Ove maškare su bile prije 11 godina. Ponovno se ispričavam za loše fotografije. Premda, ne izgledaju one loše uživo, bojim se da sa skeniranjem i sl. gube na kvaliteti.
Te smo davne godine bili Pierrot-i, tužni klauni.
Dijete br.1 je bilo u vrtiću, a djetetu br. 2 su to bile prve maškare. Otuda i njen zbunjen pogled (hoću/neću plakati?).
Sva djeca u vrtiću i neke mame su se usmaskirale. Bilo nas je 40-tak. Naši vrtićanci su već imali otprije ovu bijelu "haljinu" koja podsjeća na spavaćicu. To je bilo sašiveno za neku drugu prigodu. A ja sam za mlađu htjela sašiti nešto što više podjeća na Pierrota.
This Carnival was held 11 yrs ago. I have to appologise once again for my bad photos. I don't think they seem so bad alive, I am afraid my scanning made it lose their quality.
Anyway, that year we were Pierrots, The Sad Clowns.
Child no.1 was alrady in the kindergarden, child no.2 had her very fist Carnival, that's why she looks so confused (should I cry or not?).
Whole kindergarden and some Moms were dressed up like Pierrots. There was cca 40 of Pierrots :) Our kids from the kindergarden alrady had that long white "dress" that reminds of a nightgown that was made for some other event. Moms only had to add some details for them to become Pierrots. I decided to make entirely new outfit for my youngest.
This was our inspiration; back-white clown, with black hat, white face and a tear on his cheak .
Onda sam bila još mlada, pa mi je trebao kroj za kostim. Koristila sam Burdu, kao obično. Ovo mi je bio gornji dio.Samo nisam radila džepove, naravno. Prednjica i zadnjica mi je bila bijele boje, a rukavi crni. Super easy, baš kako piše!
Od crnog tila sam skrojila 3 reda ovratnika, različite duljine. Važno je da til bude puuuno širok, tako da se može bogato naborati. Za nabiranje sam koristila crnu tanku lastiku, onu koja se može provući u iglu. Til, tako naboran, grebe kožu, zato preporučam da dijete obuće dolčevitu.
I botuni na prednjici su napravljeni slično, od manjih komada tila, skupljenih u cvjetić i zašiveni koncem.
I was very youg back then and I needed a pattern to sew. I used Burda, as usual. I didn't make any pockets, of course. I made front and back white, and sleeves black. It was super easy, just like it's written!
From black tile I cut 3 layers of different lenght, but very very wide. That is very important when it comes to shirring (to shir, to ruffle).
I used very thin black elastic band, the kind that goes into a needle. Tile around a nack is very itchy, so I recomed a child should wear a turte neck shirt.
The buttons are also made out of black tile, shaped like a flower and hand stiched to the shirt.
Ovo je donji dio, hlače. Jednu nogavicu sam skrojila bijelu, a drugu crnu.
This is bottom part, some pants. I made one leg white, and other black.
Ovako je izgledao moj tužni klaun!
Faca joj je baš bila primjerena.
This is my Sad Clown!
An expression on her face was
very appropiate ;)
Crna kapa je napravljena od ženskih hulahopki, točnije od tura. Važno je da su hulahopke deblje. Odlične su one najjeftinije. Odrežu se u polukrug, zašiju se, a na vrh se stavi mali botunčić od tila.
A black clown's hat is made out of lady pantyhose
(see the photo).
The cheapest kind is usually the best.
Cut, sew and put some tile on the top.
Ja sam isto imala kostim. Moj je bio krajnje jednostavan; bijeli gornji dio sa crnim rukavima i bijelo-crne hlače na lastik. Ovratnik od tila, kapa od hulahopki, boja za lice kupljena u DM-u, mislim.
I myself had also very simple
outfit; white shirt with black sleeves and black-white
pants with elastic band in waist, that's all! And some tile around my neck and a hat! The paint for face I had purchesed at drugstore.
Since I got few emails regarding my last post, I will try to explain the difference between Halloween and Carnival:
Carnival is a festive season which occurs immediately before Lent; the main events are usually during February. Carnival typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of a circus, mask and public street party. People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations, which mark an overturning of daily life.
During the Carnival, the mayor of the town hands over the keys to the city to the Carnival master ("meštar od karnevala") and the spirit of the Carnival takes over completely. The festival includes several different events, culminating on the final Sunday in a masked procession.
Many towns in
observe the Carnival period, often incorporating local traditions and
celebrating local culture. Just before the end of Carnival, every town burns a man-like doll called
a "mesopust", who is blamed for all the strife of the previous year. Croatia
Masks are central to the Carnival celebration, and worn to many of the festivities, including concerts and parties. Children and teachers are commonly allowed to wear masks to school for a day, and also wear masks at school dances or while trick-or-treating.
And here is a link about Croatian most famous Carnival :
The Sheep, Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Mickey & Minnie Mouse,
Sandwich, Ants, Frogs, Aladdin , Bees,
