Saint Anne* Parade 2006

My favorite part of Mardi Gras is the Saint Anne parade. I don't know why, but I really love those ribbons; they make me feel insanely happy when I see them. Maybe it's because I used to tie hoola hoops around me when I was a kid to make old fashioned poofie skirts (I always harbored a secret desire to design clothes). I would hold a little fashion show in the middle of the woods, just for the dogs, getting all tanged up in the branches.

It's only the beginning of costume week:

Look at the thirsty lady:
