We are now in full Carnevale mode here, LOTS of tourists on the streets, LOTS of activities going on day and night. The best time to catch some gorgeous costumes is in the mornings, between 8-10 am at St. Mark's square and the Doges Palace. The level of detail on some of these costumes is beyond belief! I hope you feel like you are right there with me as I snapped these photos!
I had to start with this one - the Plague Doctor costume and mask (il Medico dell'Peste), one of the oldest masks used in Venice dating back to the plague of the 1500's.
Here's a perfect example of the level of detail to these costumes. Check the eyes on this model- they are wearing some interesting contact lenses.
Another close up so you can appreciate the detail of these costumes. Look carefully at the peacock ring this model in the peacock outfit is wearing.
Pierrot! It wouldn't be Carnevale without spotting Pierrot.
