Carnival season is coming to an end, but before it does, us deep southerners are not going out without some more celebration. For many this marks the day before Ash Wednesday and many will make this their last day of eating rich/fatty foods and hard partying before the ritual fasting of Lenten begins (I’ve already began). For others, Mardi Gras is just a tradition of going to parades and friends/family coming together to make memories that last a lifetime. My favorite part of this time are the band members and dance teams that come out for the parades. The sounds of the drums and the other instruments are intoxicating for me and make my spirit come alive. Strangers become your friends and we all stand on that neutral ground with our hands up, dancing, forgetting our worries and catch them beads/throws!
Mon Cheri’s Showgirl Set inspired my Mardi Gras look today. The beading and detail are exquisite and there is an array of colors to choose from at the main store. The set is made specifically for the Slink mesh body. I am wearing the Slink body and felt it was a pretty good fit. The set also comes with standard sizes, but I did not get a chance to see how it fit with my Maitreya mesh body, but I am sure with some tucking and squeezing it could work. Then what is Mardi Gras without a bit of flair? I added one of my favorite masks from DaVal Masks, they make some of THE highest quality on the Grid and are reasonably priced.
The sim that I took my photo on today was the Bourbon Street, New Orleans City Sim and they and they did an awesome job decorating. The sim owner was not online for me to chat with, but there were several other people there that I chatted with. The sim will be hosting their annual Mardi Gras party today, February 9, 2016 from 12-7 pm SLT. The Live music will be sponsored by XANcast Radio and you can go and get a feel for the Carnival Spirit that they have created for you, I definitely recommend checking it out.
Have a great day! ♥
