Gah! The "King For A Day" exhibit at @antenna.works
took my breath away!
The exhibit features the work of four local costumers: Alana Harris of the @creolebellebabydolls
; Scott Garrett @leather_voodoo
of Lords of Leather (the only leather-oriented Mardi Gras Krewe in the country); Laron Nelson @opulent_designs
- royalty costume creator for the Zulu, Athena, and Femme Fatale parade krewes; and Drew Ziegler @sandooglebomb
- Luke Warm Dud Pumas Wearing Food Pants (totally explains it).
If you're in New Orleans and haven't seen it, get there by Feb 25 before it closes! If you're not in New Orleans (but also if you are), you can watch Lindsey Phillip's marvelous 20-minute documentary film about costuming in New Orleans called "The Exceptionally Extraordinary Emporium" at https://vimeo.com/ondemand/costumenola for a cool buck 99 @lnndy
