You will not only get to meet new people, but also get to really find yourself. You will not only get to learn more about the place’s history, but also get to discover how vibrant the place can truly be. Add in endless dish choices, unlimited drink options, plain fun turned into awesome fun right before your eyes, and voila – a Shrove Tuesday to remember for a very long time!

That being said, don’t forget these when celebrating Mardi Gras in London:

A Blanket

Celebrating Mardi Gras and other festivals around the world might be exciting; however, it can also be exhausting – especially if you’re a first-timer. Thus, it’s only right for you to pack a blanket with you. This will not only allow you to rest comfortably on the ground after roaming around the event venue the whole day. Just in case the event continues all through the next morning, you’ll have something to keep yourself warm in.

A Camera

Nope, we’re not just talking a phone camera here. And nope, we’re also not just talking about a digital camera here. If you really want to see how lively Mardi Gras can be, why not bring a professional’s camera? This is not only for you to know how it feels to be a real photographer for just one day. This is also for you to capture your moments in the highest quality it can be, even making them vivid as if you’ve been there for so many times.

Funkier Costume The Better!

Festivals aren’t complete without funky costumes. Why can’t we make fun ourselves sometimes? It’s okay to lose yourself during these events because it seems fit! Wearing costumes are best way to conceal our identities. If you want to be wild and you want no one find out who you are, camouflage yourself with funky costumes. Let us teach you how you can pull it off.

Decide Who You Want To Be For A Day

You can be limitless for a day. Find your inspiration in deciding what costume to wear. No idea? We particularly love lady Gaga because she is not afraid to wear anything. She is known for her glam and outrageous costumes. There is no limit on what she will wear next. And she never fails to surprise every time. She is good at surprises and we think, it what makes her a star. You can be anyone, we mean anyone. So let loose and be free.

How Much Is Your Budget?

You may have to spend some cash here. If you want an extravagant costume, you need to ask yourself how much you are willing to pay.  No cash? That’s totally fine. You can call a friend and borrow theirs. You can buy if you have the money and specially if you’re out of time. But if you don’t have the budget, you could create your own.

Cover Your Face With Some Artistic Make Up

Most participants are wearing their very own costumes, sometimes they pull off a simple costume by being artistic in doing their make up. We girls love make up. It’s one of our essentials when going out. Don’t wear something formal okay, that will surely kill the festivity vibe. Wear make up the way you would not normally do it. Add skin-friendly stickers if don’t know how to design. Or add some glitters to make you noticeable.

Head Dresses

It is a simple way of saying,”I may not be wearing a costume but look at my fabulous head dress”. The good thing about head dresses is it change your whole outfit. Even if you are wearing a normal dress or outfit, if you have a kick-ass head dress then you are all set! Head dresses are perfect for people who are not into costumes and make up. It’s easy to wear and can really make you look you’re ready to party anytime.
