I love costumes but when I was in Venice I didn’t wear any costume. I was busy because of the university and I decided to go to carnival last minute with my mother.Designing and sewing costume requires to much time and I didn’t have a time for that.
You don’t have to design and sew your costume. You can rent or order it in Venice. If you don’t want to wear any costume in Venice, you can simply wear regular clothes with the addition of bold makeup, accessories or a masquerade mask.
