Mardi Gras Maskers a la Venice Carnival in New Orleans

c. N.A. Nungesser
Mardi Gras 2012 Costume Report: Lot of DYI costumes, especially in the Marigny,general fancy dress and festive Mardi Gras outfits, hippies, pirates, mermaids, superheroes, fairy tale characters especially Red Riding Hood and the Wolf, cartoon characters, The 99% & The 1%, V for Vendetta maskers, more political masking about police scandals and local politics, pink & Marie Antoinette style wigs, and much much much more. Including classic Mardi Gras morning last minute costumes: Your pajamas and men in their wife's dress. Those are a far cry from the extravagant cross-dressing by part of the gay community, some of whom now use small pop-up tents as costume structure. And there were a fair number of classic European style masks in the crowd like these and those long-nosed bird like masks.
