making Mardi Gras

My favorite thing about Mardi Gras is the communal creative spirit it conjures. In New Orleans and most of South Louisiana there’s an air of frenzied energy around. It usually (for me) starts right around the beginning of the New Year and then, depending on how early or late Mardi Gras falls, builds up steam until Mardi Gras day in February or March. It’s such a delight to build costumes, headpieces and throws for the simple purpose of sharing wonder and joy.
