Just a small recomendation, the name isnt candy skull. A candy skull is a calaverita de Azucar.
This facepaint is a Catrina.
And yes i'm Mexican and live in Mexico to make this correction.

Cooool. Are the bones on your legs painted on under the fishnets, or are they part of the tights?

wabagoon (author)scoochmaroo2012-10-26

Needed two pairs... first pair is costume hosiery with bones already on them, second pair over top are the fishnets.
