The Day of the Dead is coming up and friends of ours have created an iPhone/iPad app in honor of this traditional family oriented holiday.
The Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a two-day celebration that takes place on November 1 through November 2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, both of which are national holidays in several countries.
Its origins are deeply rooted in Mexican culture, but the holiday, which celebrates the lives of loved ones who have passed, is celebrated all over the world.
Many celebrate this holiday of remembrance by dressing up in costume and makeup inspired by La Calavera Catrina (or ‘The Elegant Skull’); the DAY of the DEAD ME app gives you the opportunity to decorate an image with traditional festive makeup and flowers. You can personalize photos of yourself and loved ones, or even pictures of your favorite celebrities!
The app is user-friendly, age-friendly, and best of all, is less than a dollar!
You can learn more about the DAY of the DEAD ME app (and see before and after pics) and Simply Sweet Apps over at their website as well as their Facebook and Twitter pages. You can watch a tutorial of the app in use over at YouTube, and finally, go get the app for your iPhone and iPad over at iTunes.
Here are just a few examples of photos enhanced with the DAY of the DEAD ME app. Have fun decorating yourself, your loved ones, random celebrities (guess who?), whomever you want!
