IPTC INFO
CaptionThis costume has one of the funniest origins it first became popular in the 1960s after an advertisement for a Venezuelan brand of detergent called Puloy featured these coquettish women. They wear curly black wigs and cute red dresses with white polka dots along with matching headbands. --- --- --- Marimondas are the clowns of Carnaval. The costume originated with poorer Barranquilleros as a way to make fun of the fancy expensive costumes that members of high society tend to wear. Marimondas wear sacks over their heads have giant flapping elephant ears phallic noses pants worn backwards colorful vests and ties. The marimonda is one of the few Carnaval characters with origins entirely from Barranquilla - with his silly unchoreographed dance he represents the joking rowdy typical Barranquillero.
HeadlineNegritas Puloy is chased by a Marimonda who are the clowns of Carnaval. These costumes originated with the proud Barranquilleros and are very popular during the 4 great days of Barranquilla Carnaval as a result.
