DAY OF THE DEAD

A tribute to Mexico’s celebration of life and to honour the dead, The “ Day Of The Dead” is the festival that began with the Aztecs some 3000 years ago.

Día de Muertos is a public holiday in Mexico celebrated at the same time as Hallowe’en but has since become renowned throughout the world and Area 51 have produced a Day Of The Dead collection to stun audiences.

Borrowing the iconic sugar skull character design that’s come to symbolise the global phenomenon, 51 have given a highly decorative alternative to the darker themes normally associated with Halloween events.

In fact, it’s a style that we often successfully incorporate into other themes and genres as it looks so stunning.

We can provide traditional characters, or mix into something altogether more unusual as required – such as our Day of the Dead and Alien hybrids.
