Other people at the Rivera Dia De Muertos party - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Other people at the Rivera Dia De Muertos party
So, I'm starting to work up to the dance party ending. :D

I decided to take a super-close look at the last scene to see if I can squeeze some of my OCs into an actual shot. (I am petty. I admit it.) I plan to stick Carlos and Calles and Tina in there regardless, but there are no likely candidates that we saw, so they're, you know, in the kitchen eating Elena's tamales or something.

But here are some others:

Is it me, or is the younger woman here the woman who hosted the talent show at the plaza the year before? Don't know who the older folk are. (There was another child in the papel picado stuff who could have been a brother of Elena and Victoria, but it's too late to add him at this point, and no canon source ever mentions that, so I'm assuming this guy is someone else. Maybe they could be Luisa's grandparents, who've been driving around in their RV all year?)

I think I can pass off the woman in the purple shirt and jeans as Tia Meche, and maybe the woman is her daughter Leti? The girl could be a variety of cousin.

Papa Ysidro.jpg
I'm declaring this dude in the cowboy hat to be Papa Ysidro. No theories on the woman in the shawl.

Another cowboy hat dude talking to an apron lady. No theories, and they're actually on the street outside, so they may not be involved.

These two are talking right outside the big gate that leads into the residential half of the hacienda.

I thought at first that they were these two, seen from another angle, but the clothes are different.

That’s not the same man in a cowboy hat, jeans, and a white collared shirt? I bet the animators used the same figure. Some of the others, they may have just changed clothing colors, like the two plump ladies in purple aprons, with green vs purple shirt. Not that it helps you...

Anyway, cowboy hat looks just how I pictured Isidro. The lady in the shawl could be his sister, if she ever comes down off the mountain. Maybe some of the townspeople, who protected them during the funeral have come.

I haven’t seen the movie, so I could be wrong about all of this. But I love your story. ~Karen

They definitely used the same figure (the lady in the apron with her hair up is used twice, too). But they changed a couple of things. Apron-lady's apron color is different, and cowboy-hat-dude has his shirt tucked in one shot and untucked in the other. Given that they were blurry shots used for microseconds, I'll still applaud the detail work. ;p
