Every year I enjoy a creative project around the Day of the Dead, my favorite cosplay holiday. So when I saw how my new infrared camera performed, I was eager to use it for this year's effort. The infrared offers a play on the traditional with a real ghostly look (provided by infrared) and a "Whatever Dreams May Come" treatment to give it an afterworld feel. The combination of infrared and makeup make for an otherworldly take on this traditional Latin holiday. At its heart, the Day of the Dead is a celebration, and some of the photos of Holly feature her dancing and enjoying afterworld life.
