As a carnival goer, you know there are certain items you need on your packing list to complete your overall carnival slay for the road. Makeup appointments, carnival boots and your carnival tights are necessities. But how does one choose the right look for their costume? Once getting ready, my favorite part of Carnival is my costume preparation; and my tights selection is a main priority. Do I want to shimmer in the sun with Sparkley fishnets, or Naked, an invisible finish fishnet. Honestly, any fishnet style will complement your costume and give it more “ooomph”.
Half the battle, is the limited supply of awesome stockings that will last AND match your complexion. As a chocolate goddess, I’ve always found it difficult to find flesh tone stockings. They were either too ashy looking, too fragile or just not available, until my problems were solved and I found fishnets around 2 and a half years ago.
I’ve been playing mas now as an adult for a solid twelve years and used to play mas in Nylon tights [See here]. Nylon tights provide an airbrushed look but rip extremely easily, they might be attacked by a gem or two before you hit the road and most of them come with a control top lining that looks hideous under your costume.
My personal preference, are fishnets. Not just any fishnets, but Carnivalista fishnets. Yes there is a difference. Carnivalista fishnets literally blend into my skin, you have to stare pretty hard to see them. See examples here:
Golden lurex sparkle is embedded in the yarn of the fishnets to give your legs that glamorous shimmer adding subtle drama to your look.
A tighter weave fishnet, which provides the illusion of smooth, flawless skin and gentle support.
Sexy sheer, toe to waist pantyhose, offer a smooth and sheer look.
Please check my carnival directory to see where you can purchase some stockings for carnival. So tell me, what is your preference? Fishnets or Nylon stockings?
Yours in Mas,
