Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to buy or make a costume for the holiday celebrations. Whether you’re going to be celebrating in New Orleans or simply want to honor the city, you can try one of these New Orleans-inspired Halloween costume ideas.
Mardi Gras Krewe Member
If you can get your hands on an actual Mardi Gras krewe member’s costume, this is a great and simple costume idea. If not, try to find something colorful, maybe of shiny material and patterned to resemble some of the traditional costumes. The costumes are usually pants and long sleeves. If you want to resemble someone on the krewe’s court, assemble a large rounded backing out of cardboard or other straight, sturdy material (though not too heavy—you have to wear this all night) and cover it in feathers, fake jewels and other colorful accoutrements. You can go crazy or stick with one color or theme.
