You will be wearing your Mardi Gras costume for up to 12 hours, so choose wisely! Full face paint may look great at 10 am, but by evening you'll feel gross. The best advice is to opt for a Mardi Gras mask on a stick -- one that you will not cry over if you lose or gets stepped on! There are a number of Mardi Gras costume shops online to choose a cheap, yet colorful mask from or make your own with a quick trip to the local arts and crafts store.
