Latino Star Wars fans, rejoice! Mis Nopales has all the Star Wars Día de los Muertos swag you didn’t even know you needed. Check them out.
These are the brain and talent behind Mis Nopales.
Jose Pulido is the artist behind the Día de los Muertos takeover of American pop culture icons and his brother, who helped him start the company right after college.
Mis Nopales shares Mexican culture by transforming American pop culture icons.
“Nopales are a classic symbol representative of our culture and they belong to everyone, hence ‘Mis Nopales’,” reads their website. “We believe that everyone should be proud of their culture and history, no matter who you are. Be PROUD y NO TE RAJES!!”
mitú paired up with Mis Nopales to create fire merch for you to represent both your culturas.
That’s right. Now you can wear some of your favorite piece from Mis Nopales. Check them out in the mitú shop.
This fire Dos Fridas Tee makes for the perfect gift for the feminist bestie in your life. | $24.99
These calaveras pay tribute to the forever iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. We don’t know how the real Frida felt about 100 percent cotton shirts, but we’re sure she would have adored this Dos Fridas Tee, and not just because it has her face on it once, but twice.
This Paletero Tee is the perfect homage to the most incredible man in our lives. | $24.99
Can calaveras eat paletas even if they don’t have stomachs? Life is full of uncertainties such as this, but if there’s one thing we know, it’s that you would look so cool rocking this Paletero Tee.
This lovely Amor Eterno Tee is sure to bring tears of joy to anyone who sees you wearing it. | $24.99
If you don’t believe that love is forever, then just look at the calaveras on this Amor Eterno Tee. They’re dead AF and still in each other’s loving arms. Where’s your argument now? This song is legit the most iconic and important song in our culture.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil Tee is the best (and most shady) gift for la más chismosa in your life. | $24.99
LOL. You know you see, hear, and speak all kinds of evil, so don’t pretend that you’re a lil angelito. You’re not fooling anyone. But then again, this tee might make others think you are, so do yourself a favor and buy this See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil Tee. Then you can do whatever you want without consequence! Yay!
This Zapata Tee is next level and everyone you pass will know that you are super proud of your Mexican heritage. | $24.99
This calavera pays homage to the iconic Emiliano Zapata who was a prominent figure in the Mexican Revolution. Add some historic Latino flare to your look with this Zapata Tee! It’s also great for educating people about your heritage.
My guy this Pura Vida Tee was meant 2b. | $24.99
The irony of this Pura Vida Tee is that it features a proud Mexican calavera that is supposedly full of life… even though he’s a skeleton… and skeletons are usually pretty dead. Anyway, rejoice in the wonders of life (and tequila) with this tee!
No Te Rajes Tee is here for when it’s time for you to fight for yourself. | $24.99
This calavera is not only cute, but he’s also a persistent little fighter that won’t give up. Who do you think he’s fighting against? His inner demons? An unknown opponent? Either way, nothing will stop him and nothing will stop you… from buying this No Te Rajes Tee!
The adorable Jardinero Tee will blow just about anyone’s mind. | $24.99
Not all heroes wear capes; some of them actually wear leaf blowers. Jardineros are the masters of cleanliness who keep the front of your house looking fresh. Now the front of your body can look equally as fresh with this Jardinero Tee!
Basically, mission accomplished, boys.
Everyone should be feeling very proud of being Mexican right now.
Now, enjoy the Mis Nopales’ take the whole Star Wars cast got. Everyone from C-3PO and R2-D2 got a new Día de los Muertos look…
…Including Darth Vader….
…And everyone in between.
This is arguably the most epic mashup. of. all. time.
Could you resist a Día de los Muertos Yoda?
Didn’t think so.
Pulido’s art has been spotted as far away as Veracruz, Mexico.
Because there is nowhere better for a Día de los Muertos Star Wars showdown than Mexico, duh!
This collection is so epic that fans have even started getting their favorite pieces as tattoos.
Which is the 21st century’s most sincere form of flattery.
Surely, Pulido’s #mood is probably a little something like this rn.
But if you’re not a Star Wars fan, no worries. Everyone is fair game for his imagination.
Simpsons? ✔️ Breaking Bad? ✔️ Disney?…you get it. There’s a sticker for everything.
