Well perhaps this post comes a little late in the year then it should but the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group organized a swap that I couldn't pass. And I will show you later what I have created but while working ... again in my dream world while working, I went across the Atlantic ocean back to europe... Venice, Italy to be exact. What we in US call as Mardi Gras, in europe its the Carnival. I was brought up celebrating carnival in Malta.
Thats me dressed as the Spanish Dancer =) Cute eh!!?? Hihi!! Malta's carnival is much like Halloween without the trick or treating. We dress up and go to the city and watch the parade
Lots of bright floats and mariachi bands.
And speaking of Masquerade Balls, I can't help but remember my favorite musical... Yes, I was LISTENING to the music while working.
Sure you have noticed by now The Phantom of the Opera. Like Marie Antoinette, this movie is very inspiring to me when it comes to costumes and props and everything else.
Let's no forget to mention Gerard Butler but I'm not gonna go there
The mask is covered in velvet and well, glitters of course!!
