Mardi Gras and more!

We have had a busy winter in the last six weeks. There was a great David Bowie tribute party over at the Lowe Mill. I made a spaceman costume to wear. it was glorious wearing a costume that covered my face. Somehow, being anonymous allows a different kind of experience at a party. I was able to observe more of what was going on, it was great! I wore my “Diaz Drag Costuming” Galactic Bodysuit underneath, so I could still be spacey when I took off my helmet. Joanna dressed as a Bowie Space dandy, and we had a great time with old and new friends. My helmet made the rounds.

After all of that excitement, I had to practice my Picasso facepaint lesson for my students at Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theatre. we are working on color blocking. I LOVE FPCT! If you have not signed up for a class or workshop, you should! They offer a variety of stage and technical classes in theatre production from age toddler to adult. Click Here!

we also pulled all of the Easter Bunnies, suits, and vests from storage to clean, repair and ready for March. I definitely hopped to it this year, with a handmade fancy vest and bow tie for each one! Be sure to reserve yours before they are all booked up.

Then of course there were the Huntsville, and Decatur Mardi Gras Parades. I was only able to make it to Huntsville’s this year. It is still a baby as far as parades go. But, this year it was better, because they were allowed to throw beads. I also saw Krewes starting to express themselves beyond the “Party City” Purple, Gold, and Green theme. There were some really creative themes out there. The 1950’s gals, Cotton Candies, NYX, and more! I took some photos. Form your own Krewe next year, and come see us about a theme and costumes! Also, thanks to everyone who rented a costume from us. We appreciate you!

We are also starting to make Wizard of Oz and Emerald City costumes so, I am making OZ hats. Love that green glitter!

I also took a trip to Unclaimed Baggage for their 25% jewelry bling sale. My daughter helped me pick out loads of new costume jewelry to go with rentals at our shop. Plus we said hi to Hoggle from Labyrinth. he was super sad about Jareth the Goblin King passing away, but he showed us his bling collection, and made funny hand gestures with Mia!

Last but not least! we have NEW clown supplies in stock. Palettes, socks, and even fancy $300 Sz 12, Pink Leather, clowning boots on Sale for $100! The socks are only $5.oo a pair and come in a variety of designs and colors!

Have a great week, and see you in the shop!

Sincerely, Figgie
