Mardi Gras Costumes
Mardi Gras is a fun party that goes on during Fat Tuesday, which happens to be the last day of the Carnival season. This is the last day before Lent begins. Carnival is a festive season that is held before Lent. These festivals take place all across the world in different cultural areas. Not all areas have festivities, but most bars will celebrate.
Most of the traditions of Mardi Gras and Carnival include masks, costumes, dancing, parades, and indulging in the things that aren't healthy (be it alcohol, fatty, foods, etc). Many times people dress up in masquerade costumes.
There are many costumes to choose from. Everything from jesters, to peacocks and Mardi Gras Queens. You can find costumes that are a bit more modest, but there are costumes that show off your long legs.
Many of the Mardi Gras and Carnival colors are green, blue, purple and black and white. Of course any color would work, as long as it's bright and colorful.
