Mannequin Monday- Mardi Gras in the French Quarter

Mardi Gras is a mere two  weeks away and the Big Easy is positively electric with excitement. I’m so behind on our costumes that I’m starting to get nervous but I always pull through with the finishing touches, even if that means burning the midnight oil on Lundi Gras.

While I was out strolling through the quarter a few weeks ago I happened upon this great couple and I was tempted to ask if the costumes were for sale. The detail that goes in to float costumes is incredible and it always amazes me to think about the amount of hours that go into sewing these creations.
