The high point of the Karnevalsaison, the street carnival will begin in about two weeks. During this time goes on several days in the stronghold of Carnival and many small communities. Some events take place inside, but the main attraction are the decorated trains that go past waving and celebrating people. Who has still no costume, money can buy is still one expensive. A homemade costume is much individual and usually cheaper. Here I would like to introduce a few of my favorites – to DIY Carnival kostuemen.
