I had a fantastic Mardi Gras. For the first time in a couple years, I actually stayed out for most of the day on Mardi Gras day (usually I’m only out for a couple hours, and then I get bored and go home). It might have something to do with the fact that I switched up the routine this year–instead of going to the Zulu parade, I went to St. Anne, mostly because my friends from out of town wanted to see what it was all about.
I really wish I could show you pics of me in costume. It came out pretty decent, considering I just threw on a few random things Mardi Gras morning (I was still a little hung over from Lundi Gras night, haha). I thought about posting a few pictures here and blurring my face, but it’s just too much of a risk for me to post pics that are also on Facebook (and are therefore identifiable as mine). I have a few hundred friends on Facebook, and I would be pretty naive to trust all of them.
So, since I can’t show you what my costume looked like, I can at least post a few photos that have been on my little point-and-shoot camera for a couple months. They’re low-quality, but hey, they’re recent, and they’re me! These were an attempt at self-portraiture (again), so there are several that are pretty similar.
Actually, I have to go somewhere, so I’m gonna post a teaser pic now, and I’ll post the rest tomorrow. Sorry, but I don’t have time to crop and upload the rest right now. Check back tomorrow!
