Santa Cruz Carnival Queens in Miniature

Barbie version of the Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2003

(Above) In 2003, Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife was Natalia Díaz Mesa, with a costume entitled "Láquesis" (Lachesis), which was designed by Santi Castro and represented Centro Comercial Carrefour. Watch a video of the 2003 coronation.

Among the updates at the Casa del Carnival museum exhibits announced last week was that more examples had been added to their collection of Queens in Miniature.

During carnival this year back in March, there was a temporary exhibition entitled "Barbie se viste de Reina del Carnaval" (Barbie dresses up as Carnival Queen), at the Real Casino de Tenerife on the Plaza de la Candelaria. We popped into the casino while the temporary exhibition was on and grabbed these few photos.
