November 11th is quite the important date here in Cologne, since it’s the start of the fifth season – carnival. It being the 11/11/11, this year is extra special.
I’m no huge fan of the traditional no-brainer-beerfest, but I don’t ever pass up a chance to dress up.
So, what to wear? Since this is only part one of the carnival madness, there’s no need to go overboard with the costume, something last-minute will do. There’s still plenty of time to get your costume for round two in february.
I’ll be pairing up with my dear friend – let’s just say we wanted to go as men – more is yet to come, I’ll try and upload something tomorrow.
Here’s some fashiony inspiration.. Still, I think one shouldn’t be afraid to go ugly.
