I think that those holes in the mouth are so they can get a drink...as when that mask is on
that's it for the day! Early morning to late evening..But they love it and come from all over the world
one couple we were chatting too were from Canada, and look forward to going every Carnival


V2 is just for Robin..so he can check on herSmile she is trying to get dressed again for you too

Thank You all on the Kingfisher comments and votes
as always much appreciated..staying with the Venice scene for awhile now

Just love these Venice carnival masks and elaborate and colourful costumes, Lillian: was hoping that you'd manage to capture a few so I am not disappointed.
And this is a superb shot, wonderful colours recorded and in such immaculate detail.

I jumped the gun before you managed to feature Betty Boop, Lillian. Like your comment about her....Robin will be pleased to see that that's a nice dress (or towel) she is almost wearingWinkWink

I can't help wondering what Betty looks like from the back.

When I saw v2 I thought I Betty'd like it, I'm sure our friend from Gloucester has got a big daft grin all over his face right as I type this. Wink The colours are simply glorious in v1, I wouldn't fancy having to wear one of those all day, the only food you'd be able to have was soup which you could sup through those straws!
