The weather in New Orleans can be unpredictable so be sure your costume can stand up to the elements. Leaving room to layer clothing if its cold and wearing comfortable walking shoes are too great tips to remember. Cars are banned during Mardi Gras so you'll be doing miles of walking, so leave the high-heeled, sequined stilettos behind (no matter how fabulous they are!). Think not wearing a costume may just be easier? Do yourself a favor and if nothing else have a mask on a stick handy. Just imagine how much you'll really stand out in a crowd if you are not wearing a costume! Can you say “party pooper?”
