I just skimmed them a bit and they all look pretty good! I like the lack of colors just something about black and white brings out the shadows and lights more. Try to prevent blur whenever possible but overall they look good!
THAT IS COMPLETE BULLSHIt?
I mean yes the characters are Mexican but that doesn’t mean you can’t dress up as them if you’re not? Jeez, Korra is brown and clearly Inuit, but white people cosplay her every day?
My best friend Vega is not Mexican, but Puerto Rican and Black and wants to dress up as Maria, specifically because Maria is the first of few Hispanic characters she can identify with. why is that bad?
And it’s been declared time and time again by Mexicans/Latinos - some of which who were in my inbox this summer to confirm it - that La Catrina/La Muerte is a costume in their own culture, not something of religious or sacred importance. Anyone can wear the skull makeup as long as they don’t wear it disrespectfully (i.e. running around shaking maracas and screaming “AYAYAY I’M MEXICAN”)
This is definitely a movie made by Mexicans and for Mexicans to identify with and have fun watching, but its other intention was for it to be shared with the world - a non-appropriative way to depict Mexican culture.
