Just Because: Masquerade

Since the Jewish holiday of Purim is in around two weeks from now, I thought I’d do a a post about costumes.
Dressing up was always one of my favorite parts of Purim and still continues to be, expect now the costumes have matured a little bit. Where I used to relish the opportunity of wearing a princess-y dress, now I like the look of masks; specifically, Venetian carnival masks. They’re intricate and luxurious, and they make dressing up just a little more sophisticated, by adding a mysterious yet playful touch.
