Before they got their Disney treatment in the film Coco, Dia De Los Muertos is very much a real holiday in Mexico, where people remember their loved ones who have passed by putting stuff they liked next to photos of them on an altar.

When someone dies, loved ones will often keep a remembrance of the deceased like a lock of hair, but when the rich, famous and powerful die, people ask for a whole lot more.

In death as in life, people are obsessed with the bodies of celebrities.
