Oh! Carnevale! You are a costume designers dream. Now we have more occasions to wear more costumes! Italian children get to have three days off of school for Carnevale. When you add the weekend, that is 5 days total! So unlike Halloween when you just get to dress up one night of the year, Carnevale offers a plethora of opportunities to don your costume. This year the kids each had a party at school, and we went to some of the festivities in Vicenza and some of the festivities closer to home.

|Well, I couldn't very well mention the Dragon costume and NOT post a picture! He did love this costume, even if it was a booger to get on and off!|
I did get in a small amount of trouble for picking red for the wings. In Bouncing Boy's opinion they should have been some dark color, "like the night." He wasn't with me at the fabric store so I picked red because it's been his favorite color for years. However, he loves the costume in spite of the fact I picked the "wrong" and enjoyed wearing it through out all of the Carnevale festivities without any further complaints!
