Getting ready for Halloween

Small skeleton figures on table at the gun show a few years ago, part of an array of figurines, many with biker motiff.  Similar to Mexican Day of the Dead figures such as the skeleton bride and so forth, I recall a shop in Nogales, Mexico that had quite an assortment.  I will have to take some shots of them sometime if I can avoid getting shot myself, given the border situation.

You can purchase skeleton bride costume for Halloween now as well, so popular it has become.  But I kind of like these two deadbeats.  A cultural reminder of the truth of impermanence.
