Its Mardi Gras Time!!! ~ Day 40

From cities all over the world on this day is being celebrated ~ from Brazil where the famous Carneval the Rio Carneval attracts over two million people celebrating in the streets with parades and dancing in the street to the Cayman Islands that also celebrates a major 3 day food fest…to the one that so many have heard of in New Orleans…Mardi Gras that for those that never knew it does mean “Fat Tuesday” which reflects the practice of the last night of eating rich fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season…its a day of celebration ~ a day that is mixed with parades with specific foods like some have pancakes, others concentrate on parades like in New Orleans that the rich colors of purple, green and gold are seen predominate ~ where you might not know but there is huge competitions for floats among those that live in or around New Orleans and to be on a crew is a very prestigious honor…this is a generation to generation and they take their float making very serious…but besides the floats ~ there is the beads, the huge crowds down on Bourbon street and the liquor that overflows into the streets..it is as they say  Laissez les bons temps rouler, (Let the good times roll) so let us show you our outfits to celebrate this occasion ~

It’s Carnival and Mardi Gras time!!!  After having a nice chat with Bouquet Babii from Vero Modero Fashion  {this did happen right after she ran me over with a wall while in the process of moving it} she was so kind and very apologetic that when I did tell her we do a blog she was generous to send one of her Mardi Gras outfits to try out ~ although this was a strictly prim and not mesh sadly my wife could not wear but as you can see there was a male version for me to try on and how festive it looks ~ am ready to dance the Samba during the Rio Carnival ~ when you meander around her shop you really can see the scale of what she is capable of and I did also find a prize from the Menstuff Hunt a suit that will be showing off very soon…The future of Vero Modero looks bright with the new items and the new look…again kudo’s to Bouquet Babii for your generosity…

Mardi Gras …the time when people come out and enjoy the sounds of the street, to watch the elaborate floats that take months to make, and the parties that go on into the night…where people dress up in the most amazing costumes and so much fun is to be had..its a time to let your hair down and move your body to the rhythm of the beat ..soo everyone its PARTY TIME….As you can see wearing the Vero Modero outfit and ready to go dancing in the street…

Wearing the tradition colors of the Madri Gras in New Orleans ~ gold, green and purple are everywhere you turn even in non holiday you will see these colors and yes they have very significant meanings behind them ~ gold represents, purples represents justice and green symbolizes faith…from food like their rich King Cakes, to the beads that get thrown from the floats to the clothing and masks these are the colors you will see…Bourbon Street is the place to be but having visited there in the past during summer you can only imagine how packed that small length of street gets ~ am not a fan of feeling like a sardine so I will celebrate quietly with hubby and Dena…this was a find from Marketplace  that you can grab ~ I added the boots only because Bourbon street has umm no drainage and by the end of the evening you do not want to be walking barefoot stepping in overflowed beer and whatever…..

Let the good times roll for each of you today as the celebration of Madri Gras is not just New Orleans but it is world wide and yes even down under in Australia, Italy, Germany and of course Brazil for their famous Rio Carneval…where ever you are may you enjoy this “Fat Tuesday” and let Laissez les bons temps rouler… hugz
