Carnival costume ideas from paper
Counted the days until the big train on Rosenmontag. And one trembles before impatience and excitement. What new costumes you’ll see this year? What topics are represented this time and how will you dress yourself? Well, maybe it’s a little too late for the last question. If you but nevertheless still don’t know in what Carnival costume go to the Festival, you can get a certain dose of inspiration for the young artist Asya Kozina . The Ukrainian has a weakness for paper. And from it arise unique creations. The latest of which are the beautiful paper wigs in the Victorian style. “Historical wigs have fascinated me ever, especially those from the Baroque period”, tells Kozina. “It is just pure art and pointless aesthetic. These wigs have no practical application, but still incredibly beautiful.” Paper crafting material also like the artist, because it emphasizes the basic shape and rather provides the details in the background.

A further, very fruitful theme for Asya Kozina is the Mongolian wedding. The Mongolians celebrate their traditional weddings with pride and splendid wedding dresses. These look almost futuristic. With a beautiful headdress, wearing heavy fabrics, they are dressed in their full glory… Particularly impressive are the geometric, clear lines and forms, which has represented the young Ukrainian girl through her art.

The mystical shaman robe created Kozina together with Dmitriy Kozin is no less fascinating. The harsh Siberian taiga and the folklore of the locals have served as source of inspiration here. Ancient mythology and untamed forces of nature have been here the last thrust and at a closer look you can feel it almost immediately.
So don’t stop this fascinating paper art. Kozina has implemented many other projects and ideas. Surrounded by young, professional photographers and assistants, she developed more and more imaginative works of art and celebrates the ceaseless fascination with history, folklore and of life.
