I regret that I wasn't able to make it this year, but here's a few photos that I took last time. I forgot to mention that everyone in costume plays the part with seriousness.
|Their costumes were very heavy|
|Their passion was portrayed so well|
|I named them Hanzel & Grettel|
|I fell in love with the head piece|
|Not sure why, but this one kind of creeps me out...lol|
I would post 500 pictures of Carnevale if I could! Every year it still makes me speechless (a very difficult thing to do) and the creativeness is overwhelming at times. If you ever get a chance, I recommend going. Maybe not to Venice for the celebration but anywhere in Italy. I hear that Germany has some pretty awesome Carnevale parties/celebrations as well...sure they have more beer though...lol.
