It's carnival time.

Ooooh, I do like colour in my life. There was an amazing splash of colour in the 20 21 Arts Centre last week. The Caribbean Arts Festival filled St Johns Church and was well worth going to see. The work that goes into making these costumes is amazing, which are mostly made up of recycled and re purposed second hand materials. I found them very inspiring.

    Thank you Ilona.

  2. The photos actually made me think of that old movie 'Little Shop of Horrors' and the murderous plant called Audrey! Anybody remember that movie? ;)

  3. Toronto has one of the largest Caribbean festivals in the world and the events go on for a week at the end of July and first weekend in August - culminating in a massive parade. The costumes are truly amazing!
