Babugeri Costumes
April 22, 2013 history

Here are some Bulgarians wearing babugeri costumes. Very interesting! Chewbacca would approve. They are dressed as the legendary Wilder Mann and masquerading in a pagan ritual.

The Wild Man is a legendary creature, son of a bear and a woman, a sort of medieval superman. The tradition of celebrating once a year the return of the Wild Man spreads all over Europe and adapts the myth into different materials and hybrids.
