42 Best Venetian Masquerade Masks From Carnivale Di Venezia

Amazing Carnival Costumes From My Trip To Venice, Italy’s Famous Carnivale

Just a few weeks ago, Boyd and I hopped the pond to Italy. Our trip started in the most southern tip of Italy with a short personal trip to Venice. While we were on business in the south, everyone was raving over the Italian version of Mardi Gras called Carnevale Venezia.Everyone on the first leg of our trip commended us on our excellent planning for being able to see the best masks and costumes that I would ever lay eyes on.

At first, I was concerned that we were throwing ourselves into the mix of chaotic parties. Little did I know that Carnival is somewhat the opposite in level of sophistication in comparison to the American New Orleans version of Mardi Gras which I’ve always avoided.

Watch this to see the best masks and costumes of Carnival in Venice or Carnaval, Venetia Italia for my Italian friends:

One of the best parts of this trip to Italy and Venice is that we did very little planning before the trip.

Starting with business meetings with the Italian Trade Commission, we just asked the Italians with good taste where they liked to go. Honestly, this is how Boyd was convinced to visit Venice vs. the leaning Tower of Pisa.

1. Full Metal Face.  This guy’s metal mask and chromed leather shoes are awesome! Keep going because we save the best for last!

My work sidekick and graphics creative director, Adriana had already recommended that we skip Pisa on the first trip. She said we would be disappointed.

2. Deer in headlights. The deer head mask and toile dear fabric in his costume mixed with chartreuse tassels and ball fringe were to die for. Then, he tops it off with a cane, complete with a prancing deer ornament.

3. A new wave of jesters in town. Carnaval had not even officially begun and I knew she was right! I mean look at the creativity of these masks and costumes made of cut foam. A lot of cut foam. Hours, and hours of cut foam.

4. Clowning Around Carnaval. The Italians put the time and energy into their entire performance. If you didn’t watch the video above, you must go back and watch this guy. He was playing these instruments covered in fabric! A clown after my own heart. Did I mention that Boyd spotted him first?

I was like a kid in a candy shop! My eyes were feasting on the costumes around me. Thankfully Boyd was on watch for the next ones for me to photograph.

7. Square + Edgy Steampunk Pair.

8. Traditional Venetian Couple. From steampunk to handmade Venetian replica fashion, there was not a single costume like another.

9. The Inventive Steampunk Scientists. Not only had these folks imagined and mastered the creativity of most of their costumes. Like models, actors, and actresses, they played their roles extremely well.

I hope you’ve enjoyed exploring Carnaval via my blog post even a hundredth as much as I enjoyed being there. The best way I can sum up my first trip to Carnaval was like seeing my daughter, Macy at Disney World for the first time. She wanted to fill her autograph book with Disney characters. I wanted to capture every costume. There were more, many more so I’d like to thank the PuTTin’ OuT team for selecting the best photos because I simply could NOT decide.

Thank you for reading, watching, and taking part in our travels.
