October is the Perfect Time to Plan Mardi Gras Costume
When shopping for your or your loved ones' Halloween costume, be sure to keep in mind that Mardi Gras is right around the corner.
Mardi Gras, especially in New Orleans, is a great excuse to dress up, and residents of the Crescent City sometimes go decades without missing the chance to don a crazy costume.
After you have decided what to be, or what to dress your children as for the 2008 Halloween festivities, start thinking about costume ideas for February of next year. Be careful not to buy any costume materials until after Halloween, however, to make sure you get your costume gear at the lowest prices.
Mardi Gras is a great opportunity to step outside yourself and partake in a community of celebration. Don't miss out on the chance to have a great costume while doing so!
