Mardi Gras Madness

Thank goodness my computer is back and in good working order!! Man you don't realize how much you use these things til you don't have it.
So I'm back in business, just in time for the Mardi Gras season. Down here in New Orleans we celebrate Mardi Gras for about an entire month. The Mardi Gras music starts playing on the radio (Mardi Gras Mambo and more), the green purple and gold decorations go up, parades start to roll and MOST importantly the costume boxes come out!!!

We along with every other household in New Orleans have a giant costume box full of fancy outfits, wigs, makeup, boas, masks..you name it. Costuming is serious around here. I've been working on mine for about a week now (in between doll making and the other necessities of life that I must do)

So I will be sure to take my camera to all of the events and share them with you here on my blog. Here's one to start, my daughter NoraLeigh is just as crazy about Mardi Gras as the rest of us. They pretty much come outta the womb that way down here in the big easy:)

I just went through the same thing with my internet service. I was so crabby without it!

The wig is fabulous and I can't wait to see your own costume. It it has as much attention to detail your sculptures have it will be a sight to behold!!!

This may be a little strange but ya'll will get a preview as I'm making a doll with the same costume as myself. No, I'm not a narcissist...just that I had all the fabrics out and it just seemed to work:)
