    LOL! Didn’t expected Louisiana to have such agreat mardi gras with amzing costumes like the ones you posted! I love the one with the lions’ head

      Some of them were incredibly elaborate. I’d see one that really blew me away, and then the next one would be even more impressive!

    That’s a lot of work for a Carnival, reminds me of Viareggio!

    • JoAnna says:

      I’m not sure what Viareggio is, but there’s definitely a lot of work that goes into these costumes for very little time of wear.

    I love that so much time and effort goes into these costumes. I was in New Orleans for Halloween and everyone seemed really invested in what they were going to wear!

      Oooohhhh … I’ll be Halloween in NOLA is awesome! I imagine everyone has tons of scraps and leftover ideas from Mardi Gras, so there’s no shortage of creative costumes.
