Bling carnival costumes are utterly Over The Top. And that’s
The most famous carnivals are in Venice and Rio.
And the bling on display is astounding. Especially in Rio which is also the world’s largest yearly carnival.
Carnival events are held all over the world and usually take place in February or March.
Wikipedia lists over 60 countries where carnivals enliven the year.
For Christians, carnivals have been a way of letting down their hair before the fasting and rigors of Lent for centuries.
Historically carnivals may have a more practical purpose, at least in Europe. The feasting and drinking was a way of using up stored winter butter, cheese and meats before the first food harvests of spring.
Whatever the origins of the carnival closest to you there is no denying the bling factor has exploded in modern times.
In fact elaborate carnival costumes often showcase the latest and most incredible fashion embellishments.
Iridescent Swarovski crystals. Oversized acrylics cut to look like gemstones. Heat transfer rhinestones. The latest sequin fabric designs.
All the best bling is tried and tested during carnivals the world over to become the fashions and accessories we love here at the
