Carnival, or Fasching, is not only celebrated in Cologne and Düsseldorf. No matter where you are during the “Fifth Season”: you need more than just a perfect costume. If you want your appearance to be an absolute success, you should definitely stop by and look around our shop.
Carnival is also known as Fasching or Fastnacht. The origin of Carnival, like those of many other holidays and festivals, is found in Christianity. With the end of the festivities, the fasting period before Easter begins. Carnival is traditionally celebrated in primarily Catholic areas. Today, however, one can find a Fasching Party just about anywhere. The so-called Fifth Season begins around the 11th of November at 11:11 a.m. The high point of Carnival, though, comes during Fastnacht Week, which begins with Weiberfastnacht.
And on that night men need to watch out for their neckties, because it is a custom for women to cut them off. This is a day when women are the bosses. With the following Rosenmontag or Rose Monday, the high point of the Carnival season is usually reached. In many cities, Rose Monday Parades take place. The parades in Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Mainz are especially famous, but Rose Monday is celebrated in many other cities as well. After the next day, which is Fasching Tuesday – or in the case of Mardi Gras in the USA, “Fat Tuesday” – Ash Wednesday (unfortunately) follows and the time of the fools is over.
So, obviously, Carnival involves a LOT of partying. And in our shop you can prepare for all of it perfectly!
Confetti for the Fasching Party
What should never be missing from any Carnival Party? Right: Confetti. From us you can order Kornfetti, which we produce ourselves. It is also biodegradable and water-soluble. So as soon as it begins to rain, the Kornfetti simply dissolves. That is why it was given the name “BioKonfetti”. You can choose from eight different colors. Or you can create your very own color mixture.
Making the Scene in Style at Carnival
In addition to an eye-catching costume, looking right at Carnival means getting the details right. If you select a dark or gruesome outfit, then take a look at our “bloody” accessories. We have Fake Blood Gel and a Fake Blood Make-Up Stick, which can help you create realistic looking wounds, bites or cuts. And you can top the whole thing off with Fake Blood Lipstick.
With ourUV Hair Chalk you can quickly add the perfect hair color to your costume. You can choose from six different color shades, including Pink, Green and Orange. And after the party, the color washes away easily under the shower. We also offer matching items including UV Eyeliner and UV Neon Lip Gloss.
