Des Touloulous dans les rues de Cayenne en 2007
@credits

The Touloulous are characters from the French Guiana carnival. They are elegently dressed and shouldn’t be recognised. That’s why no skin is shown and some women even wear contact lenses or whig and try to disguise their voice. The costume is composed of a petticoat, a balaclava, a domino mask and long gloves. 
They embody bourgeoise women from the 18 and 19th century
