COVID-19 has greatly impacted the way we celebrate some of our favorite events. With Dia de los Muertos and Halloween coming up soon, we wanted a great way to celebrate these events while promoting CDC guidelines.
What it does
Night of the Living Skulls allows individuals to decorate their own Calavera using multiple fun decorations and colors. The unique image can then be printed out and worn as-is, or uploaded to another service, such as Vistaprint, in order to create a custom facemask! Other ideas include using the design as a pattern for custom fabrics.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are beyond proud of what we accomplished in 24 hours! The biggest source of pride comes from being able to drag, drop, and clone the decorative images. Between the decorative images and the canvas element, which was converted to a column layout, it was amazing seeing the two being integrated and working with the drag and drop decorations.
What we learned
What's next for Night of the Living Skulls
We plan on expanding on this idea and adding more features. We will enable a toggle button to display the bottom half of the mask for the creation of face masks to cover the nose and mouth, integrate a color picker for decorations and customization, and allow for saving and exporting of images for the creation of custom face masks.
