Fancy-dress and costuming are all about taking on a different persona, and when it comes to matters of masquerade, the Venetians were (and still are) masters. For your Masquerade, Mardi-Gras or festive seasonal event, why not make the most of our wide selection of masks, a few examples being shown below?

You might have invested in a new frock (and if not, we've got a few, some them for sale), and even if you do not need to hire a costume from us, we have a wide range of Venetian style masks in styles and colours to complement your ensemble and add to your air of mystery.

Carnival in Venice is one of the many celebrations around the world leading up to Mardi Gras (or Shrove Tuesday) prior to the sobriety of Lent.
Almost any costume will do, although the Venetian concept of Carnival prefers the elegence of our Georgian/Regency styles, or characters from the Italian Commedia del Arte

Something integral to Venetian Carnival (and which is missing in most of these pictures) are the masks!
