Travel Theme: Costumes

Am I too late to post a quick post about costumes?  Alisa’s travel theme for last week fits a good many pictures I have.  In my collection I have pictures of costumes with and without people.  To see the ones without costumes I have two posts, one on WP and one on Hubpages.com written about my wonderful tour of Evengeline’s Costume Mansion in Sacramento. Real people (or animals) wear costumes, so this post will focus on living models wearing costumes.

The new Marsha ???

The new Marsha ???  I photoshopped her arm joint seams, but she still looks rather … dead.

I’ll start with the last ones that I’ve seen, in Hawaii, since Lisa said she wasn’t bored with Hawaii yet.  I haven’t written this post yet, but we attended a dedication ceremony for a new building in the McBryde Botanical Garden.  Some of the people participating in the ceremony wore native dress.

Native dress for the men included tattoos, and for some, t-shirts.

I got a little shaky taking this picture.  hahaha  I had my zoom extended out to 270 mm, and I was in too much of a hurry!  hahaha

The girls that sang had their costumes wrapped around them.  It reminded me of a church play, where the church costume designer didn’t really go all out with the costumes, but the cute factor was still there.

The women didn't get as into the total costume as the young man did.  Does it look like he's glaring at me?

Compare the religious ceremony to a commercial situation with people dressed in native costume at a luau.

The costumes were more complete, and dramatic, even for the men.

These girls were having fun being all dressed up.

People from all over the world love to dress up and dance.  At our CCSS Conference in March, we saw Mexican Folklorico dancers in their bright costumes and smiling faces.

These beautiful dancers were dancing at a Thai festival in San Francisco on May 12th in Union Square.

I hope you enjoyed my choice of costumes to share with you.  If you didn’t see the rest of the costumes, check out Alisa’s travel theme.

  1. Lovely choice of costumes. I agree native costumes are always the best for colour and design. I have two lovely wrap arounds from my sister from Hawaii and I wear it as a skirt when it is hot. Beautiful colours.
