View Full Version : Mardi Gras World in New Orleans (photo heavy)

04-03-2014, 08:53 PM
Morgan (my youngest), had their school field trip to Mardi Gras World. It is the largest company that makes all the characters and floats for Mardi Gras.

These are all hand sculpted out of styrofoam, hand papermache'd, and hand painted.

I will post some images of the artists at work in the people section

Really nice set, AT. I have a very creepy black and white shot of a NOLA jester that looks very similar to that last one you posted.

Exactly my thinking. Yes, those eyes.

These are so well composed to really show them off so well. Love the vibrant colours and the lifelike expressions. Thanks for showing the amazing detail so well on these.
