Masquerade costume

The Dogon people of Mali perform ceremonial dances dressed in striking masks and costumes. One such dance honours the dead: every morning and evening for up to six days, masqueraders dance in the village and surrounding fields – even on the deceased’s rooftop. Today, the Dogon also perform dances to entertain tourists.

Clothing has become a crucial aspect of everyday life. Certain clothes can completely change a person's appearance. But we should be able to find clothes to a certain occasion. I prefer to wear a comfortable and stylish clothing. In it I go to the University and walk(1) On holidays, in clubs and other entertainment events, I prefer to wear a beautiful dress(2) At work, interviews and other business meetings I should be dressed in a classic style (3) For example suit and a white shirt. Man chooses his own style in clothes. The only difference is that not all people have the taste. Everyone decides who he will be today.
