This will always be a great costume for everyone who is celebrating carnival in Cologne: Rut un wiess (“red and white”)
Red and white are the colors of Cologne. That means, if you wear something red and white, you are always doing it right. You don’t need much for that. Pretty much anything red and white will work, possibly something striped. This is a very, very easy last minute costume and it also works with every weather and temperature.
