I get much of my inspiration for my Dia de los Muertos images from actual photographs that I take. Puerto Vallarta’s Malacon (beach boardwalk) is filled with enormous Day of the Dead figures and altars on the days leading up to November 2. I visit several times that week during different times of day to take photographs with my point-and-shoot camera. I then bring them to life, imagining them living, breathing and moving. My husband and I are Day of the Dead aficionados. Our wedding was filled with papel picados, paper flowers, pinatas and marigolds. The groom cake toppers home from Puerto Vallarta my partner of almost 30 years popped the question. Our fabulous wedding photographer Corinna See took the photo that inspired the original “Amor.” I created the other “Amors” from paper mâché wedding cake toppers that I photographed.
Amor - Bride & Groom
Amor – Novio y Novia
This is part of a series of Day of the Dead wedding cake toppers. These paper mâché figures are molded and have a single body; the skulls stuck on toothpicks: part two-headed monster and part newlyweds, full of glitter and Mexican charm. The groom is positively courtly in his tux and top hat. The bride may look demure, but she’s not. They are going to a party when this cake is cut. ¡AMOR!
All Amor Prints can be personalized with the couple’s names and wedding or anniversary dates printed on the cake. A great gift for the happy couple.
There is an additional $35 charge to personalize the print. When you place your order, send me a message by email with the names and date. I will arrange for payment.
$49.00 – $455.00
