Bons temps: Mardi Gras

It may not be a lotro festival, but it should be! And so, in honor of this most dramatic of holidays, I decided to create my own Mardi Gras costume; complete with party dress, grotesque masque and a bag of dubloons to throw to strangers and friends.

The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold are said to represent Justice, Faith, and Power, respectively, at least in New Orleans. Now all I need is a Krewe! (Krewe’s are the clubs that make all your favorite floats and costumes, hand out special beads and trinkets, and pretty much own the week of Mardi Gras in the Big Easy.)

Be careful, imbibing too much can lead to the Elaine dance.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!
