Submission: Since you’re asking for cute stuff: This is my dog Coco, falling asleep in the car on her way to visit grandma and grandpa (or as she probably sees them: the biscuit-givers - they always have some ready for her). ^v^
• You guys were probably playing with Coco when he asked you out
• Him getting really nervous and stuttering over his words to ask you out
• Cute little kisses on the cheek
• After your first kiss he just keeps kissing you bc he can’t resist
• Falling in love with his morning voice
• Asking to make his laugh your ringtone
• Constantly holding hands
• Like all the time y'all
• Helping him learn English (or learning English w/ him depending on your first language)
• Running your hands through his hair
• Him singing super loud to annoy you
• Walking Coco as an excuse to be by yourselves
• Fawning over Coco together
• Lots of nuzzling into shoulders
• Him getting really excited whenever you sing
• You running your hands through his hair
• Taking selcas together
• Nose kisses
• Counting his moles and freckles
Its most likely because no lips makes it hard to animate expressions which is why most skeletons in animation have moving eye sockets and can move their teeth like lips. Jack Skellington is a good example too and the skeleton with a top hat in the corpse bride (sorry if you weren’t actually asking)
I think the Coco skeleton’s problem is that it’s just too “human/alive” looking to be a skeleton. Like you pointed out Jack is rather expressive for a skeleton, you could say he’s even somewhat fleshy looking too, what with his cranium and mandible being all one giant sphere rather than separated.
However we can still discern he is in fact a skeleton because of the empty eye and nasal sockets, and also his boney hands and the slight etched markings on his “lips” that look like teeth, and whenever he DOES do a weird lip looking expression he still has the etched markings on his face so it somewhat looks like he’s still talking through his teeth rather than a fleshy mouth.
An open mouth. ( a general skeleton look )
An “Ooo” mouth ( technically only things with lips can do this in reality, but note the marks on his face still! )
And something I want to point out on the skeletons in Corpse Bride is that all of them have separate craniums and mandibles, and no lips. ( and only two of the skeleton characters have eyes. )
Some of them do look more expressive than the others, I think General Wellington (the skeleton with the red suit and… moustache?!? ) and Elder Gutknecht (the last skeleton) still look rather expressive on their own, mainly because of the way their brows and cheekbones are modeled.

Lazy Binary Doodles of Every Official/Unofficial Member of the ACAB Project That I Currently Know Of
I tried to make it so that at least everybody’s face was mostly showing. Thank you all for being around and making up the community! It’s great that just a year ago or so I couldn’t name a single active ACAB, but now there’s around 20 of ya’ll that I can see having fun and doing all sorts of things! I wish that I could do something a lot better than this to celebrate ya’ll, but I’m just not capable of handling a detailed project like that in bulk. Maybe someday as I learn the virtue of patience I’ll be able to give a proper gift to everybody.
In alphabetical order (and excluding Coco) here’s a list o’everyone pictured.
You’re sweet, thank you for asking!!! <3 *hugs* so let’s try those!
6. When you looked in the mirror this morning what was the first thing you thought?
I’ve… still not looked in the mirror today, and I was about to go to sleep. But most of the time, it’s in the morning, and I just check if my sunburns had disappeared or not. It’s been two years, and I’m disappointed every morning. The scars will never leave.
18. Who would you really like to just punch in the face? … I won’t say the name of the first person popping into my mind, and think a little before answering. Then i’d say Trump.
48. Do you hold grudges?
He, I wish I did for real. When someone does something bad to me, I try to hold grudges but in the end, I replace hate with indifference; even with the WORST people, and I knew a few of them. HOWEVER if someone hurts my friends, then I REALLY hold grudges. Never cross my path again, pal, or you might regret it.
how do you feel about people saying that coco is a book of life rip off?
the book of life is a joke as a ‘mexican movie’. it is 2% accurate and i cannot take it seriously. i would expect pixar to be a little better than that (my fingers are crossed).
i really cannot judge on coco right away because we have minimum material but so far i can see many more mexican elements included than in the book of life:
the dog (dante) is a xoloescuincle which is an endemic dog from méxico (however, you need to be fucking rich to own one).
they have the cempazuchi which are the orange flowers/petals which are 100% día de muertos (especially in their petal form)
the altar looks much more like something you would find at a mexican office/workshop/household (mexican people shove in their workplace/living place an altar. it usually uses little space but has a lot of elements. tho it’s usually more religious (x))
la catrina is that ‘fancy looking skeleton lady’ that has been massed lately (like in make up and stuff). it is a social critic about people who had no european ancestry but liked to pretend they did. it is called ‘la catrina’ because that’s you can refer to a woman like “‘that’ woman named Catrina.” her design is much more accurate to the first design made by jose guadalupe posada (x)
so yeah, so far it looks better/more accurate and when i first watched it didnt made me cringe. however, i do accept the mexican tradition is really hard to work with because it’s complicated and it has a lot of influences from other cultures that can quickly make it shitty.
but yeah that the huge purple buildings are suspicious and that scene does look a lot like the one on the book of life. that concept can die because that is 0% mexican.
