Best of Hard Day of the Dead, 2013
Hard's Day of the Dead went down over the weekend in Chinatown's L.A. State Historic Park with a lineup featuring Skrillex, Deadmau5, Pretty Lights, Tokimonsta, RL Grime and loads of other electronic artists. Most of the event was awesome. Below, what we liked the best.

The Face Paint
The Dia de los Muertos theme was in effect, from the decorations to the costumes. But it was the face paint that was most amazing: Intricate skeleton designs, complete with black stitches, black eyes, white cheeks and more, often topped by red flower crowns. Scary hot. -Mary Grace Cerni
Katie Bain Best Tattoo: This guy!
At Hard events attendees often come nearly naked, but Day of the Dead also features actual costumes, making for hypnotic people watching and whimsical situations, such as watching a cop, a ninja turtle and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz all dancing their asses off to trap music. -Katie Bain
The Extra Hour
Daylight savings time just ended, and scheduling the first day of the fest for the night when our clocks "fell back" made for an extra hour of partying (or relaxation). We'll take it. -Katie Bain
Walk dancing is when someone's trying get closer to the front of the stage, but a song they love comes on, and they can't help but walk and dance at the same time. It's baller. -Mary Grace Cerni
