Inspirational Masks for Venice Carnival / Carnivale.
Make a splash at the Tiepolo Ball / Ballo Tiepolo in a very sexy & highly original wire work, filigree face mask.
If you are attending a fabulous party at this years carnival, what could be more fabulous than being the bell of the ball in just the prettiest & sexiest masks you can buy. O.K. so these masks are not so much about the traditional cover up of the heavier papier mache designs but with fine wire work & beadwork spun into loops & peeks around your eyes & across your skin, combined with some dramatic make up - lashings of maskara & a well placed 'Assasina' beauty spot & everyone will definitly want to know who's that girl!
All my masks are hand made by myself, Chantal Mallett & though they look very delicate they are quite robust & comfortable as they are shaped properly to fit the contours of a face.
Carnival / Carnivale 2006 is advertised as being on from 17th - 28th February '06 , although please check with the Venetian tourist sites for the latest information before booking your flights & hotels - it must also be said from my experience that there is definitly more happening at the weekends, although with the weekends comes the huge influx of people into the city - negotiating your way through St. Marks Square can be fun & more going on, on certain dates. So choose when to visit wisely & if you want to attend parties try & find out before hand what's on when. The Tiepolo Ball is, as I understand it, the ball of the carnival, this year it takes palce on the 23rd of February '06. Looking at the itinery the VENEZIA ROMANTICA Gala Dinner in costume & Austro-Hungarian Ball on the 25th February '06 at The Hotel Danielli certainly looks interesting, as the Danielli is such a stunning venue.
