on the topic i was thinking of doing La malintzin, Cortez' Nahuatl wife and maybe i convince more people to also dress up for carneval so we can have a band of aztecs and conquistadors. for next year and i need to figure out how to pull it off without showing both too much skin, but being too covered so you can't even see that i'm wearing pads. I was thinking the skirt, maybe slightly shorter, and a short enough poncho to see my waist. I'm gonna have to shave my legs in that case tho, and idk if i really have to shave my arms all the way but idk how would i pull this off best. It gets really cold and i was thinking about just wearing some black skintight shirt and leggings so i don't totally freeze.
I found macaw feathers by the box for fucking cheap i thought they were expensive so i'm gonna go all out on the kitchyness. Main problem is most textile shops in my city are closed, google fucking sucks ass when it comes to finding new ones, and the one i frequented enough to get lower prices is literally gone like i don't even know where exactly it was it just stopped existing or some shit and someone immediately got the location. I was also thinking of painting like aztec shit on the poncho like human sacrifices and the gods and myths, mostly to flex how much i know on the topic. also idk if i should wear sandals, it gets to the negatives at carneval time, i was thinking i'll just wear moon boots again but i'll cover them so they look like some weird indian snowshoes. Also need to figure out how nahuatl women even acted, i always make an entire character for a costume so i can just pass as the costume, people look when it like someone is just out of context confused on the street like i came in from another world.
