Carnival costume ideas made of paper
The days until the big procession on Rose Monday are numbered. And one trembles with impatience and excitement. What new carnival costumes will you see this year? What themes will be presented this time and how will you dress up yourself? Well, maybe it’s a little late for the last question.
But if you still don’t know which carnival costume you will be wearing, you can get a certain dose of inspiration from the young artist Asya Kozina to fetch. The Ukrainian has a weakness for paper. And that is how unique creations emerge. The latest of these are the magnificent Victorian-style paper wigs. “I have always been fascinated by historical wigs, especially those from the Baroque era,” Kozina says. “It’s just pure art and pointless aesthetics. These wigs have no practical application, but are still incredibly beautiful. ”The artist also likes paper as a craft material because it emphasizes the basic shape and puts the details in the background.

Another very productive topic for Asya Kozina is the Mongolian wedding. The Mongols celebrate their traditional weddings with pride and magnificent wedding dresses. These look almost futuristic. With beautiful headdresses, wearing heavy fabrics, they are dressed in all their glory. Particularly impressive are the geometric, clear lines and shapes, which the young Ukrainian has shown through her art.

No less fascinating is the mystical shaman garb that Kozina created together with Dmitriy Kozin. The raw Siberian taiga and the folklore of the locals served as sources of inspiration here. Ancient mythology and unrestrained natural forces have given the last boost here and with a deeper look you can feel them almost immediately.
This fascinating paper art doesn’t stop there. Kozina has also implemented many other projects and ideas. Surrounded by young, professional photographers and assistants, she continues to develop imaginative works of art and celebrates the incessant fascination with history, folklore and life.
