As you probably know I live in a part of the Netherlands where Carnival is celebrated. In the region where I come from it is tradition to make your own costume and to go all out with that costume. My mom started making costumes for herself and a couple of her friends and she passed that skill to me. Below you can find pictures of my latest costumes. These costumes I start with a picture or a sketch of what I want. With that picture I create a pattern and eventually a costume.
