Here is the whole krewe. Everyone looked so awesome. This amazing artist, Lemmie (far left, getting necked) did our zombie make-up. We all had such a good time. Of course it rained like a MF right before we rolled but stopped long enough for us to toss fake little skeletons at the crowd, which totally disgusted them. I don't get why? I thought the skeletons were really cute. I held on to a few myself.
Here is the dress pre-zombie. I think I improved it! Ha ha! I slashed it up, rubbed it in the ashes of the fireplace and had it splattered with blood. The sash (which I aged with coffee) said 'miss 1986" in silver glitter but got pretty bloody. I rode on the float and did the cupped hand beauty pageant wave to the crowd. Many folks got it and did it back to me.
This weekend was so fun and crazy all together. One of my favorite singers came into town for a show Friday night, Willie Heath Neal. Dixie Doll Kathy and I got our picture with him..Swoon...But she took it with her camera and I haven't got a copy of it just yet. She and I went out Friday and Saturday night and had soo much fun. Dixie Doll Heather hasn't been feeling so good the last week or so and she sadly wasn't able to join in any of the festivities. We all really missed her.
This week I am going to busy preparing for pumpkinbutt's birthday party. So, once again, I might not be 'home' much this week. Sorry again, I haven't been visiting all my favorite blogs and leaving lovely comments....I will be catching up by next week hopefully.
