You know what they'd really be good for if doing Mexico as a
progression from Halloween- That is to make life size puppets, the
puppets up on poles. Have an extension and use the same material you
already have to alter your skeletons from the Halloween to Dias de
los Muertos wearable puppets. Have sugar skulls on the side for
pleasure ( I myself prefer and have pink sugar cookies which I've
had, and my Mother has had, from the same Mexican bakery since my
mom was a little girl).
