hyper colorful Mexican Day of the Dead theme with fantastic looking skeletons entertaining the visitors throughout the park…(more)
Goli Mohammadi reports: We spied this amazing Day of the Dead costume online today. The dress is skillfully made of “cups, plates, and plastic utensils,” and it looks like the suit is made of garbage bags. Not sure how “recycled” the materials are, but a great re-imagining of those form factors nonetheless. Do you know who these makers are? If so, let us know in the comments so we can give them the credit they deserve. It was just too good not to share. (Contact goli Mohammadi at goli (at) makermedia (dot) com.)
