The name of the design is OCEANIC by Santi Castro, one of he best designers of Tenerife Carnival for the last 20 years. The costume was one of the designs on The Gala Election of The Queen of Tenerife Carnival 2014. Nuria was the amazing model wearing the costume, more tan 350 kg to walk with and a headpiece of 15 kg. .Santi castro  had the help of students from Galway Technical Institute in Ireland and Liljaskolan from Sweden, fashion & design students learning about our carnaval from the very heart of it.

The 5000 plastic bottles have been cut and tinted one by one to create the ocean underneath her, the wings of the dragons have thousands of cristals and the costume over all have so much emotions and hopes and hours of happy work that this is the only reason to become the Queen of Tenerife Carnival 2014. This was not the winner design but for those helping to become alive, the best reward was seing it on the stage.

Let me show you some of thousands of hours at work to create this costume and the team:
