Every year I try to do something new at Mardi Gras, so it doesn’t get stale. (People find it hard to believe MG would ever be stale, but anything can become routine if you let it.) This year I did a photo shoot with a local New Orleans photographer, Kimberly Edwards, on Lundi Gras. She is part of an all-ladies krewe that I belong to (KDW) so one of the outfits I wore was the standard corset/bloomers “uniform” we try to adhere to. The ponytail wig was definitely not Storyville period accurate, but it was fun and a huge hit.
I know, right?
