Description:

Photograph of one of my original masks manipulated.

I have never been to Mardi Gras but my husband lived in New Orleans for a couple of years and he has entertained me with Mardis Gras stories. I'm sure my reaction would be the same as this design I've created for the Spoonflower Mardi Gras contest. :-) Purchasing a swatch of a design in your desired Spoonflower fabric or wallpaper is recommended so that you can get an idea of the color and feel of the actual design printed on fabric and/or wallpaper. Currently sized for Spoonflower 42” wide fabrics. If you would like this fabric design resized at a smaller or larger scale, please send me a message through Spoonflower or add a message on the comments portion of this fabric design page. Thank you.

anniedeb says: Hi, Janiece. I always enjoy reading about your fantastic adventures. I know your costumes must have been as beautiful and wild as your Spoonflower designs. It's terrible what a crowd of people will do -- ripping off beads. Sounds like you ended your participation at a good time. And I did not even know St. Louis had a Mardis Gras. It should be publicized more! :-) Thank you for taking a look at my design.

whimzwhirled says: We have the second largest Mardi Gras celebration and parade here in St. Louis. St. Louis and New Orleans are considered sister cities. I made some bucks building floats for companies but I was in the parade for many years with my painted up VW. I actually had someone else drive it so I could walk by it and show off my own elaborate costumes. I won queen of the ball a few times with my costumes. The event got too big and too raunchy though and I don't do it anymore. The last year I was in the parade my costume was covered in beads and people ran up to me and started yanking them off and ripping my clothes off. It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. lol

anniedeb says: Thank you, Su. I do have this design in a smaller size in a half-brick repeat but have not proofed it yet. I think I'll take your suggestion and try it also with jagged edges. I hadn't even thought of that. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

su_g says: Wow! This is really something special! I love the way you've integrated a face into these fantastic flying bars of color and all the bright colors, including the magenta or fuschia lipstick! Love the story and comments too! (Can't help feeling this would make a fantastic fabric - seeing it with jagged edges, then in a half-drop repeat on a background in one of the bright greens...)

anniedeb says: "Totally Freaked Out" works for me. My husband still has beads from the Mardi Gras(s) (what's the plural spelling?) he attended. Thanks for taking a look at the design, Janiece. I bet your floats were fantastic and carried that "Whimzwhirled" mark on them.

whimzwh...

whimzwhirled says: Or totally freaked out. Being a Mardi Gras vet, now retired, I saw some mind boggling crazy going on. Warning to all, never create a Mardi Gras costume covered in beads. You will be attacked and assaulted from people trying to rip off your clothing for some plastic beads. That was my last Mardi Gras appearance. lol After that I still worked on floats but never went to another parade.
