Carnival season is coming, when colorful, costumed celebrations take place across the globe, from Mardi Gras to Maslenitsa. Of course, in many places, it’s simply called “Carnival,” so that’s what we named our gallery, too.

Consider this week’s free images – Lola Tsvetaeva‘s exotic feather vector and Martin Benik‘s mysterious masked woman – your official invitation to the festivities.

Add them to your collection, then dream up some party themes of your own with our full Carnival Lightbox. It’s got everything you need, from glamour and intrigue to goofy good times.

See you at the party!

These images are available for free download until Sunday, 1/27 at 11:59 pm.
