People have been celebrating Day of the Dead for over 500 years! Painting these skull masks has been a Mexican tradition as a way to honor the dead and celebrate the continuation of their life. These are displayed and worn to remember relatives who have passed from life (the dream world) and reawakened.
Since I was little, I used to celebrate this holiday with my Grandmother. Making sugar skulls and masks was a tradition I grew up with. Since loosing my grandmother, now 10 years ago, I still paint these masks in her memory.

This is a Hikari Designs Original, Signature Geisha mask. Always being inspired by geisha this is a memorial piece. I am saddened that they are slowly diminishing and in remembrance, I created this piece with all the gentle elements of the geisha themselves.

..................................................................♥.....................................................................


The concept of this special piece, was inspired by the Japanese Story of the "Cherry Blossom Spirit." This was an old Japanese woodblock print. This piece is detailed with a motifs of cherry blossoms as seen in many kimono worn by these geisha along with a center heart design with a pair of fluttering hawmoth butterflies.

This mask is adorned with a crown of colorful silk Sakura, Cherry Blosoms, a wired lace flower and leaves that are in a deep pink that accent the painted flowers. There is a crown of green foliage under the flowers. This geisha is wearing an array of hair ornaments, a large fascinator of Hikari's signature Hawkmoth skull butterfly with teal feathered wings and light shimmering sequence. This piece is also unique for it has a clipped on Kanzashi made of folded silk fabric that has been carefully pieces like origami and dangling petals. This kanzashi is known as Tsunami Kanzashi, inspired by Wisteria flowers and this piece is made with plum and black colors that accent the pinks in this piece.

This hairpiece is clipped to the side of the mask beside a very special Jingling silver hairpin, a very special custom made "bira bira" kanzashi.
You can clip off this purple kanzashi and wear any day! A special bonus to this unique and one of a kind mask!
This is perfect for a Day of the Dead Bride piece for your unique wedding! A touch of red on the eyes, dainty painted lips... gentle jingling as gentle as the beautiful geisha themselves. Anyone who wears this is sure to be the life of the party!

Overall this piece fits most adults.
This piece secures with Pink satin ribbon ties (if you prefer another color, please let me know!)
