Let the good times roll!

Happy Mardi Gras all! In RL, I kicked off my celebration with some take out Chinese food and jasmine tea. But in SL, I lived it up! I was invited to a Mardi Gras formal affair, so I did a quick change from my feathers and beads only look, and donned a rather elegant Victorian gown in Mardi Gras colors: green, gold & purple. The Montagne Noire gown was part of the Bourbon Street hunt which ended today, Tuesday, February 12, 2013.  I copied the feather to wear as a hair attachment, added some extra beads to give the gown more oomph, and used an old mask I found in my inventory.  I had fun at Bogart’s Jazz Club dancing the samba to Latin music and enjoying the festive atmosphere (a slide show below highlights the fun). After I danced my feet till they were sore, I headed home to pop open another bottle of champagne and enjoy the evening with my date, Mr. Mardi Gras himself, Ted E. Beauregard. Ted E. was a hunt gift from Libby Holiday Store and the decorated console table was from Dreamscape Art Gallery.

I also had a few other Mardi Gras costumes that I got on the Bourbon Street hunt, I wanted to showcase. The next gown is from Felicia’s Fashion paired with a past hunt gift, a Fat Tuesday parasol and Bogart’s Mardi Gras beads.

For a fun and spirited night, Unforgettable Temptations corset does the trick. Do note, this garment can be tricky to get just right (Ted E. was a big help!) And, finally the Iron Tiger collar is just fab!

Mardi Gras Mania

Next Tuesday, February 12, 2013 is Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday.  Mardi Gras is the biggest party in New Orealans, LA USA where parades and parties abound with heavy drinking, beads and floats traveling down Bourbon Street.  The colors of Mardi Gras are purple, green & gold with feathers, beads and carnival clothes are traditional costume apparel.  I am attending a Mardi Gras party and wanted to highlight a few hunt items that you can get for your Fat Tuesday fun! The hunts are Bourbon Street 3 (2L for each item) and Boobs for Beads (1L for each item).  Most hunt items have male gifts as well.
