What beautiful, colorful custom ware!! Great series of photos!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They are Mayan descendants - and try very hard to make the costumes look as close to what their ancestors might have worn. Thanks, Steven!
Magnifiques détails.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I love all those colors!

Very creative costume
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They claim to be Mayan descendants... and try to make their costumes as close to what their ancestors may have worn.
That's a lot of "make-up" for the occasion, Elizabeth!!! smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yeah! It must take forever to get these costumes on!
Impressionnante tenue !!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I agree!!

I think this is a joy to see and hear, Elizabeth. These detailed pictures show the beauty of their outfit.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was a lot of fun to watch - and to learn about their culture. These folks claim to be Mayan descendants... and try to model their costumes after what their ancestors may have worn.

what a variety of costumes!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Lots of color, for sure!

and bells on her toes.
She will make music
wherever she goes.

Change her to him, add a very scary face and man, what a guy!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile Very good, Mary!
Yes - I wish they didn't have to have scary faces... but I suppose at one time it served a purpose!
Such a wealth of colour, you must have been spoilt for subjects to photograph.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: So true, Brian! I have a lot of shots from that day - hard to weed through!

Your Mayan pictures finally got me thinking. I thought the Spaniards wiped them out. So I read up - they were not all wiped - enough left have a cultural heritage.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - thanks for your interest, Louis! These folks do claim to be the descendants, and try to model their costumes after what their ancestors may have worn.
Wow, what spectacular costumes, Elizabeth. Brilliant colours and brilliantly presented as well.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The colors were amazing, Beverly! Thank you!

I can almost hear that dance! Beautiful colors.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good! The percussion was amazing! Thank you!
What amazing outfits these are ....but they are not a patch on the one I have lined up for Sunday wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They were so elaborate! Oh - I'll look for that.. I'm intrigued!
I bet the ankle wear makes a good rattle! Lovely colourful shots Elizabeth smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes they did! They were creative with their native resources! Thank you, Martin!
A great Mayan montage Elizabeth...Not often you get to say that smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Frank! No... not at all! smile
Very exotic!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - I just love all the color!
