People were dying to go to the Day of the Dead-themed Halloween costume party at the spooky Bellaire home of Michelle and Pedro Cosculluela.  

Michelle shared, “I’m obsessed with Halloween. The front yard is all decorated and I’m the crazy one driving around with a skeleton holding on to the back of my car.”

Michelle and Pedro Cosculluela, the best looking dead hosts we've ever seen.

This year’s spook-tacular soiree theme was inspired by Michelle chairing the St. Michael’s middle school Day of the Dead dance on Friday, Nov. 2, which is the actual date of Day of the Dead.  (She figured she could wear her colorful Mexican dress twice!)

Day of the Dead or Día de los Muertos is a celebration of life and death. In towns and cities throughout Mexico, revelers wear skeleton like face masks and makeup, costumes, hold parades and parties, sing and dance, celebrate life and make offerings and prayers in remembrance of lost loved ones.

“In the past we hosted a block party for all the kids, but the last three years we have had fun with a big-kids-only party!” Michelle said.

Michelle hopes that both the adults and the middle schoolers enjoy the Day of the Dead festivities.
