A playful roll behind the mask
"To enjoy freedom far from social constraints and norms and to let the boundaries between fantasy and reality flow away." - This was already the meaning of Venetian masks in the Middle Ages. At that time they were used to disguise their own identity, to celebrate once a year during carnival excessive, often erotic festivals, without having to pay attention to etiquette or affiliation. Castle Events took advantage of this idea as well, with the Venetian masks not only being used for the Eyes Wide Shut parties for the concealment and the accompanying anonymization of the guests. By wearing the famous half-masks, which are perfect for talking and dining, as the mouth area remains open, a mythical atmosphere is created.

Especially with the indigenous cultures of North and South America, the Indians, Aztecs and the Incas, feather headdress was highly regarded. The arrangement of the feathers, the size and color of the headdress were of utmost importance and symbolized the social status of the wearer. Feathers had to be earned, which is why such jewelry was worn almost exclusively by chiefs and members with a particularly high position in the respective society. In order to emphasize the individuality of each guest in the best possible way, Castle Events offers various masks for rental and sale.
