Carnival of Venice 2011

I debated whether to post this or not, given the sad circumstances, but then I figured that the pictures might cheer up some of you guys a little :)♥

I hope the pictures look good on your screens and not too dark/bright :| I compared my laptop with the desktop pc and the pics look completely different x_x

On my way towards Piazza san Marco...

bonus points to this guy for being the first one wearing a costume that I met :3 He represents San Marco's Lion.

I really love this couple ♥ There were only a few people wearing costumes inspired to the fashion of the end of the 19th century, sadly :(

Funny Flamboyant Guy from before found himself a handsome friend ;D (also, I'm pretty sure I remember both of them from last year or the year before that~)

Oh dear, this poor girl XD;; I always say that camwhores should go to the Carnival, because as long as you have an even remotely interesting costume people will fall all over themselves (literally) and tear at each other (also literally) to take your picture, but she was nearly mobbed by guys asking her to take pictures with them and yelling "you're so gorgeous!!" XD;; and she is, omg *__* I elbowed my way to the front to take these pictures <.<;;

I'm kinda bummed I wasn't able to take more pics of these two (especially a full-body one), they were so lovely... the guy had an actual (fake) bird in the "cage" of his hat, don't know if you can glimpse it~

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
And last but not the least... XD
I really loved this Jack Sparrow, his costume was very well-done and detailed ♥ He was a favourite of Japanese high school girls, there was a swarm of them visiting Venice and they all took pics with him XD;; Sadly, I wasn't able to take a pic of Jack surrounded by uniform-wearing girls, but it was pretty epic XD


Bonus pics: sweets and cookies of Venetian pastry shops :D
