The front of the headband is decorated with brightly colored flowers in alternating shades.

One of the ears has the image of a sugar skull in black and purple with black squares around the skull. Both ears have scalloped edges.

The other ear is black and pink and features the image of a heart with the same black squares around it.

The headband itself is a soft black fabric with flecks in the pattern on the outside. A bright blue nonslip velour runs along the inside.

There is a multi-colored butterfly embroidered on the side of the band.


The flowers and designs on the ears can be seen from the back as well, making this headband vibrant from every angle.

This headband is inspired by papel picado, the perforated paper decorations that are often associated with the Day of the Dead. This can also be found at Disneyland Resort.
