I was playing around with how I'd imagine Death to look, and probably got way too carried away and ended up doing lots of research and using myths and such to spice it up
Meanings-
The sunset coloured skull is mean to represent dying at the right time
The flowers inside it are to be considered funeral flowers
The flowers in her hair are because death brings not only dying but life in return
The face paint is a tradition in "el dia de los muertos"
The chains on her dress is to represent that she is stuck doing her role
and there are numerous small things that I put in that makes sense to me, like the corpse skin and stuff
