Frida y Diego en la Casa AzulNadie sabrá jamás cómo quiero a Diego. No quiero que nada lo hiera, que nada lo moleste y le quite energía que él necesita para vivir, vivir como a él le dé la gana, Pintar, ver amar, comer, dormir, sentirse solo, sentirse acompañado; pero nunca quisiera que estuviera triste. Si yo tuviera salud quisiera dársela toda, si yo tuviera juventud toda la podría tomar, No soy solamente la madre, soy el embrión. el germen, la primera célula que- en potencia- lo engendró. Soy él desde las más primitivas y más antiguas células, que con el tiempo se volvieron él. Cada momento él es mi niño, mi niño nacido, cada ratito, diario, de mí misma.
Frida Kahlo’s love for Diego Rivera was as unconditional as her love for art. Their relationship — filled with loss, sickness and infidelities — was equal parts passionate and confusing.
In a rare video posted by a Frida Kahlo fan page on Facebook, we see Frida and Diego spend time together, caressing and kissing each other in Frida’s Casa Azul. The video was shot by photographer Nikolas Murray, and in the home clip a narrator recites an excerpt from Frida’s diary, in which she explains her unconditional love for Diego:
“Nobody will ever know how much I love Diego. I don’t want anything to hurt him, nothing to bother him and rob him of the energy he needs for living — for living as he likes, for painting, seeing, loving, eating, sleeping, being by himself, being with someone. But I’d never want him to be sad. If I had good health, I’d give him all of it. If I had youth, he could take it all…”
Halloween is all about letting your creativity shine. Some people might phone it in with some animal ears and underwear and that’s fine. But some people really go all out to make the most important dress-up night of the year worth it. Here are some of the best Halloween costumes you all submitted tagged @wearemitu in. Did yours make the list?
This new #filter/#nofilter couples costume is the latest trendy costume and we ship it.
We all know that adding a filter to a photo will bring out all of the best in you, or at least that’s what Snapchat and Instagram want you to believe. Regardless, seeing this couple making the most of their social media connection, even including the unicorn ears and horn, is so great.
Of course, there is nothing purer than including your sweet puppies into your Halloween costume.
OMG! Look at those sweet little angels perfectly rocking the Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes. We hope they went trick or treating to get all of the doggie treats available to them. They very clearly deserve it.
Doña Angela is the YouTube sensation you need to be following if you aren’t already.
The abuelita YouTube sensation is bringing all of her rancho recipes to you via the internet. Her page is so popular, she has already received two plaques from YouTube celebrating her evergrowing subscription numbers. This costume is genius and the work that went into it paid off.
You can’t forget the most classic couples costume.
Tapatío and Cholula are the most recognizable hot sauces in anyone’s kitchen. It just makes sense to pair the two together for the ultimate couple’s foodie costume. You can even turn this into a family costume when a little baby comes along by making the baby a burrito.
Who else remembers “The Fairly Oddparents”?
Simple, crafty, cheap. This is one costume you can make on a budget and people will recognize exactly who you are. Timmy Turner is one of the most nostalgic cartoon characters of our childhood. This costume is a great homage to the kid with the pink hat.
Selena is cute but what about a zombie Selena?
We have seen Selena costumes every year and the most common one is clearly the purple jumpsuit. This little fan took it just one step further and delivered a zombie version of la reina. Tbh, we’d probably get bit by a zombie Selena because we’d try to get her to sing for us.
Frida Kahlo + Diego Rivera = Costume Goals
Recognizable, fun, cultural. Spread that love of your Mexican heritage with a costume paying tribute to two of the most iconic artists to ever come out of Mexico.
This piñata costume is kind of everything our childhood dreams are made of.
Wow. The time it must have taken to cut and glue the paper without it ripping or falling apart is impressive. That is some señora level of patience and precision. We salute you and the hard work you obviously put in to make your costume one to remember.
Kids are the perfect blank canvas for your costume desires.
We are going to assume these little ones haven’t watched “The Bride of Chuckie” since it is a little too much for little ones. However, that shouldn’t stop you from using your little tykes to show off your design skills and love of all things horror.
Bad Baby Bunny might be this year’s Halloween winner.
This is too adorable not to love. Like, wow. The mom behind this costume is one of the greatest costume designers we’ve see. She nailed it with the pants and the extra eye!
No costume list is complete without our favorite superhero El Chapulin Colorado.
Truly one of the greats. We cannot stress enough how much we enjoy seeing all of your costumes this year. Talk about a great year for homemade and relevant costumes. You all rock!
