    aren’t these sugar skulls?

    apparently the color combinations are supposed to mean things, like black and green (the one Marrock likes) is a way of showing respect for your elders. or something. i’m too tired to wiki.

    I can’t decide if a skull should look so festive. I generally like my skulls dark and bleak, these guys look way to cheery…except for the orange one a few rows back on the right, he looks like he’s about to scream, I like him.

    the color combinations does not mean anything, the folclor of painting the skull is just to celebrate death in a funny way
