Mardi Gras Costume Accessories

I've been gathering images for possible Mardi Gras costumes. So many parades, so little time. Here are some of my favorite images...

All this would require is some lace, Sta-Flo and elastic.

Simple and beautiful. I'm thinking of adding lace or flowers.

Crystals from an old chandelier will do the trick.

This one might have to wait for a coming year...Anna Pavlova in costume for her Russian dance, 1910’s-20’s. Her headdress is an elaborate version of what is known as a kokoshnik.

Sequins, feathers and lace, oh my!
