Carnevale - Venice Trip Part 2

As you now Carnevale is my favourite time in Venice and I love to see all the wonderful costumes that visitors wear - here is just a "small" selection of what I saw, I will post some more in the next post as there were so many fabulous creations to see - we'll start with my favourite couple of the trip who just happen to be in my favourite colour PINK!
Fabulous in pink and silver!

An elegant lady.

 


The circus - a very clever costume 
close up. Note the tiger slippers!

2 of 3 Pomeranians dressed for Carnevale!

All 3, with their owners, in a pram!




This lovely dog had a butterfly clip o
her head....so sweet!




The Snow Queen?




This lady had serious headdress 
malfunction and it took a bit of effort 
to get this headdress to behave!




Carousel - these were 2 fabulous 
costumes the detail was great
and the carousel on the man's  
walking stick wound up like a 
music box (no music) great idea! 
The panels on the edges of the 
carousel canopies/skirts also had 
paintings of Venice landmarks on 
them.  If you blow up the picture you 
can just make this out. 


This costume lit up - all the little
"Ferrero Rocher"look alikes lit up!


Miss Autumn had a cute Squirrel 
in her crystal ball.


At the Bridge of Sighs.

Almost a Joan Collins lookalike?!

This man wore a huge Peacock 
costume...it was big and heavy so 
it needed a man to wear it!

Close up you can see he has a REAL
stuffed Peacock attached to his
outfit - amazing!

  3. Thank you again, for sharing your beautiful photos. :-) The costumes are so incredible, and elaborate! I can only imagine the time and effort taken to create them. Must be other-wordly to be surrounded by them, while there! Do you go each year...and do you wear a mask and costume?
