Latin America Day of the Dead Photo Gallery
In this Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 photo, artist Luis Castillo poses for a photo in a costume he designed and says is a representation of death, during a contest for the best Day of the Dead altars sponsored by a local university in Mexico City. Elaborate altars are erected inside homes around the region to remember loved ones who have died, decorated with photographs, candles, flowers, skeleton figurines, sugar skulls and sometimes the favorite food and drink of the dearly departed.
