"MARDI GRAS in New Orleans!!" Personal Page by TravellerMel
Mardi Gras 2007 - my friend Rebecca and I dressed up like tomatoes. We started off as Creole Tomatoes, but ended up as the Hot Tomatoes - anyway...
Mardi Gras 2005 - my friend Lisa had gotten us tickets to the Military Grandstands on St. Charles Ave for every major parade - woo hoo! Mardi Gras day I decided to don a very blonde wig a-la Marilyn Monroe to see if the security guards would recognize me... they didn't. I was able to flirt away to my heart's content!
Large margarita at Superior Grill, $11
Hot pink feather boas, lewd face masks, $20
Getting the perfect picture on Liz's 40th birthday, including the fitting parade sign behind us....PRICELESS!
Rebecca dressed as a catfish, but me - I was the Cuddlefish! The scales are painted paper plates, the tail is styrofoam inside of fabric. The blue tulle represents the water, and my mask and ears are like a teddy bear - very CUDDLY - get it??
The bathtub is actually a hula hoop with a sheet basted around it. Blue netting is the water - I even have a wood-handled scrub brush, scrunchie, shampoo and conditioner attached around the tub. My friend/foe is a redneck (note the scarf) hunter - complete with the mosquito netting around her face. We were a hit!
