Happy Rose Monday with Rilakkuma

It’s Carnival Time, especially in Germany. On today’s Rose Monday large parts of the country go absolutely crazy. In some major cities people celebrate on the streets, sing and dance. There are also lots of parades and people dress up in colourful and creative costumes. Back in the day people would dress in scary costumes to scare away winter, but nowadays it’s more about looking good and being creative.

As one of our favourite characters – the lazy Rilakkuma bear – loves to dress up too, we chose a couple of pictures of him wearing classic costumes in German carnival:

1. Bee costume – people love to dress up as bees, because it’s super easy to do. Just dress in yellow and black stripes and you’re done. Of course it looks better if you put more effort into it

2. Sailor costume – A hat, a shirt and a scarf, that’s all you need. Every year you’ll see lots of people in carnival dressed as sailors.

3. Rabbit costume – All animal costumes are super popular in carnival: frogs, cats, elephants, monkeys and so on. We just happened to find Rilakkuma in a rabbit costume.

Have some great carnival days.
