Rozani's Mardi Gras Costumes
It's anything goes when it comes to dressing for the Mardi Gras! Themes can vary and are mostly quite colorful. Traditional themes include medieval and ancient. Though jesters are one of the most whimsical characters depicted throughout the Mardi Gras season, the theme of Bacchus, God of Wine is also very prevalent. Last, but not least is the jazz theme. What do these themes have in common, you might ask? Perhaps a bit of culture from the past and the love of wine and song. That's for you to decide.
WHAT DO WE WEAR? Onlooking participants (That's you.) don't have to dress according to theme restrictions such as members of Krewes. In other words, if you are not in a carnival club, don't sweat it! You can be anyone or anything, literally. Your participation by just being in the crowds, qualifies you to masquerade any way you like.
TO MASK OR NOT TO MASK? That, my friends, is the question. Masks are a great way to disguise yourself and conceal your true identity. There are masks of many shapes, forms and materials. Since ancient times, the wearing of masks has added intrigue, mystery and drama to character portrayals. Choose a mask that fits comfortably and does not restrict your vision. From comedy to tragedy, it's just pure fun! Be sure to check out my mask selections below and inspirational links to related sites at my Papier Mache' Page .
